"Working with composite applications no longer has to be time consuming and difficult," said Ken Bisconti (pictured), vice president, IBM Workplace, Portal and Collaboration Products. "In WebSphere Portal Version 6.0 we are introducing a new application framework which empowers customers to easily assemble applications and process components in the way that best meets their needs."
The latest version of WebSphere Portal, which IBM expects to have available for Linux, AIX, HP, Microsoft Windows, i5OS and Sun in the third quarter this year, ncludes a workflow builder, enabling business process owners to create and modify departmental workflows to meet their needs. Users see only the tasks assigned to them along with relevant information from across the company.
WebSphere Portal Version 6.0 will integrate with the advanced electronic forms capabilities of IBM Workplace Forms. Electronic forms are presented in a standard portal interface, enabling users to easily access information from other applications and collaborate to create, edit, or view electronic forms. Once completed, the e-form can be automatically routed to the next person in the process or stored in a repository, according to IBM.
The latest version of WebSphere Portal also includes IBM Workplace Web Content Management Version 6.0, which aims to simplify the creation process with enhanced rich text editors, and inline authoring capability. For administrators, enhancements include a joint administrator's console for WebSphere Portal and Workplace Web Content Management, template customization, and support for Cascading Style Sheets.
IBM says it is now closely aligning WebSphere Portal with WebSphere Portlet Factory. Obtained from its December 2005 acquisition of Bowstreet, WebSphere Portlet Factory is a comprehensive portlet development environment that automates the process of creating, deploying, and maintaining SOA-based portlets.
With WebSphere Portlet Factory, developers can quickly draw on their company's existing applications to create portlets that become the building blocks for composite applications. Once composite applications are created, WebSphere Portal Version 6.0 enables users to save them as templates. As templates, composite applications can be deployed as is, or customized for different groups while maintaining the integrity of the application. In addition, if business conditions change users can quickly modify the template to reflect the new conditions.

Important is Interoperability: composite applications need to be able to run on multiple Portals by multiple Vendors (Oracle, SAP, Bea, etc.)
Thanks for the article.
