  • Silverlight and Java Interoperability

    Robert Bell, Microsoft, introduces interoperability scenarios for using Silverlight from Java and provides architectural guidance using sample code snippets.

  • Using Java to Crack Office 2007

    Office file manipulation used to be difficult, but since Office 2007, Word, Excel and Powerpoint files can be read and written without anything more complicated than the native JDK itself because Office 2007 documents are now nothing more than ZIP files of XML documents. Ted Neward demonstrates this in action.

  • Case Study: Composite Applications at Safeco

    A case study about how motor vehicle insurance records company Safeco used SOA approahes, SCA, BPEL, and composite application approaches to reuse legacy code, enable runtime modifiability thanks to decoupling, Java and .NET interoperability, and the ability to deliver a complex solution integrating over 5 systems in less than 8 weeks with a small team.

  • Case study: A new approach to integrating architectures post-merger at Lawson

    The merger of Lawson and Intentia in 2006 left developers with an important problem to solve - the integration and presentation of legacy applications and business services that are constructed in Java, .NET, and other technologies. This case study looks under the hood at the new architecture at Lawson and how they got there.

  • Making Sense of all these Crazy Web Service Standards

    Michele Leroux Bustamante explains the most relevant WS-* standards used today in terms of their actual implementation among WS platforms (with a focus on Java and .NET), their level of adoption and readiness. If you are new to web services or to the WS* protocols, or you are having difficulty keeping up with the pace of change in this area, this article should help.

  • Rich Office Client Applications

    There is a client platform that's already present on nearly every user's desktop, one which provides an amazing amount of power and flexibility in its user interface options, and provides a familiar user-interactive style that undergoes intensive study with every release. Ted Neward introduces the Microsoft Office platform as a rich client technology with examples of Excel - Java integration.

  • Messaging Interop with JMS & Spring.NET

    Message oriented middleware has long been a popular choice to integrate diverse platforms. Using MOM as a basis for communication between .NET and Java this article demonstrates interoperability between a .NET client and a Java middle tier using the JMS support in the Spring framework, available for .NET as well as Java, to provide a common programming model across both tiers of the application.

  • In-process Interoperability

    The two most popular managed environments (the JVM and the CLR) are in fact, nothing more than a set of shared libraries, each providing services to executing code such as memory management, thread management, code compilation (JIT), etc. Using both the JVM and the CLR inside the same operating system process is easy, since any process is capable of loading just about any shared library.

  • WPF as a Rich Client Technology

    WPF makes it easy to create visually impressive app, but WPF also has other talents which make it a compelling choice as a rich client over back-end services written in any technology such as Java, Ruby, or .NET. This article compares WPF to alternatives such as Ajax/DHTML, Swing, and Flash; it will also look at some scenarios where a WPF client makes sense, using Java as the back-end example.

  • Casestudy: IP Telephony Integration

    This case study takes at Litescape's IP telephone integration solution, from requirements through an architectural overview of their Java and .NET implementation, and then zooming in some interesting technical aspects of their project including phone integration with WebEx/LiveMeeting, integration between Java/.NET interop, HTTP vs. IPC communication between systems installed on the same machine.

  • Java, .NET, But Why Together?

    The Java vs. NET war is over. In this article, Ted Neward looks at how we can leverage the strengths of each together, such as using Microsoft Office to act as a "rich client" to a Java middle-tier service, or building a Windows Presentation Foundation GUI on top of Java POJOs, or even how to execute Java Enterprise/J2EE functionality from within a Windows Workflow host.

  • Simple JAVA and .NET SOA interoperability

    .NET and Java interop can be made really simple using a REST documentcentric approach. This article compares a REST and SOAP approach to interop as well as the advantages of using HTTP POST vs. GET for REST invocations.
