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:


  1. 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.
  2. 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.




As always, we would love to hear your feedback.  Swing by the forums and let us know what you think.
