TECH-D09 Web Application Bridge: “No Coding” Integration Style for External Web Applications in WebSphere Portal
Jason Cornell, Product Manager, IBM Samit Narula, Software Engineer, IBM
Customers want to use the benefit and capabilities that WebSphere Portal provides to create the best web experience for internal and external users. However, at times, the effort and risk of a rip-and-replace kind of approach are considered insurmountable and daunting, and customers are wary of the initial cost and time. What IBM Web Application Bridge does is provide an approach that allows a gradual evolution of an enterprise’s web strategy and provides enough flexibility to modify the approach based on usage and experience.
This session will feature new features capabilities, patterns and scenarios of usage, as well as a rerun of the existing capabilities that has made Web Application Bridge so popular since its first release. The presenters will put together their knowledge of how WAB is being looked at and used by different customers since its release for the attendees. The session will also provide recommendations on the enterprise view of the co-existence of WebSphere Portal and Sharepoint which includes standard enterprise architectural patterns, a user interface strategy and a consistent development pattern and guidance for look and feel.
Learn about the architecture of Portal, ESB, FileNet, Sharepoint integration, look at the different uses of Portal and Sharepoint integration and Exchange and Lync integration and compare the pros and cons of different integration approaches. (Level: Introductory)
