Open Source SOA is Better SOA
For building and operating SOA infrastructure and services, open source SOA software offers compelling advantages over proprietary products:
- Since commitment to open standards and interoperability is a core principle of the open source software movement, building your service architecture on an open source SOA foundation eliminates the risk of "vendor lock-in" associated with proprietary solutions.
- Because active open source projects attract the participation of a broad community of developers with different experiences and insights, the pace of innovation and enhancement in open source solutions is often faster than with single-company proprietary products. With open source SOA software, you're likely to get technology from the leading edge of SOA design and implementation.
- The developer communities that surround popular open source projects are an invaluable resource for the users of the software, and especially for new users. Open source communities can be great sources of advice, feedback, and even application extensions.
- A n open source SOA solution lets you get under the hood and customize or extend the code, if you're so inclined.
- Last but certainly not least, with an open source SOA solution, you'll be able to launch and maintain your service architecture at far less cost than with proprietary technology.
