Holodeck B2B 2.1 now available

By | News | No Comments

Today we’ve released a large update for our popular open source AS4 messaging software, Holodeck B2B 2.1. We’ve added some important new functionality, fixed several bugs and made some general code improvements.

New features

The most important new features of Holodeck B2B 2.1 are:

    • Multi-hop messaging, where a message passes through multiple intermediaries to reach it’s destination but still maintains end-to-end security
    • Messages without attachments sent as single part messages and not SOAP with attachments
    • Trust store to hold the certificates of trusted Certificate Authorities
    • Event framework to enable additional notification to external components
    • Automatic message purging cleans up all meta data (including payload data for User Messages) after a configurable number of days
    • Flexible configuration of pulling, giving the option to build your own policies
    • All received ebMS error signals are logged, even if they can’t be processed or are not for Holodeck B2B

e-SENS and EESSI compliant

Holodeck B2B 2.1 is again fully AS4, ENTSOG and e-SENS compliant, having passed the eSENS compliancy test. And with the introduction of Multi-hop messaging, it now also EESSI compliant. It has been interoperability tested with various other AS4 open source and commercial products including .Net implementations.

By | News | No Comments

Big news – we’re out of beta!

The completely rewritten Holodeck B2B 2.0 has full support for all AS4 features, including

  • One-Way/Push and One-Way/Pull message exchange patterns
  • AS4 Compression feature
  • Message delivery configuration in P-Mode with support for specific delivery options for receipt and errors
  • Option to include refToMessageId in a user message to enable easy reference of related messages
  • Generic P-Modes. Only define the parameters common to a set of messages in the P-Mode and supply the remaining details when the message is sent
  • Message authorization
  • Non-repudiation of receipt
  • Multiple submitters
  • Multiple receivers
  • Signing and encrypting the message using WS-Security
  • Large messages

and also offers improved logging and lots of documentation, both in the code and online.
Holodeck is fast, light weight, stand-alone and as it is Java based it runs on most platforms.

Interfaces for easy extensibility

To improve extensiblity, Holodeck B2B has been split into 2 parts: Core and Interfaces, both with their own license. Core code is GPLv3 but the Interfaces are LGPLv3, making it possible to connect Holodeck to your own system, even if that is not open-source software.

Versatile and fully AS4 and e-SENS compliant

Holodeck B2B 2.0 is not only fully AS4 compliant, it has also passed the e-SENS conformance and interoperability tests. It can be used as the e-Delivery building block in e-SENS, in CEF projects and any project using the ENTSOG / e-SENS AS4 profile. As Holodeck B2B has full support for AS4 it can also be used for STP and Superstream gateways.
