Cape Clear Delivers 3 New Innovations to SOA and ESB

    - Cape Clear 7.5 introduces a new, powerful graphical SOA Assembly Editor
    that radically simplifies the creation of the most common SOA
    and bridges the gap between the REST and WS-(*) worlds;

    - Cape Clear 7.5 extends its "On Demand Integration" strategy with support
    for multi-tenanted integration for both SaaS and Enterprise Shared

    - Cape Clear 7.5 also adds significant support for the maintenance and
    management of large BPEL deployments.

    SAN MATEO, Calif., Sept. 25 /CNW/ -- Cape Clear(R) Software, the
Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) Platform leader, announced today that the 7.5
version of its ESB platform version is now immediately available to customers.
As a recognised leader and innovator in the services-oriented architecture
(SOA) and enterprise service bus (ESB) markets, Cape Clear is committed to
delivering the best of graphical ease-of-use tooling, proven enterprise
scalability and unique capabilities for On Demand Integration in a single
unified product distribution. Cape Clear 7.5 combines new Eclipse tooling that
automates the most common tasks in SOA application development with a unique
multi-tenanted ESB that enables On Demand Integration; all of which is
underpinned by the most proven and scalable BPEL technologies in the world.
Cape Clear 7.5 takes SOA and ESB technologies to the next level.
    "For the last 6 months we've been saying that the SOA world is colliding
with the On Demand world", commented Annrai O'Toole, CEO of Cape Clear
Software, Inc. "With this release of Cape Clear 7.5 we're showing exactly how
these two technology trends can be combined.  This release is not only a great
leap forward in terms of ease-of-use for building SOA applications, but it
also combines SOA with On Demand deployment models."
    SOA Assembly Editor
    In building a SOA application, the developer has to deal with many
important but difficult tasks: the choice of security policy, the choice of
underlying transport, the need to transform data into and out of the service
and the need to handle errors. This difficulty is compounded by the fact that
these tasks may involve coding, configuration files and management tasks in
several different products. Cape Clear 7.5 is the first product to unify all
of these tasks into a single graphical editor. The SOA Assembly Editor allows
developers to select standard items such as transports, transformations,
routes and security policies from a palette and graphically clip them together
to create an Assembly. This Assembly is then deployed as a single Spring-based
artefact. The Cape Clear SOA Assembly Editor offers the following key

    -- Single unified Eclipse-based graphical environment in which end-to-end
       mediations can be constructed in minutes;
    -- Easy integration with REST resources. No assumption of SOAP--works on
       any XML or non-XML inputs and outputs;
    -- Support for 15 pre-built transports: Including REST, FTP, email, JMS,
       XMPP and RSS.

    Multi Tenanting for On Demand Integration
    There is a long-term move towards an On Demand model - as instanced by
Software as a Service (SaaS) ISVs and enterprise shared services. Integration
is no exception to this pervasive trend. In order to fully support the shared
services model, multi-tenanting is an absolute necessity. Cape Clear is the
first ESB to support a segmented multi-tenanting capability where SOA
integrations can be shared and segmented by customer or user. With this unique
multi-tenanting capability as part of the baseline ESB, Cape Clear customers
can achieve much greater re-use of services, improved security through the
segmentation of processes and data used by those services, and powerful
management and monitoring of services on a per user basis.

    -- Sharing of integrations, with the possibility of individualized
       customization, greatly increases productivity;
    -- 'Customer ID' property may be added in one-click in the Assembly
    -- Logging, reporting and management are all segmented per-customer.
    Enterprise BPEL deployments
    Cape Clear has extended its Business Process Execution Language (BPEL)
capabilities to provide rich support for large and complex BPEL deployments.
In the course of implementing a BPEL application, customers need support for
on-going change management and maintenance of BPEL processes. They also need
comprehensive utilities to manage and scale BPEL databases. Cape Clear 7.5
provides new functionality that enables customers to perform real time
maintenance, including in-place updates, on running BPEL processes.

    -- Message Replay and pseudo-reliable messaging over http greatly enhance
       BPEL application stability.
    -- Dynamically add variables to deployed BPEL processes, and edit
       variables for in-flight processes;
    -- Pruning and archiving utilities for management of large (multi-million
       instance) BPEL databases;
