Type enterprise service bus
License Apache License 2.0

Apache ServiceMix is an enterprise class open source distributed enterprise service bus (ESB) and service-oriented architecture (SOA) toolkit . It was built from the ground up on the semantics and APIs of the Java Business Integration (JBI) specification JSR 208 and released under the Apache License. ServiceMix 4 also fully supports OSGi. ServiceMix is lightweight and easily embeddable, has integrated Spring support and can be run at the edge of the network (inside a client or server), as a standalone ESB provider or as a service within another ESB. You can use ServiceMix in Java SE or a Java EE application server. ServiceMix uses ActiveMQ to provide remoting, clustering, reliability and distributed failover.

ServiceMix is often used with Apache ActiveMQ, Apache Camel and Apache CXF in SOA infrastructure projects.

Enterprise support for ServiceMix is available from independent vendors including the FUSE group at Progress Software. The FUSE team offers an enterprise version of ServiceMix called FUSE ESB that is tested, certified and supported.

Characteristics of an ESB include:

  • Federation, clustering and container provided failover
  • Hot deployment and lifecycle management of business objects
  • True vendor independence by license compliance with the JBI specification

It was made an official Apache project by the ASF Board of Directors on September 19, 2007[1].
