Original Press Release:

Cape Clear 6.5 Extends ESB Leadership for the Enterprise

Mission-critical deployments are simplified through new unified
development tools, standards-based security, and advanced clustering

London - November 29, 2005 - Despite the promises of vendors, for too
long SOA (Service Oriented Architecture) applications have achieved
nothing more than `business as usual` - ever more expensive IT systems
that seldom meet an organisation's strategic goals. Cape Clear Software - recently cited as a leader in the Enterprise Service Bus (ESB)category by Forrester Research - is to change this forever with the launch of Cape Clear 6.5.

Cape Clear 6.5 provides full support for mission-critical enterprise wide service deployments and increased ease-of-use through an Eclipse-based development environment, expanded security compliance through open standards, and new capabilities to deliver enterprise-level qualities of service including failover and debugging.

"One of the early innovators in the ESB market, Cape Clear has grown its offering to a broad suite by adding service orchestration and some management features, and now has one of the deepest implementations of the Web services stack available," states Mike Gilpin, VP, Research Director at Forrester Research in the November 2005 Forrester Wave:Enterprise Service Bus, Q4 2005.

Paul Fletcher, Chief Architect at MessageLabs, a Cape Clear user, added, "In contrast to conventional and proprietary ESB products, Cape Clear's integrated suite is focused solely on simplifying the task of building an SOA. As a user this means you are not forced into buying a product with surplus capabilities that then requires a team of consultants to integrate. Implementations should be completed in a fraction of the time and cost of alternative approaches and are aligned directly with our business strategy."

Cape Clear 6.5 delivers three key benefits that deliver on the promise
of an open, simplified SOA platform for mission critical deployments:

1. Unified Eclipse Toolset - A unified SOA development toolset that reduces application development time and effort. Cape Clear Studio 6.5 provides a single, integrated toolset within the Eclipse Integrated Development Environment, including enhanced BPEL, XML/WSDL and Java development tools. This toolset supports seamless source code control system integration, single-click deploy-and-test capabilities, and
automatic detection and configuration of application server environments.

2. Standards-Based Security - Guaranteed comprehensive and interoperable security across services. Cape Clear 6.5 provides a powerful new security policy framework for WS-Security and the WS-I basic security profile.

3. Mission Critical Scalability - Enhanced reliability and scalability for enterprise-wide deployments. Cape Clear 6.5 provides comprehensive 'one-click' clustering capability, enabling load-balancing and high-availability for stateful BPEL processes.

"Supporting enterprise-wide mission critical applications requires a proven, 100 per cent standards-based, middleware agnostic approach" said Annrai O'Toole, CEO, Cape Clear Software. "With Cape Clear 6.5, we have changed the rules of the game yet again - we're proving that implementing a SOA can be fast and simple, yet still provide the enterprise-level qualities of service that our global customers

Cape Clear 6.5 will be generally available on December 6th, 2005.
