[] Project Declaration: SOA Tools Project

As per the Eclipse Development Process, we are notifying the Eclipse Membership-at-Large of the intent of IONA Technologies, supported by Sybase and ObjectWeb and others to propose the SOA Tools Project (STP) as a top level project.

A brief description of the project is below. The project proposal will be posted at

Project Declaration for "SOA Tools Project" STP

The goal of this proposed project is to put the fundamentals in-place so that an extensible tool set made of components and exemplary tools for constructing SOA applications is created. STP will leverage the existing work of the other projects like Data Tools and Web Tools Platform projects. To this end, the project will strive to create a highly usable and consistent environment that works well with associated technologies, whether being used by a developer working/creating a service, an administrator maintaining or monitoring a production system, or constructing a larger SOA Network.

Such an environment starts with key frameworks designed both for use and extensibility. Examples include the location or creation of a service consumer or provider, the consumption of these services, the configuration of the physical attributes (transport, message format) and the policies required to access or consume the like (security policy, access control, transactional, availability). Further the ability to locate and add services to the SOA interactions like transformation, routing, for process orchestration to a broker or end-point needs to be addressed.

Finally the creation of artifacts that can be used to deploy, enforce or manage said SOA participants’ in an extensible way will be addressed.
