SYSTEM NEWS FOR SUN USERS
Vol 64 Issue 4 2003-06-23 Article 10216 from section "Sun ONE"
Sun BluePrints[TM] OnLine Document
A 40-page Sun BluePrints[TM] OnLine article, "Using the Sun[TM] ONE
Application Server 7 to Enable Collaborative B2B Transactions,"
describes a design for a comprehensive Web Services application
architecture that enables businesses to publish, find and execute
collaborative B2B workflows with trading partners (the Sun ONE
Application Server was formerly known as the iPlanet[TM] Application
Server). The article is written by Michael Wheaton of Sun Professional
The article focuses on techniques businesses can use to capture their
offerings and capabilities in a declarative Web Services format and
decouple them from the rigid code bounds that exist in point-to-point
solutions. It describes the problems and requirements of today's B2B
solutions and describes how Web service specifications can help
architects design interoperable solutions. The document also examines a
prototype that implements these technologies.
It is written for professional systems engineers and system architects
who already understand Web Services technologies, including WS-I Basic
Profile, electronic business eXtended Markup Language (ebXML)
specifications and the Java[TM] Web Services Developer Pack (WSDP)
technologies. Experience in these areas is assumed for readers who wish
to implement the article's recommendations. Web Services background
information is available at the Sun Web site and other URLs listed in
the Related Resources section of the Sun BluePrints document.
