"A new form of Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) infrastructure - combining MOM,
Web Services, transformation and routing intelligence - will be running in
the majority of enterprises by 2005," said Roy Schulte, Vice President and
research fellow, Gartner, Inc. "ESBs are well suited to be the backbone for
service-oriented architectures and the enterprise nervous system."
"The PolarLake JIntegrator delivers the promise of the Enterprise Service
Bus with its combination of enterprise grade runtime server and productive
tool set," said Ronan Bradley, CEO of PolarLake. "The PolarLake JIntegrator
is the first Universal ESB, allowing companies to get the benefits of the
ESB architecture without the additional cost of buying another MOM product.
Additionally, they can use the PolarLake JIntegrator to link across multiple
MOM or Internet protocols".
This is the first in a series of exciting product releases previewed by the
company last month, focusing on the key problems associated with integrating
XML-based interactions with existing Java-based applications.
