WSO2 API Manager 2.0 Addresses Performance Demands of High-Traffic API-Driven Apps While Strengthening API Governance and Creation

WSO2 is rolling out WSO2 API Manager 2.0, which adds significant new functionality for addressing the performance demands of enterprises’ high-traffic API-driven applications, as well as strengthening API governance and creation. Version 2.0 is the latest release of WSO2 API Manager, the only 100% open source enterprise-class API management product to combine easy, managed API access with full API governance and analysis. Using WSO2 API Manager, IT organizations can set up their own consumer-like API Store where developers can easily subscribe to and consume APIs. Meanwhile API publishers have complete API lifecycle governance from creating to publishing, deprecating and retiring APIs as well as analytics and metrics to support decision-making and enforce service-level agreement (SLA) policies. With version 2.0, WSO2 API Manager: Enhances analytics to provide greater insight into API usage, performance and anomalies; Introduces a new Decision Manager featuring a dynamic throttling engine to manage and scale API traffic; Strengthens governance across APIs, services and applications with full API lifecycle visualization; Enhances the developer experience via new functionality for automatically creating a client software development kit (SDK). Significantly, the same multitenant, cloud-enabled WSO2 API Manager software can run on servers, in a private cloud, public cloud or hybrid cloud environment, providing the flexibility to support a range of API-driven applications, from web and mobile commerce to partner ecosystems and the Internet of Things, among others. Federated access to APIs across multiple entities empowers enterprises to create new models for collaborating and monetizing APIs. And because API management does not occur in a vacuum, WSO2 API Manager is pre-integrated with all other products in the comprehensive WSO2 platform, so developers can focus on building their solutions, not worrying about how to connect the underlying technologies. WSO2 API Manager 2.0 will be generally available by July 15, 2016, and the beta is available for users that want to begin evaluating the product’s functionality. WSO2 API Manager 2.0 is delivered as a software download that can run directly on servers, on top of a private platform as a service (PaaS), or on top of infrastructure as a service (IaaS), such as Amazon Elastic Computing Cloud (EC2), Linux Kernel Virtual Machine (KVM), and VMware ESX.

WSO2 Announces Introduction of WSO2 Enterprise Service Bus (WSO2 ESB) 5.0

WSO2 announced the introduction of WSO2 Enterprise Service Bus (WSO2 ESB) 5.0. WSO2 ESB 5.0, the newest release of WSO2’s lightweight, high-performance mediation platform: Adds analytics about mediation to gain greater insights into system performance. Extends integration strength with support for the Java Message Service (JMS) 2.0 and WebSockets transports plus the addition of several new software as a service (SaaS) connectors. Simplifies ESB deployment with enhanced tooling for visual data mapping and message mediation debugging. WSO2 ESB 5.0 incorporates analytics to help enterprises better understand the processing that is carried out in WSO2 ESB and make more informed decisions. ESB analytics provide dashboards with drill-down capabilities, which allow customers to instantly understand the behavior of mediation flows and trace transactions as they move through the system. Customers can leverage the published data as well as custom-published data to create their own dashboards. Mediation Statistics – WSO2 ESB 5.0 provides dashboards for viewing and monitoring different measures of system performance, such as mediation statistics on the most used services, success rates, or failure rates. These stats are available for all artifact types, including mediators, sequences, proxy services and APIs. Using this information, developers can gain insights into mediation flows, including response times and the number of requests and responses. Additionally a composite view enables users to compare the performance of different services. Mediation Tracing – WSO2 ESB 5.0 adds mediation tracing to provide more detail into messages passed in mediation flows and verify conformance with integration use cases, helping to ensure the quality of the implementation. Developers can now trace the message payload at different points within the message flow and identify performance bottlenecks. Additionally, users can trace and examine statistics, such as processing time, at a granular-level or compare different mediators in order to detect errors and anomalies and take corrective action faster. Expanded WSO2 ESB Support for Transports and Connectors: Version 5.0 of WSO2 ESB further expands the ability of enterprises to connect a diverse range systems and applications. The newest release supports nearly 20 of the industry’s most widely adopted transports with the addition of JMS 2.0 and WebSockets. Additionally, WSO2 ESB works with a rapidly growing number of connectors for third-party systems. JMS 2.0 – WSO2 ESB 5.0 supports the Java Message Service JMS 2.0 transport, which improves the scalability of Java applications and features an API for sending and receiving messages, reducing how much code developers need to write. It also simplifies applications for developers by allowing a Java Enterprise Edition (Java EE) application server to create and manage JMS objects. At the same time, enterprises that already use IBM MQ Advanced Message Security (IBM MQ AMS) for their transport layer can now integrate WSO2 ESB 5.0 via JMS 2.0 in order to augment their layer with mediation, transformation and routing services. WebSockets Transport – WSO2 ESB previously added the ability to use protocols, such as MQTT, that are widely used for IoT and mobile apps. Now, with the addition of WebSockets support in version 5.0, WSO2 ESB extends support for IoT and mobile applications to include near-real-time communications. WSO2 ESB Connectors – Since the last release of WSO2 ESB, WSO2 has expanded the availability of connectors in its WSO2 Store by 50%, bringing the total to 150-plus connectors. The connectors are pre-integrated with WSO2 Developer Studio for ESB and available at no cost, so developers can simply download them to gain instant connectivity to a host of popular applications, covering a range of verticals—such as enterprise resource planning (ERP), customer relationship management (CRM), finance, human resources (HR), sales and marketing. Visual Data Mapping – WSO2 ESB 5.0 introduces an expanded version of WSO2 Developer Studio for ESB featuring a data mapping tool that visually maps input data into output data, making it easier for developers to convert and transform data from one format to another, as well as to save time when mapping between the different data formats used by different systems. The data mapping tool supports JavaScript Object Notation (JSON), Extensible Markup language (XML), and comma-separated values (CSV) formats. Mediation Debugging – Version 5.0 of WSO2 ESB extends the existing graphical mediation flow designer in WSO2 Developer Studio for ESB to allow developers to swiftly debug mediation flows, verify if they are operating as intended, and proactively identify errors more efficiently.
