Mercury, which makes a suite of tools for testing and monitoring business applications, said the acquisition of Systinet will better position the company in the emerging market for service-oriented architecture infrastructure and tools. SOA is a way to design computing systems so that individual programs can be reused and combined with other applications. A service that provides access to customer data can be written once and used in several different applications. Systinet provides a dedicated server, called a registry, for keeping track of a company's catalog of services enabling the administrators to attach policies, such as access rights, on how services can be used. Some may tend to look at Systinet being close to an infrastructural utility. Traditionally seen as close to BEA – this acquisition by the beleaguered Mercury looks a little surprising. May be they wanted to be equidistant with Oracle as well or perhaps Mercury offered the best deal. Systinet products enable, publish, discover and manage SOA business services, and make it easy to build secure and reliable Web services with Java and C++ applications. Systinet products are centered on industry standards such as XML, SOAP, WSDL and UDDI.
