WebSphere Application Server Enterprise V5: Building, Deploying, and Managing On-Demand Applications (EX)
IBM has recently introduced the latest version of its flagship application server product -- WebSphere Application Server Enterprise V5. With this release, IBM has significantly strengthened the product's capabilities in support of a Services-Oriented Architecture (SOA) that begins to deliver on the vision of on-demand applications. As companies begin to use web services as a means of delivering application functionality to all the communities with which an organization works, and as the integration of business processes within and outside of an organization increasingly becomes the means of delivering services and achieving interoperability, new tool capabilities and enhanced deployment environments will be required to support the efforts of developers to help their companies stay competitive.
