AdroitLogic UltraESB v1.7.0 has been released!: Another major step of the best open source ESB , the version 1.7.0 has been released with a native AMQP transport, Protocol-Buffers based message mediation, AS2 and EDI enhancements and Many improvements to the Zabbix monitoring integration.
The v1.7.0 release is approximately ~37MB in size and includes over 70 samples, test utilities and documentation etc to get started quickly. The release can be downloaded from AdroitLogic downloads page. The complete release note explains all the changes.
Version v1.6.2 released today is mainly a
maintenance release with many enhancements to the
JMS transport, including fixing the ability
to implement store-n-forward MEP with message re-delivery.
The 1.6.0 release has been battle tested and
hardened to become the 1.6.1 and then 1.6.2 with
more stability. It also has few enhancements
to the clustering support, REST support, file
cache handling, enhanced logging and the
This minor release contains a much enhanced logging where all the error level logs have been
re-visited to confirm whether they are actual errors from a users point of view. This enables
users to setup alerting based on the error log statements using a third party log analyzing
tools. The enhancements to the logs make sure that an error log is an actual error which
requires a user attention and hence should result in an alert. Further on the startup if the
server detects a compilation failure of any sequences or configuration errors the server
will automatically be shutdown gracefully without accepting any messages, and the server
state will be set to FAILED so that administrator can inspect improved logs regarding the
error and fix those to start the server cleanly next time.
The ZooKeeper based clustering support has also been improved, where at a sudden forced
shutdown will not affect the next start of the server, by acquiring the previous ZooKeeper
session and terminating it properly to maintain the server session details properly, etc..
This release also contains a fix to the windows startup bat scripts for an issue with
starting samples on the windows environment.
The v1.6.2 release is approximately ~35MB in size and includes over 70 samples, test
utilities and documentation etc to get started quickly. The release can be downloaded
UltraESB adds support for the routing and mediatio...: Protocol buffers are Google's language-neutral, platform-neutral, extensible mechanism for serializing structured data – think XML, but smaller, faster, and simpler. You define how you want your data to be structured once, then you can use special generated source code to easily write and read your structured data to and from a variety of data streams and using a variety of languages – Java, C++, or Python.
UltraESB is the best ESB in usability, performance and extensibility. As many organizations are now moving to protocol buffers to take advantage of its performance and multiple language support, it has been the right time that we introduced support for routing and mediating such messages based on protocol buffers.
Last week we published the results of the Round #5 of ESB Performance Testing, and we've already had feedback to improve the configurations for some of the ESBs.
Of-course, we would be happy to work with other ESB vendors to ensure that the ESB configuration resources now hosted publicly at https://bitbucket.org/adroitlogic/esbperformance is optimal for each ESB compared in both configuration and performance tuning details.
We've just published detailed instructions for re-executing the Round #5 on an EC2 node - read about it here on http://esbperformance.org
Its been sometime since we've compared the performance of free and open source ESBs.. and now its time for the next round..
Amazon EC2 AMI to be published!
At the end of this round, we will publish an Amazon EC2 machine image (AMI) with the selected ESBs so that any end-user can simply fire up an instance of this image, and re-run the performance suite to compare the ESBs of his choice!
