Petals ESB is an open source ESB developed by the OW2 Consortium. It is a tool for implementing a service-oriented architecture (SOA). It is standard, modular, and physically distributed, to adapt to large scale infrastructures.
Petals ESB is based on JBI (JSR 208) industry specification. It was the first ESB certified by Sun Microsystems under the JSR 208 TCK. Based on standards, it also supports SOA standards such as BPEL and SCA, and includes EDA capabilities.
Fractal deployment framework, JBI pluggable components, and open source licensing make it modular and customizable.
