Apache Tuscany SCA Java 2.0-Beta2 released

The Apache Tuscany team is pleased to announce the 2.0-Beta2 release of the Java SCA 2.0 project.
Apache Tuscany/SCA provides a runtime environment based on Service Component Architecture (SCA), which is a set of OASIS specifications aimed at simplifying SOA application development.
This is the second beta release on our way to a full 2.0 release. It contains improvements on a number of modules, dependency upgrades and continues the effort of module reorganization started with the Beta1 release. New features include an interactive shell to work with SCA domains, contributions and services.
See the RELEASE_NOTES and CHANGES file for more details about the release, and to download the distributions please go to:

Tuscany SCA in Action is now printed

Tuscany SCA is a technology-neutral infrastructure for building composite applications based on the Service Component Architecture standard. It manages the protocols and other application plumbing, enabling you to focus on business logic and the relationship between services. The resulting applications are more flexible, scalable, and maintainable.

Tuscany SCA in Action is a comprehensive, hands-on guide for developing technology-agnostic, extensible applications. By following a travel-booking example throughout the book, you'll learn how to model, compose, deploy, and manage applications using SCA. The book emphasizes practical concerns, like effectively using Tuscany’s supported bindings and protocols and integrating with standard technologies like Spring and JMS to save development time and cost.


  • Introduction to Tuscany
  • Coverage of Service Component Architecture
  • Practical examples and techniques
  • Written by core Tuscany committers

This book is for developers interested in service-oriented applications. No experience with Tuscany or SCA is required.

About the Authors

Simon Laws is a member of the IBM Open Source SOA project focused on building the Java runtime for Service Component Architecture (SCA). Coauthors Mark Combellack, Raymond Feng, Haleh Mahbod, and Simon Nash are all Tuscany committers.
