WSO2 Registry 1.1 released June 22, 2008

Posted by sandakith in Open Source.

The WSO2 Registry team is pleased to announce the release of its
version 1.1.

The WSO2 Registry is a hub for managing data in a web-friendly and
community-enabled way. It was built with enterprise metadata for SOA in
mind, but really it’s up to you – the Registry can hold any kind of
“stuff” including images, service descriptions, text files, office
documents… and every resource you put in the Registry becomes a center
for social activity.

Eschewing the complexity (and WS-* focus) of specs like UDDI, our
Registry uses the Atom Publishing Protocol (via Apache Abdera) to offer
a standard and RESTfully simple remote interface, which can be accessed
easily by custom code, feed readers, and even browsers.

The Registry has been designed both to encourage “grass-roots” community
around your data and also to allow for IT-friendly governance. A full
feature list follows. We hope you’ll find many uses for it, and that
you’ll share them with us as we work to make it even better!

The release can be obtained from: http://wso2.org/downloads/registry
