The SwitchYard team has been hard at work in the 0.5 release crafting some cool Eclipse-based tooling for creating SwitchYard applications. The goal of the tooling is twofold:
Provide a visual representation of a service-oriented application. Integration and SOA apps can get quite sophisticated and it's easy to lose sight of the composition of your application without a visualization.
Streamline the development process by making it quick and easy to create service-oriented applications from a visual representation.
We still have a ways to go, but I think what's there now is quite impressive. Here's a quick video I put together showcasing some of the features being worked on. Do your eyes a favor and watch it expanded in HD and not embedded.
