WSO2 Web Services Framework for PHP v2.1.0 Released


Written by Sami

It has been a while since we released WSF/PHP the most complete Web Services framework out there.

This release comes just at the right time, to keep the world in formed that the project is alive and also let the communities out there know that WSO2 continues to contribute to open source.

In terms of business, there are much more lucrative projects that we have in WSO2, yet, we do want to continue to keep releasing and improving the WSF/PHP project, keeping to our open source norms. This project has loads of users proven by the download numbers.

Also, we keep on hearing from the users that the support they get from the open forum is so good, that they hardly need to buy support. Bad for business, but good for open source :)

You can download the release from:

The release fixes multiples of bugs and also adds some improvements. You can visit the project home and project documentation for more information.

FIX Your SOA with WSO2 ESB


Written by Hiranya Jayathilaka

I believe WSO2 ESB is the ONLY complete enterprise service bus which supports the FIX (Financial Information eXchange) protocol. The FIX transport of WSO2 ESB enables the service bus to communicate with FIX acceptors and initiators. FIX messages received by the service bus can be routed, filtered or transformed using the existing set of mediators. If needed, FIX messages can be transformed and sent to external systems over different protocols such as HTTP and JMS.
I published an article titled "FIX Your SOA with WSO2 ESB" which explains how to setup the FIX transport in WSO2 ESB 3.0 and how to use it to implement a variety of integration scenarios. It gives a good overview on how to develop high performance finance data routing systems using WSO2 ESB. Hope you'll like it!
