  2. AS2?[ Go to top ]

    Congratulations! Petals had previously interested me because AS/2 was on the roadmap as a binding component. This seems to have disappeared (along with the roadmap itself!) EDI is still widely used in many industries. AS/2 is a sound technology and is the way most orgs do EDI over the internet. Frankly, I'm surprised not to see more support for AS/2 from ESBs, JBI or not. Kit
  3. Congrats for this juicy milestone ![ Go to top ]

    Great news guys ! I've had first hand experience on Petals, and I must say the distributed ESB feature is just a killer one for anyone who had to deal with configuring remote message routing and transport. In the past months, we've built on top of the Petals ESB an entreprise information system SOA architecture demonstrator integrating several business applications for one of our industry clients. Working with Petals has been very smooth. Now he's been using it for the last three weeks and he's very pleased with the experience and then some. Keep on the good work ! Marc Dutoo Open Wide SA
