Open source middleware company WSO2 will announce general availability Monday of its WSO2 Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) for Web services.

Based on the new Apache Synapse 1.0 Web service management and integration broker, the ESB features both Web services and XML capabilities. The ESB provides a platform for routing messages with sub-millisecond overhead. It can scale to manage thousands of simultaneous connections.

The ESB extends the Apache Synapse XML router and mediation engine with an integrated registry and a graphical interface enabling administrators to manage Web service interactions. Services can be virtualized, enabling users to route and manage services without changing application code, WSO2 said.

A Web-based interface is featured. WSO2 offers service and support options for the ESB.

Synapse, according to Apache, is a Web services intermediary and SOA framework.
