The Art Of Distributed Development Of Multi-Lingual Three-Tier Internet Applications


In this article we describe author's experience with the distributed development of multi-lingual three-tier Java/ CORBA/database Internet applications. We believe that the described tips and tricks of trade may be of great use to readers who are involved with Java applications development.

iona corba  CORBA application server is IONA OrbixWeb . CORBA clients use an internally developed API (Application Programming Interface) and wrapper Java classes developed on top of OrbixWeb. The challenge in this project was to develop software in a distributed fashion without any physical presence at the production site, while still adhering to the very strict bank's security rules. First, per the bank's development protocol, software developers do not have direct physical access to the production system. Read More

The SOAP Opera Progresses - Helping XML to Rule the World


An important emerging standard in the web arena, known as SOAP (Simple Object Access Protocol), originally developed by Microsoft, has achieved a new milestone. Since IBM joined in support for the SOAP standard with increased security, SOAP may replace DCOM, and possibly even CORBA eventually. The W3C consortium has just released a new version, 1.2, which will be widely accepted and adopted by vendors.

Will Glovia Glow Again Through Its Hub And VARs?


While Glovia continues its revamping as a holistic B2B e-business provider for manufacturers and service companies beyond core ERP, its ongoing management reshuffling, its fledgling channel and traction for multiple products will be challenges to be tamed.

What's Wrong With Enterprise Applications, And What Are Vendors Doing About It? Part Two: A New Framework Strategy


Building replacement products on a new framework is a higher risk strategy. The product functionality still quite matters and, while it is important for enterprise applications providers to implement the latest computer science 'quantum leap', there is no guaranteed correlation between first-to-market and the ultimate success in the market (in fact, based on many experiences, one could even argue that the correlation might be inverse).

iona corba  The intent of these visionary or brave vendors is to address the four issues discussed above while maintaining or improving their functionality although some may contend that their moves have been virtue made out of necessity. Examples of vendors who have taken this road would include PeopleSoft and IFS . In both cases, products have been delivered and implemented, and, therefore, their strategy has been proven in the marketplace. Particularly impressive would be IFS, both in terms of strong vertical Read More

Understanding SOA, Web Services, BPM, BPEL, and More Part One: SOA, Web Services, and BPM


In the larger schema of things, SOA would espouse general, more abstract concepts of software reusability and encapsulation within certain boundaries (as to then provide access to that software via defined interfaces), Web services would then make these SOA concepts vendor-independent due to their use of generally accepted standards, while BPM and BPEL would be some of the engines making the whole system work.

Fujitsu Poised to (Inter)Stage Glovia's Comeback Part One: Event Summary


Glovia continues to provide astute solutions for manufacturers and service companies well beyond core ERP. Although, bundled with Fujitsu's Interstage infrastructure platform, low brand recognition outside Japan and nascent channel and traction for multiple products within the Fujitsu products' family will remain hurdles it must surmount. However, through a new partnership with Fujitsu Software Corporation and the backing of a resplendent and committed company, Fujitsu Limited, Glovia is now poised for a noticeable return.

iona corba  Summary Event Summary Glovia International whose capabilities seem to be far greater than its recognition in the global enterprise applications market (largely due to a number of ownership and name changes throughout its history) seems to have finally gotten its ducks in a row, and is now poised for a noticeable return, backed up by a resplendent and committed parent company. In October 2003, a leading provider of extended ERP solutions for engineer-to-order (ETO) and high volume manufacturers, Glovia Read More

Architecture Evolution: From Web-based to Service-oriented Architecture


Traditional enterprise systems have proven difficult to change and extend. The inherent problem of old core code and business logic duplication is part of the reason traditional enterprise resource planning systems have not readily taken to e-commerce.

Barricaded behind complex, proprietary application programming interfaces (APIs), and based on complex, nearly indecipherable relational database schemas, traditional ERP systems did not readily take to e-commerce. Thus, transport and communication technologies like Web services, message brokers and queues, electronic data interchange (EDI), and XML get all the attention of late, but the Read More

SOA as a Foundation for Applications and Infrastructure


SOA promises interoperability in the heterogeneous business world by promoting loosely-coupled architecture, reusing software, and ending vendor-dependency. However, to be viable, dominant vendors must redesign and expose the hundreds of application functions as services. How are they meeting this challenge?

(For more information, on SAP and Oracle, see SAP Bolsters NetWeaver's MDM Capabilities and Oracle Further Orchestrates Its SOA Forays ) SOA has the promise of interoperability in an increasingly global and heterogeneous business world by promoting loosely-coupled architecture and the non-intrusive reuse of software components. Such a move should do away with user dependency on vendors for enterprise applications and also Read More

Service-oriented Architecture-Savior or Nemesis?


Managed well, service-oriented architecture (SOA) offers a tremendous opportunity to make positive changes and lay a foundation that will allow IT to become responsive and cost-effective. But SOA is also a potential minefield: hype is raising expectations beyond reality in an environment that is already stressed. In fact, managed poorly, SOA can be an expensive and spectacular failure.

Many organizations’ ‘lights on’ costs now consume more than half of their IT budgets. Some are in a death spiral where their lights on costs are so high that they no longer have enough free IT budget to make any significant changes or investments. All they can afford now are band-aid solutions, which, of course, increase the Read More

Where Is ERP Headed (Or Better, Where Should It Be Headed)? Part 2: Product Architecture and Web-Basing


This note discusses how a flexible and agile ERP system needs an adaptable architecture, how easy integration to 3rd-party applications has become a key selling point for ERP vendors, and how extending ERP to the Internet stems from the intent of many IT organizations not to reinvent the wheel in their scramble to create e-commerce applications.
