Iona acquired by Progress

Progress Software announced the acquisition of Iona.

This move continues to round out their SOA offerings by adding registry/repository, data services, message brokering and CORBA middleware. However, as others have pointed out, this leaves Progress with significant overlap in the ESB area. I'm confident that we'll be hearing from the Progress leadership on how they intend to resolve the redundancies that exist between Artix, FUSE, SOAPStation and SonicESB.

Naturally, here is the updated SOA Acquisition List.
