He's been doing it again. Blogging, that is. And, as usual, Sun's president
and COO zeroes in on the main issue that makes the software industry the
endlessly fascinating place it is, anno 2004, namely the choice between
proprietary and open source solutions.
It's not an either/or choice, Schwartz contends, and refers to a surprising
moment that happened at Sun's JavaOne developer conference earlier this year.
"A bunch of friends joined us for a discussion on the open sourcing of Java,"
writes Schwartz in the latest entry in his widely-read blog: "Among the
luminaries present was Brian Behlendorf, who opened his statements by asking
what I'm sure he felt was a question with a popular answer, 'How many of you
work on an open source project?' I expected to see a flurry of hands, and I'm
sure he did, too. Neither of us saw hands go up."
Schwartz cites this as just one ex... (more)

Enterprise mashups, one of the hottest Web 2.0 technologies today, could
impact your SOA in a very positive way. But are you ready for them? How does
an SOA architect prepare for this dynamic technology?
Do you know what a mashup is and what value it brings to an enterprise? Can
you distinguish between a consumer mashup and an enterprise mashup? Equally
important, do you understand the difference between a mashup and popular
enterprise technologies like business intelligence, data warehouses, portals,
and the Enterprise Service Bus?
Mashups are not exactly new. Analysts and pundits alike have been talking
about "composite applications" since the birth of the Internet. Today there
are thousands of consumer-focused mashups. One popular mashup site,
Programmable Web, reports that three new mashups have been registered every
single day for the last two years.

XML Schemas provide the grammar and constraints of XML documents. Given the
increasing prevalence of XML as a data and command transport format in
enterprise software systems across industries, it's important to have a
methodology when designing the structure of the XML you will create.
In this article, I will discuss how to leverage established object-oriented
frameworks to design XML Schemas. The three tenets of object-oriented design
- encapsulation, inheritance, and polymorphism - are examined along with
emerging design patterns and when to apply them. Since industry consortia are
creating industry XML standards, I will also discuss how to use and extend
standards for your business needs. Finally, there is a brief overview of how
to use Unified Modeling Language (UML) to follow the best practices described
in this article.

What do you do if suddenly your application has to be used in another
country, or even in different areas of the same nation? English and French
are spoken in Canada; Italian, French, and German are spoken in Italy; and
Switzerland has four official languages.
These days, service requirements dictate that software has to speak the
language of the end user, who may even be a member of one of the growing
ethnic minority groups.
As a PowerBuilder developer, you can now use Enable to make your applications
multilingual. This solution allows you to maintain complete control over your
executable at runtime, and without any duplication of the source code. End
users and technical support personnel alike may well benefit from your
application's new ability to change the active language dynamically.
Enable, which tackles the technical and practical barriers to the development ... (more)

When there are lots of solutions, choosing the right products to build your
software is really challenging. Identifying the right combination of
middleware products to build your SOA is key to its success. This article
discusses an approach to using non-functional requirements in choosing these
products, using SOA in health care as an example.
Software applications that are fragmented across departments, legacy systems
that cannot be retired, and integration challenges due to heterogeneity are
no exception in the health care industry. Business processes and
sophisticated medical data that go from physicians and hospitals to health
plans to pharmaceutical companies to insurance companies make the
implementation of IT solutions highly challenging. Service-oriented
architecture (SOA) has been identified as a perfect way to meet these
challenges and many companies in t... (more)
