WebSphere Process Server and ESB 6.1 Available

The 6.1 versions WebSphere Process Server, Enterprise Service Bus, and Integration Developer are available for download from passport advantage. I personally have used the 6.1 version for both our internal SOA benchmarks and a recent ESB project. I can attest for major functional improvements -- I wouldn't use anything less than 6.1 for ESB projects. Also, since this moved the underlying application server to WebSphere Application Server 6.1 and Java 1.5, there are some major performance improvements in this release. Oh, and WebSphere Integration Developer is now based on Eclipse 3.2.2 which enables far more of my eclipse plugins to work along with Integration Developer.
