JBoss Portal 2.2 Advances Open Source Portal For Enterprise SOA Deployment

JBoss Community and Customers Help Drive Simplified Development and New Enterprise Features for JBoss Portal 2.2

Jboss Open SourceJBoss the Professional Open Source company, has announced JBoss Portal 2.2, the latest version of its open source, Java portal product. A core piece of the JBoss Enterprise Middleware Suite (JEMS), the first open source platform for SOA (service-oriented architecture), JBoss Portal 2.2 adds greater simplicity to development and deployment, more standards support and new features for security and clustering that appeal to the enterprise market.

With JBoss Portal 2.2, JBoss is delivering on its roadmap to build a broad-scope open source portal product that enterprises can leverage as a foundation for an SOA. Gartner projects that enterprise portals will be the first major application of SOA concepts for more than 50 percent of enterprises through 2007. This places JBoss Portal, already the fastest growing open source Java portal in terms of adoption, as one of the top portal choices for enterprises because of JBoss' installation base, expansive partner ecosystem and track record for technology innovation.

"This latest release of JBoss Portal is the culmination of efforts between JBoss core developers and the community, which includes our customers, partners and contributors," said Pierre Fricke, director of product management, JBoss, Inc. "With enterprises shifting away from traditional applications to a more agile SOA, JBoss Portal provides an attractive, lower cost alternative to proprietary portals. By choosing JBoss Portal, enterprises are choosing a JEMS product, which means they will always have flexibility and choice when it comes to transforming their business through SOA, and it's all backed by world-class support and services."

Like all JEMS products, JBoss Portal is supported by a large and vibrant community that helps drive new features and quality assurance throughout the development lifecycle. The community is also enhancing JEMS platform with related technologies such as portlets and content management systems that enable enterprises to pick and choose the extensions that make the most sense for their portal applications.

"Cignex helps customers implement the right open-source technologies to solve their business problems. JBoss Portal 2.2 significantly expands its enterprise-level features, making it an attractive solution for customers looking for a standards-based presentation and content management solution," said Munwar Shariff, CTO of Cignex Technologies, a certified JBoss systems integrator partner. "Cignex is currently an active participant in the JBoss Portal community and already working to extend JBoss Portal with our customers. We look forward to helping more enterprises implement this latest version as a part of their total solution."
