Unlock the Promise of
Web Services and
applications using standard components and Web services can yield
substantial business benefits. Yet existing technology for
connecting these components together increases integration
challenges, resulting in "glue code" that is more
complex than the components and services being integrated. Is it
any surprise that integration is the riskiest part of application
AppComposer™ brings visual authoring development to
standards-based Web service and component architectures, solving
integration problems and delivering the business advantages of
components and services. With AppComposer, not only are components
reusable, but so are the smart behaviors - the glue code used
by AppComposer to connect components together.
technologies are based on scripting languages like Visual Basic.
While providing fast interactive application assembly, these
solutions introduce their own reliability and performance issues.
AppComposer is the only solution that provides all the advantages
of scripting languages with none of the disadvantages. You can edit
live applications while they are running, and avoid tedious edit /
compile / deploy cycles - and yet the resulting applications
are 100% Java.
beyond existing integration solutions - even those provided
by scripting solutions like Visual Basic - with powerful, but
simple to use, advanced features like behaviors, used to
write glue code like Java classes are used to write components, and
capsules, used to control the complexity of large
applications while promoting even greater reuse.
AppComposer™ enables your component reuse strategy through a
visual authoring and integration environment designed to accelerate
the assembly, modification, and deployment of enterprise
applications using EJB, JSP, servlet, and applet-based components.
It can be used by both Java and non-Java programmers to rapidly
build and modify server- and client-side enterprise
What's New For
Web Services Support - Rapidly
assemble Web Services applications. WSDL files can be imported and
componentized exposing the services for immediate consumption and
integration. AppComposer manages the details of SOAP protocol
handling and XML parsing, so you don't have
- EJB 2.0 Support
- Within AppComposer you can create and assemble the
following EJB 2.0 entities:
- Stateful session
- Stateless session
- Message driven
- Stateful session beans
Users are shielded from the complexity of creating and integrating
EJBs through AppComposer's visual authoring
Loading - Dynamically add components and begin using them
immediately. Adding a JAR file to the beans folder or importing an
EJB or Web Service will update the component palette, allowing you
to author with those new components.
