Toronto, Canada - February 07, 2006 - Semantion is pleased to announce the general availability of Semantion Registry and Repository version 2.5 that provides complete support for Federated Enterprise Reference Architecture (FERA)-based SOA Registry components: Federation Registry and Process Flow Registry. FERA-based SOA is a reference architecture that Semantion contributed to OASIS ebSOA Technical Committee and is used as a framework for SOA specifications being developed by ebSOA TC. Based on ebXML Registry standard, Semantion Registry is an open standard-based registry that provides complete support for SOA Information Model (SOA IM), one of FERA-based SOA specifications.

"With the development of FERA-based SOA platform, Semantion continues with its leading role in the implementation of open standard-based software. Semantion provided one of the first implementations of ebXML Registry standard specifications, along with the first multi-tier component based registry and repository back in 2001. The core of our FERA-based SOA architectural solution is SOA Information Model and SOA Collaboration Semantics that enable semantic-based integration of all architectural components in FERA-based SOA and provide a complete support for collaborative processes," said Goran Zugic, Chief Architect and co-founder of Semantion.
