Open ESB implements an Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) runtime using Java Business Integration as the foundation. This allows easy integration of web services to create loosely coupled enterprise class composite applications.
It hosts a set of pluggable component containers, which integrate various types of IT assets. These pluggable component containers are interconnected with a fast, reliable, in-memory messaging bus called the Normalized Message Router (NMR) also referred to as the JBI Bus. Service containers adapt IT assets to a standard services model, based on XML message exchange using standardized message exchange patterns (MEP) based on abstract WSDL. This improves interoperability and allows a mix-and-match of technologies from various vendors.
