Okay, "governance" is an SOA buzzword, but bear with me here...
So let's say I'm building my service/business layer with Spring. And then I toss an integration layer on top of that and it's powered by Spring Integration. There would then be a "governance layer" on top of that, providing monitoring, policy enforcement, versioning, etc.
I'm curious then what the choices would be for the governance capabilities. I looked at Mule Galaxy, I'm guessing it would be a fit. Maybe AquaLogic is, but of course it's very difficult to find out how AL actually works without sifting through countless PDF files and Gartner reports on the BEA website. My guess is that most products that offer governance features also provide integration features, and the two sets aren't inseparable. Galaxy seems different though, at least by the fact that it has first-class support for Spring configurations.
Just wondering if anyone has explored this yet...

Check out WebLayers- they do a great job at design time governance and give you a slew of assertions which one can use to validate code checks
