In the telecommunications industry there's a special phrase for that bit of technology that carries data from the last pole or relay box into the customer's home. It's called "the last mile" and it's often seen as one of the biggest challenges because this last step in the technology chain can be a considerable physical undertaking. In the IT industry we also have our "last mile": putting the right application in the hands of the end user. Composite applications address this "last mile", combining a rich user interface with SOA-driven application integration technology. Composite applications are nothing new.

Notes from AJAXWorld: Times They Are a Mashin'

The Enterprise Web 2.0 Blog Whew! What a week we just had!

What Do You Do While Waiting for Fusion-Driven SOA?

Chris Warner's Blog I spent last week at Oracle OpenWorld with Larry Ellison and 43,000 of his closest friends. At the event JackBe announced support for Oracle Fusion Middleware, most notably Oracle Portal and Webcenter. Our announcement was based upon our newest mashup innovation: a powerful connection between mashups and portals in the form of a WSRP-compliant 'mashlet' connecting to our mashup API and using a portal-friendly single-signon paradigm via an LDAP authentication server. (We've got videos demonstrating this on JackBe TV and we'll be demonstrating it live on our No... (more)

Talking Mashups with Elvis and Caesar at GartnerPalooza

John Crupi's Blog It's only Thursday morning, and I've already had a pretty full week. I got to stay at 'The Second Home of Elvis'. I got to eat with Caesar. And I got to hang out with 20+ Gartner analysts. Where was I? I was at GartnerPalooza (my name, not theirs!), three concurrent Gartner Summits in Las Vegas: 'Portals, Content & Collaboration', 'Web Innovations', and 'Open Source'. For those of you who weren't lucky enough to be there and lose money at the blackjack table like me, I thought you might like a summary of at least a few of the mashup-related items from the event...
