REAP Platform For AJAX and SOA

The Web 2.0 movement is traveling at astounding speed and AJAX and SOA are becoming key enablers

The Web 2.0 movement is traveling at astounding speed. The two big players, AJAX and SOA, are becoming key enablers for a new class of Web-based business applications. John will discuss the need for a new type of platform, called the Rich Enterprise Application Platform (REAP), capable of encompassing and supporting enterprise Web 2.0 applications. This new platform abstracts and leverages traditional middleware while providing key capabilities needed for Web-based applications. Some have even given this higher-level middleware the names "upperware" and "business application middleware." Whatever one calls it, it will change the way we design, develop and deploy Web-based business applications. Finally, John will also discuss the three pillars of REA-based systems and demonstrate the power of using a REAP to drive disruptive solutions such as portal-less portals.
