Eventually, there also will be a business analysis component to JBoss' SOA platform, which will make it more competitive with current SOA infrastructure offerings on the market, said Craig Muzilla, vice president of Red Hat's Middleware Business.
Red Hat also launched two other JBoss.org projects Thursday. One is RHQ, a management platform jointly developed with Hyperic. Eventually, RHQ project will serve as the code base for JBoss Operations Network 2.0 (JON 2.0), due out by midyear.
The RHQ project aims to develop a common services management platform that will be used in future versions of both the JBoss middleware and Hyperic's products, said Katrinka McCallum, vice president of Red Hat's newly established Business Management Unit.
Source code for RHQ is available for licensing now under the GPL open source license. The code, as well as additional project information and community forums, are accessible online at the project's Web site.
Red Hat also introduced a JBoss SOA governance project aimed at keeping track of how enterprise composite applications and services are developed, deployed, and managed throughout their lifecycle. The first open source code for the project, JBoss.org DNA, will be available in 30 days, with more products and source code to come to tackle other areas of governance, according to Red Hat.
