TIBCO ActiveMatrix® Developer Center
TIBCO ActiveMatrix® is a service platform for heterogeneous SOA. It gives enterprises a simpler and more productive way to deliver service-oriented applications by cleanly separating the applications from the technology details. To help with this, ActiveMatrix offers an entire suite of products with a range of functionality from standalone mediation to service composition development to integration to lifecycle and operational service governance.
This Developer Network provides an opportunity to evaluate two products in the ActiveMatrix SOA suite: TIBCO ActiveMatrix® Service Grid and TIBCO ActiveMatrix® Service Bus.
Which Product Do I Need?
|I want to||I want to|
|onboard a large number of services for reuse||build composite application that leverages existing services and existing code|
|isolate service consumers from providers||visualize interdependencies among components|
|provide a level of indirection for transformation, routing and other mediation tasks||build applications across different technologies (Java, .NET, C++) with minimal effort|
|have a zero-coding environment||manage heterogeneity without having to become an expert across technologies|
|have a lightweight container||deploy/manage/scale without distinguishing underlying technologies|
What is it?
TIBCO ActiveMatrix® Service Bus
TIBCO ActiveMatrix® Service Bus is a lightweight enterprise service bus that helps organizations bridge the mediation gap in their SOA infrastructure. It reduces complexity and increases flexibility and reuse by replacing hard-coded service dependencies with configuration, and can be used to quickly on-board services from a third-party environment or a TIBCO-based infrastructure.
- Reduces complexity by enabling quick on-boarding of a large number of services.
- Lowers cost by providing an SOA infrastructure that fits into a heterogeneous environment.
- Saves time and reduces complexity with role-based lifecycle management.
- Simplifies management of mediation and provides built-in governance.
- Increases flexibility and service reuse.
ActiveMatrix products share an underlying core called TIBCO ActiveMatrix®
Foundation. ActiveMatrix Foundation is not a standalone product, but a service virtualization
platform with embedded governance that can be leveraged across ActiveMatrix products.
ActiveMatrix Service Bus includes ActiveMatrix Foundation, a mediation container, and transports such as SOAP/JMS, SOAP/HTTP
TIBCO ActiveMatrix® Service Grid
TIBCO ActiveMatrix® Service Grid reduces the complexity of heterogeneous SOA by enabling IT organizations to develop the business logic with Java and .NET, and to assemble, deploy, host, and manage heterogeneous services as composite applications on a unified foundation.
- Increases developer productivity and service reuse.
- Reduces architectural complexity.
- Simplifies management of composite applications.
- Enables horizontal scaling at runtime with no disruption to service.
- Increases operational control and security.
ActiveMatrix Service Grid has ActiveMatrix Foundation as the underlying core and includes the Java and .NET containers for hosting code along with the mediation container and transports such as SOAP/JMS, SOAP/HTTP
In other words, ActiveMatrix Service grid includes ActiveMatrix Service Bus and Java and .NET containers.
