Subject: JetBlue Builds Web Services Architecture with SOA Software's Service Manager

JetBlue Builds Web Services Architecture with SOA Software's Service

Airline Using Innovative SOA Management and Security Solution 
to Create Web Services and Connect with Partners

SANTA MONICA, Calif.-August 8, 2005-SOA Software, the leading provider
of comprehensive SOA and Web services management, security and
governance solutions, today announced that JetBlue Airways(r) (Nasdaq:
JBLU) has selected Service Manager(tm) to create, secure, monitor and
manage its Web services architecture.  Widely deployed in Fortune 500
and large global organizations, Service Manager will enable JetBlue to
expose numerous Microsoft .NET(tm) Web services for internal and
external partner consumption.   

"We are very excited to be working with JetBlue," said Eric Pulier,
founder and executive chairman of SOA Software.   "As companies like
JetBlue begin to rely on Web services, they face the challenge of
building scaleable and reusable networks. Service Manager is designed to
secure and manage enterprise-class SOA implementations today, while
being flexible enough to meet the IT environment of tomorrow."

JetBlue, based in New York, adopted Web services and a service-oriented
architecture to help the company meet growing demand for its low-cost,
high-quality air services.  However, migration to this architecture was
not without its challenges.  Jet Blue quickly realized that not only did
it have to secure, manage and monitor its own Web services, but it
needed an infrastructure that could support its partners' needs as well.
JetBlue also wanted to migrate to a service-oriented approach quickly,
while working with as few IT vendors as possible.

To meet its needs, JetBlue relied on Microsoft's .NET platform, BizTalk
Server(r), and SQL Server.  SOA Software's Service Manager was deployed
by JetBlue to provide the critical mediation layer needed to secure and
manage Web service transactions occurring across the company's network.
The goal was to provide Web services that were easy to use, yet fully
governed to meet JetBlue's policy requirements.

"After reviewing all the key players in the market including Systinet,
AmberPoint, Actional and Reactivity, we found that SOA Software's
Service Manager was the best solution on the market to address our
requirements," said Tyrone Paige, senior software architect at JetBlue.
"We placed a lot of emphasis on security, service level agreements and
governance. Getting the broad range of features we need from one vendor
simplifies our deployment today, and SOA Software's ongoing commitment
to innovation will help JetBlue maintain its competitive edge in the
years to come."
