Latest family of WSO2 products released on Carbon 2.0!..

WSO2’s SOA platform story was extended with four new products few days back. That includes WSAS 3.1.0, ESB 2.1.0, IS 2.0.0 and G-Reg 3.0.0. All those are on Carbon platform 2.0. I think this the most stable version of Carbon which we have released so far. Therefore the stability of the products also has increased a lot.

Carbon 2.0 comes with some elegant architectural improvements compared to it’s last version 1.5.1. Latest technical tricks of OSGi have been used to make Carbon more dynamic and flexible.

  • Removal of bundle start levels through the usage of OSGi declarative services is one such step. Now we don’t specify the starting order of bundles and Carbon makes sure all are started in the proper order. This is the expected behaviour of OSGi based system. Or in other words the correct level of dynamism.
  • P2 integration in Carbon is the other major improvement which was done through OSGi techniques. Through this, a user can install the required bundles in Carbon from a P2 repository and create the Carbon instance which consists of his requirements. However the P2 support in Carbon is still young and you can expect more wonders in the future releases of Carbon.

And also I’m very happy to mention that this was a very smooth release for us as developers and we didn’t need any last minute sleepless nights :). This implies the quality of the products and the fact that they are really stable. And also we followed the correct open source release process including alphas, betas, RCs with proper branching and tagging strategies.

So if you are in need of any sort of an SOA solution or studying SOA related stuff, give it a try with WSO2’s SOA platform. You’ll find life lot easier with all the cool features of Carbon. And also, we have already started with our Carbon TODOs for the next release. So stay tuned :)..
