j2ee datasource  J2EE and .NET Environments Before You Choose Introduction The latest Java 2 Enterprise Edition ( J2EE ) compliant technologies, represent a platform-independent, Java-centric environment originally developed by Sun Microsystems for developing, building, and deploying web-based enterprise applications on-line. The typical J2EE platform consists of a set of services, application programming interfaces (APIs), and protocols that provide the functionality for developing multitiered, Web-based

Comparing the Total Cost of Ownership of Business Intelligence Solutions


For many companies, traditional business intelligence (BI) software is costly and resource-intensive. So are open source alternatives that require significant configuration and integration. In contrast, software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions can reduce the cost of a BI deployment by providing automation and pre-integration. Compare total cost of ownership (TCO) for traditional, open source, and SaaS BI solutions.

There are five core projects along with links to 205 additional projects that each require varying degrees of technical developer skills to integrate. As a result, companies employing these technologies will need to invest more in integration when using Open Source Read More

The Application Server War Escalates


At JavaOne in San Francisco, a battle ensued between BEA Systems CEO Bill Coleman, and Oracle CEO Larry Ellison. In a truly ugly display of how contentious the application server market has become, they argued over whose product was better, faster, cheaper. The keynote was so rife with charges and countercharges that they had to hold an after-keynote press conference to explain themselves.

His presentation was 85% Java is so cool and 15% BEA rules . He discussed the concept that businesses have to be adaptive and fast , and that BEA is the de facto standard product for these types of implementations. After Coleman spoke, things got interesting. Mr. Ellison took the stage and spent the majority of his time shooting directly at BEA, complete with charts an Read More

Federal Contract Management and Vendors' Readiness Part Three: Meeting Federal Requirements


Companies that are not already offering the capabilities of meeting the exacting, stringent requirements of federal agencies will likely not be able to tap the recent surge in the federal and defense markets. Conversely, those vendors and their users--government contractors--who can deliver comprehensive solutions that satisfy the requirements of federal agencies are in the driver's seat to capture that market segment.

At the same time, the need to technologically modernize the product and concurrently provide smooth migrations to existing customers, while investing lots of research and development (R&D) funds in functional enhancements as to be ahead (or at least abreast) of the pack will be a significant challenge for a smaller vendor. Further, the broader enterprise asset management (EAM) and computerized maintenance management systems (CMMS) applications continue to grab Read More

New Vendor Acquisition Strategies in the Enterprise Applications Field


The latest acquisitions of SSA Global indicate a new phase in the vendor's acquisition strategy and development cycle, and are furthering its goal to be number three (after SAP and Oracle) in the world of enterprise resource planning vendors.

j2ee datasource  Epiphany has long leveraged J2EE - and SOA-based technologies to rewrite its products, SSA Open Architecture explored in Part Two of this series remains in part a statement of direction, since many of its products will need much retooling to conform to the SOA vision (although fewer will need retooling as of the third release of the product in the spring of 2006). The vendor will need developers experienced in these technologies, and by buying Epiphany, it has acquired a development organization which is 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.

j2ee datasource  For information on the J2EE and .NET environments and their subtle differences, see Understand J2EE And .NET Environments Before You Choose . Quite pertinent to the above, a well-publicized concept of service oriented architectures (SOA) should help developers further down the path of software componentization. The closer one can make the software map to the business processes and adapt over time, the better the applications will support business objectives (i.e., with an underlying agility).
