ZapNote: IONA

The idea of Service-Oriented Integration (SOI) quite simple: rather than requiring systems to understand the details of a system in order to extract information, we can merely expose that system as a service and make queries to the service to meet our needs. SOI is merging different integration paradigms into a single solution set: integration between devices (from handhelds to mainframes), applications (such as Great Plains, SAP, and Siebel), B2B integration, and traditional EAI. IONA has released a platform known as the Orbix End-to-Anywhere (E2A) Web Services Integration Platform that sets the context for a very wide set of products covering the widest range of functionality in an SOI environment.
