Fabric3 takes a fresh approach to integration. Instead of introducing a complex, costly, and ineffcient Enterprise Service Bus architecture, Fabric3 enables developers to connect services by wiring them together, as if they were part of a circuit board.
Fabric3 also avoids the lock-in of proprietary vendor solutions. Built on the Service Component Architecture standard (SCA), Fabric3 runs standalone, on Apache Tomcat, or on a Java EE application server, providing full application portability.
