Oracle Service Bus is a proven, lightweight SOA integration platform and a key component of the Oracle SOA Suite product family. It eliminates tightly coupled point-to-point connections and replaces them with an intelligent intermediary providing service governance, visibility, interaction and management across heterogeneous service end-points, for both service consumers (service clients) and service providers (business services). OSB is designed to connect, mediate, and manage interactions between heterogeneous services, not just Web services, but also Java and .Net , messaging services and legacy endpoints. It offers configuration-driven service integration with intelligent content and identity-based routing, dynamic XQuery or XSLT message transformation, and optimized transports to ERP and WebSphere MQ-based applications. As well, it implements the latest SOA standards such as WS-RM and WS-Security. OSB also combines integration, messaging, operational service management, and securityenforcement capabilities in a single product.
