  • NEXUSe2e (Open Source eBusiness Messaging Server)
  • Web Services – Navigating the eConnectivity landscape can be daunting at times, especially when there are existing legacy systems, legacy software and diverse operating systems and equipment which need to communicate with each other. It is critical to make sure that any software developed to maintain standards works equally well across any platform, operating system, and programming language.
  • The OASIS Web Services Interoperability (WS-I) Member Section advances best practices for selected groups of standards, across platforms, operating systems, and programming languages. WS-I comprises a diverse community of Web services leaders from a wide range of organizations.
