SOA acquisition

GCN tech brief

Filling out its line of Service Oriented Architecture products, WebMethods Inc. of Fairfax, Va., has acquired Infravio Inc. of Cupertino, Calif. Infravio offered X-Registry, which stores information about an organization's Web services so they can be discovered by workflow designers or other Web services.

'We've long been of the opinion that the SOA endgame was the build-out of an assembly platform of business services,' according to Miko Matsumura, Infravio's vice president of marketing, in a post on the Yahoo! Service Oriented Architecture mailing list.
