Project description


This package provides tools to monitor and administer Xbus <>.

The monitor serves a REST API; it also includes a backbone.js client app:


Xbus is an Enterprise service bus. As such it aims to help IT departments achieve a better application infrastructure layout by providing a way to urbanize the IT systems.

The goals of urbanization are:

  • high coherence
  • low coupling
