Turn your existing systems into an SOA platform using Apache Synapse

If you're planning to transform your existing middleware into a
Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) platform, consider using Apache Synapse. This
easy-to-use open source alternative to proprietary Enterprise Service Buses (ESBs) costs less and requires less effort. This
article gives you a thorough introduction to Apache Synapse and provides a use case
to demonstrate how you can integrate and reuse existing applications using an SOA
approach.

Synapse is a simple XML and Web services management and integration broker that
can form the basis of an SOA and Enterprise Service Bus (ESB). Synapse, which
recently graduated from the Apache incubator, is now a full-fledged Apache
initiative as part of the Web Services project and is an offshoot of the highly
successful Apache Axis2 project. It offers the ability to mediate, manage, and
transform XML messages among a variety of different applications.
