Sun Microsystems has launched version 6 of its Sun Java Composite Application Platform Suite (Java CAPS) 6service-oriented architecture (SOA) and business integration software.

Sun has also released a master data management (MDM) suite, a solution that gives users a single view of their customer data, and helps manage customer relationships. Java CAPS 6 is the 'first SOA platform by a major technology provider built on Open Source through the Open ESB community', the company claims.

New enhancements to Java CAPS include a modular Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) for rapidly coupling applications; advanced event processing and business process management capabilities; and alignment with latest versions of the Sun GlassFish Enterprise Server and NetBeans Integrated Development Environment (IDE) software.

"We are changing the way products are developed by collaborating with Open Source communities," comments Mark Herring, vice president of marketing, software infrastructure, at Sun. "Java CAPS 6 is a result of this effort, and incorporates feedback received from community members, such as a modular and open platform. We also addressed the needs of existing customers by offering easy ways to upgrade and backwards compatibility to previous versions."
