  • The Next Big Thing

    by Ganesh Prasad,

    Great interview. I must say I find the approach of WSO2 very refreshing and innovative.

    Mashup server - new model of service composition based on JavaScript and E4X, very powerful.
    Registry/Repository - RESTful, based on AtomPub, not tied to UDDI legacy.
    Identity solution - based on CardSpace, an open (!) technology from Microsoft.

    Plus the more "conventional" stuff like the app server and the ESB.

    Who knows, the Next Big Thing may very well be the WSO2 product suite!

    Keep up the good work.

    Ganesh Prasad
