The goal of the Swordfish project is to provide an extensible SOA framework based on the proven Eclipse Equinox runtime technology. The framework is designed to be complemented by additional open source components such as a service registry, a messaging system, a process engine etc. to form a comprehensive open source SOA runtime environment based on both established and emerging open standards.
After a short introduction into SOA and the features that differentiate Swordfish from other open source SOA frameworks, I'm going to explain (and practically demonstrate) how software developers can use Swordfish to build service-oriented applications and how the Swordfish framework itself can be extended
