After carrying out a number of benchmarks, Microsoft concluded that .NET offers better performance and cost-performance ratio than WebSphere. IBM rebutted Microsoft’s findings and carried out other tests proving that WebSphere is superior to .NET. Microsoft responded by rejecting some of IBM’s claims as false and repeating the tests on different hardware with different results.
Boris Lublinsky discusses task management in the jBPM and then demonstrates how to implement four advanced user interaction patterns(4-eyes principle, nomination, escalation, and chained execution) using JBoss and the jBPM. He also notes the advantages and limitations of these patterns.
Orchestrating activities that extend over very long periods (hours, days, weeks) is a common design issue. Although technically BPM engines are specifically design to ideal with this issue, they do so with standalone processes with corresponding issues arising from callback mechanisms. This article we will show one of the approaches to use JBoss jBPM for solving this problem.
In a new article Boris Lublinsky discusses how the JBoss middleware platform, specifically JBoss ESB and jBPM (JBoss Business Process Management) can be used for building composite service solutions. 1
Answering: What are the cloud computing benefits, public or private clouds, providing infrastructure or a platform, how can a client enforce regulatory compliance, and others.
In this article we look at how the open source JBossESB has been used to integrate legacy COBOL CICS applications without necessarily having to rely on XML and Web Services stacks. 4
In an exclusive InfoQ article, IBM's WebSphere CTO Jerry Cuomo outlines the 10 top technology direction he envisions for the WebSphere product line in 2009. 7
In this second part of their article, the authors explore the architecture of Dynamic Business Applications and how it impacts implementation productivity. 2
It is easy to think that virtualization applies only to servers. In reality the recent resurgence of the concept is also being applied to networking, storage, and application infrastructure. 5
OSWorkflow by Diego Adrian Naya Lazo discusses the open-source OSWorkflow, a Java-based workflow engine. InfoQ spoke with Naya Lazo about the areas the book covers and about OSWorkflow in general. 3
In most applications the out of the box web services in MOSS 2007 are adequate. Here developers will learn how to extend SharePoint web services and how to consume them from both Java and .NET. 27
