(pronounced "whiz-bang") - the Web services
broker and network gateway, is a Web services proxy.
It plugs right into your network and provides caching, monitoring,
metering, micropayment tracking, reporting, and security and encryption.
Administrators set policy centrally and enforce it consistently across the
intercepts and enables you to transform and enrich SOAP

You can even syndicate applications and control presentation via XSL
Systems managers will be glad to know that WSBANG is SNMP-compliant, so it

Its open architecture which allows you to easily “plug in”
value-added services such as IBM MQ Series, custom
developed java classes, etc.
