Focusing on providing tools to build e-business infrastructures, Commerce One Inc. announced on Monday that it has selected Progress Software's SonicMQ E-Business Messaging Server for use with the Commerce One MarketSite Portal solution.
SonicMQ is messaging software for the transport and exchange of data over the Internet, and is based on the Java Message Service (JMS) specification, which provides a common set of interfaces, messaging concepts, and programming strategies. As the underlying messaging infrastructure, SonicMQ provides a transport for the exchange of information over the Internet, from XML-based purchase orders to CAD files.
Pleasanton, Calif.-based Commerce One's MarketSite Portal Solution allows customers to build electronic marketplaces and link them to the Commerce One Global Trading Web. The products and services enable real-time, interactive transactions between trading partners, suppliers, and market makers.
"We needed to have the ability to add in trading partners at a pretty quick clip," said Tom McCleary, Commerce One's senior director of business development.
As new trading partners or communities are added to Commerce One's MarketSite, SonicMQ discovers new destinations without requiring local configuration or application changes. Through the use of SonicMQ and an XML-based transaction infrastructure, business services such as auctions, content management, payment services, and logistics can be deployed to e-marketplaces.
Additionally, Progress, of Bedford, Mass., announced version 3.0 of SonicMQ on Monday. The new version includes Dynamic Routing Architecture, which provides the ability to add business partners running SonicMQ, and Multi-Domain Routing, enabling a message to span more than one domain, such as another enterprise or trading exchange. SonicMQ 3.0 also provides secure communication through both channel and message payload encryption, and digital certificate identity management and certificate generation.
