Welcome to the Apache Tuscany project! The Tuscany community is working to create a robust and easy to use infrastructure that simplifies the development of service-based application networks and addresses real business problems posed in SOA.

Tuscany is based on specifications defined by the OASIS Open CSAMember Section and the Open SOACollaboration:

  • Service Component Architecture (SCA) - An essential characteristic of SOA is the ability to assemble new and existing services to create brand new applications that may consist of different technologies. Service Component Architecture defines a simple, service-based model for construction, assembly and deployment of a network of services (existing and new ones) that are defined in a language-neutral way. Tuscany implements the SCA Version 1.0specifications. Learn more about SCA
  • Service Data Objects (SDO) provides a uniform interface for handling different forms of data, including XML documents, that can exist in a network of services and provides the mechanism for tracking changes. Tuscany implements the SDO Version 2.1specifications. Learn more about SDO
  • Data Access Service (DAS) provides a simple SDO interface to relational databases. Learn more about DAS

The above mentioned technologies provide a full infrastructure for developing and running SOA based applications. They are not dependent on one another and can be used independently.

Please join us to create a simple, practical, extensible SOA infrastructure to address the problems that large-scale applications and service networks are faced with. We look forward to your participation.


Copyright © 2006, The Apache Software Foundation Apache Tuscany is undergoing incubation at The Apache Software Foundation (ASF), sponsored by the Web Services PMC. Incubation is required of all newly accepted projects until a further review indicates that the infrastructure, communications, and decision making process have stabilized in a manner consistent with other successful ASF projects. While incubation status is not necessarily a reflection of the completeness or stability of the code, it does indicate that the project has yet to be fully endorsed by the ASF.
