I have a bit experience in Glassfish ESB , as i got brief stint in my last company to work on it. I would like to know how popular is it for SOA implementation.
Is it being used in the current market place. Is anyone using it in their current project...

Will adding it to my resume give me an edge....

If Glassfish ESB is not that popular then which is the current popular ESB Tools in the marketplace these days.

Not sure of many people implementing Glassfish ESB. This is purely speculation, but given the announcement last week by Oracle that they would no longer be supporting Glassfish 4 going forward, I would suspect the same to happen with this product.

Its always good to add niche products to your resume in a way that captures how you learned the patterns and can apply to various other ESBs. ESBs are still a niche product in my opinion.

Thanks for your response. What exactly you mean by it that the market for ESB is not that big ...not many takers for ESB ??

Although i did worked on Glassfish ESB and i have fair knowledge on ESB but when i tried to self learn Oracle Service bus , there was hardly any similarity between Glassfish ESB and oracle service bus.

There was no concept of Service Engine and Binding component in OSB. So Learning Glassfish ESB didnt gave me any advantage while learning other ESB products. The only benefit i see was that i understood the general SOA based architecture a little better. And i liked the term - Web service Orchestration used by Glassfish.

I agree. Here's the link:
