Microsoft to update AppFabric tool set

Joab Jackson, IDG News Service | May 18, 2011
Microsoft next month will release a set of new components to its Azure AppFabric suite of middleware cloud services that should make it easier for administrators to create and manage cloud applications.

Also necessary to this setup is a new set of .NET Framework extensions, called the Composition Model, which provides the means to describe and stitch together the components in an application.

During TechEd, Microsoft also announced that the company had released a new preview version of the AppFabric service bus as part of the May CTP. The version will allow connectivity through REST (Representational State Transfer) or HTTP APIs (application programming interfaces). Java and PHP-based applications, for instance, could communicate with AppFabric applications through these APIs.

The company expects to formally release AppFabric in 2012, though it has been releasing CTPs over the past few years to help IT professionals learn the new technology.
