WSO2 Intros Enterprise Integrator 7.0
October 8, 2019
is becoming an integral part of software development as the applications
driving today’s digital businesses combine data, events, and services
from within the organization, throughout ecosystems, and across devices.
As a result, IT organizations increasingly need to adopt a range of
integration styles and architectural integration models while keeping
pace with agile app development. WSO2 addresses this demand with today’s
introduction of WSO2 Enterprise Integrator 7.0, the open-source,
cloud-native, hybrid integration platform for APIs, data, and event
With WSO2 Enterprise Integrator 7.0, enterprise application development and integration teams now have the functionality in a single, hybrid integration platform to help them adopt emerging best practices for delivering modern, distributed cloud-native applications.
“Using centralized integration delivery teams of specialists who build flows on an ESB is insufficient when faced with streaming analytics, hybrid cloud environments, software as a service (SaaS), agile architecture and process automation,” according to the Gartner report, Essential Skills for Modern Integration Architecture1. The report further notes that “Cloud platforms, modern application architecture and new data processing techniques require you to create more integration flows in less time. To accomplish this, application technical professionals must learn the API, agile and cloud integration skills identified in this research.”
“WSO2 Enterprise Integrator 7.0, the first platform to leverage the Ballerina language, offers a revolutionary approach to closing the integration gaps often left by traditional ESBs in supporting modern, cloud-native app development,” said Paul Fremantle, WSO2 CTO and co-founder. “Whether connecting services, events or data, developers now have the flexibility to configure or code integrations into their work; adopt agile approaches to integration; and begin to merge the worlds of development, integration, and DevOps.”
Integration for Modern Apps
Ballerina Integrator simplifies integration by offering high-level abstractions to represent services, endpoints, and network data types, while providing a sequence diagram-based visualization of interactions. Since Ballerina is a programming language, developers can apply agile methodologies to integration and speed the development time of integration projects. Additionally, they can leverage the language’s higher-level abstractions to quickly integrate applications rather than spend time writing boilerplate code.
for Building, Deploying and Managing Integrations
Micro-Integrator is supported by Integration Studio, which offers a graphical drag-and-drop experience for building integrations along with seamless integration of continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD) pipelines. Additionally, it provides code-driven integration tooling based on Visual Studio Code for developers who prefer this approach.
Support for Kubernetes Deployments
Enhanced Features for Managing Integrations
Most IT organizations already have preferred solutions for analytics and business process management (BPM). Therefore, WSO2 Enterprise Integrator 7.0 has been enhanced to support the use of third-party applications, such as Prometheus, Grafana and ELK for analytics, and Camuda for BPM. Additionally, existing customers can use the latest versions of the Integration Analytics and WSO2 Business Process Server components of WSO2 Enterprise Server 6.X, which WSO2 will continue to support and update.
