Past News Releases


AdroitLogic Private Ltd. announced today the availability of the first public beta release of its Enterprise Service Bus (ESB), UltraESB. The UltraESB allows Zero-copy proxying of messages using Non-Blocking IO, to scale and support extremely high numbers of concurrent connections over HTTP/S. In addition, it includes support for B2B integration with AS2, and a custom WS-Security implementation, designed to yield better performance when used as a corporate security gateway.

By moving away from a canonical message format, the UltraESB natively supports multiple types of payloads over transports such as HTTP/S, JMS, File, FTP/S, SFTP and Email (POP,IMAP,SMTP). In addition, it can act as a B2B AS2 (Applicability Statement 2) connector to integrate backend systems, securely with trading partners over the Internet. Fully supporting REST, SOAP, XML, Binary, Hessian, EDI, Text, HTML etc as payloads, the UltraESB ships with a load of ready-to-run samples and documentation. A graphical test utility 'ToolBox' bundled with the UltraESB, contains a HTTP/S client for REST/SOAP/Hessian etc, a TCP dump and capture utility, a load generator, and other useful utilities for testing and experimentation.

The UltraESB has been designed and developed from scratch by its architect, using the knowledge gained by contributing over 70% of the original codebase of the Apache Synapse ESB, as well as supporting its users for almost 4 years. Without requiring the users to learn a new XML configuration language, or write-compile-and-deploy code, the UltraESB is configured with a Spring configuration, and allows mediation to be specified as Java code right within the configuration, separately or as compiled byte code. By supporting JSR 233 scripting languages, it allows the user to use languages such as Groovy, Javascript, Ruby etc. for mediation as well. The UltraESB allows intelligent IDE integration with auto completion and validation, Java mediation editing, and debugging right from within the IDE. Its dependencies have been kept to a minimum set of stable libraries, to enable regular release cycles and quick builds. With JUnit tests currently covering half of the codebase, the UltraESB makes it easier for end users to write unit tests to automate most types of end user testing. The UltraESB is easily managed, monitored and controlled via JMX, and provides advanced support for JTA or local transactions, including suspension and resuming of transactions by different threads of execution.

AdroitLogic offers a range of service and support options for the UltraESB. These include consulting, custom development, sponsorship of feature development, development & production support and training. Additionally, AdroitLogic hosts public user forums, articles, samples and other material on the use of the UltraESB at its website

The UltraESB is offered free of charge for unlimited production deployment. AdroitLogic believes in working closely with real enterprise users of its software, and thus invites them to participate in defining its road map, schedule and features for releases. Becoming a parter with AdroitLogic, offers users access to its source code.
