Welcome to Apache ServiceMix 4
==============================
-Apache ServiceMix is an open source ESB (Enterprise Service Bus) that combines
-the functionality of a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) and an Event Driven
-Architecture (EDA) to create an agile, enterprise ESB.
-
-Apache ServiceMix is an open source distributed ESB built from the ground up on
-the Java Business Integration (JBI) specification JSR 208 and released under
-the Apache license. The goal of JBI is to allow components and services to be
-integrated in a vendor independent way, allowing users and vendors to plug and
-play.
+Apache ServiceMix is a flexible, open-source integration container that unifies
+the features and functionality of Apache ActiveMQ, Camel, CXF, and Karaf
+into a powerful runtime platform you can use to build your own integrations solutions.
+It provides a complete, enterprise ready ESB exclusively powered by OSGi.
+
+It is being released under Apache License.
+
+The main features are:
+- reliable messaging with Apache ActiveMQ
+- messaging, routing and Enterprise Integration Patterns with Apache Camel
+- WS-* and RESTful web services with Apache CXF
+- OSGi-based server runtime powered by Apache Karaf
+
+Other, optional features:
+- loosely coupled integration between all the other components with
+ Apache ServiceMix NMR including rich Event, Messaging and Audit API
+- JBI (JSR-208) container implementation and a set of JBI components
+
