PeopleSoft Community Portal Supports Web Services for Remote Portlets (WSRP) Standard
PeopleSoft Demonstrates WSRP Portal Interoperability at XML 2004
First Enterprise Application Vendor to Support the OASIS Standard for Application Content
Pleasanton, California, USA. November 18, 2004.
At the XML Conference and Exposition 2004, PeopleSoft Inc. demonstrated that the PeopleSoft Community Portal and PeopleSoft applications seamlessly interoperate with other leading portal vendors by leveraging the Web Services for Remote Portlets (WSRP) standard. As part of the demonstration, PeopleSoft portal content was displayed in IBM WebSphere, BEA, Sun Microsystems and other leading portal solutions. PeopleSoft will be the first enterprise applications software vendor to integrate content from core business applications with third party portals using the WSRP standard.
"Companies increasingly need to aggregate data across multiple portal platforms and Web applications, and provide an intuitive user interface," said Roy Satterthwaite, vice president of marketing, PeopleSoft Tools & Technology. "PeopleSoft continues to embrace open standards such as WSRP to allow customers to effectively address their portal and Web services integration challenges."
As a founding member of the OASIS Technical Committee on WSRP, PeopleSoft is actively involved in refining the WSRP standard as well as collaborating with other vendors to help resolve the inability to interoperate across multiple portal platforms and applications. WSRP simplifies integration by allowing a portal administrator to select desired services from a list and integrate them into their portal. Like other Web service standards, WSRP provides seamless integration between disparate technologies such as .NET and Java.
PeopleSoft Community Portal will provide support for WSRP in the 8.9 release scheduled for Q1 2005.
OASIS, Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards, is a not-for-profit, international consortium that drives the development, convergence, and adoption of e-business standards.
PeopleSoft is the world's second largest provider of enterprise application software with 12,750 customers in more than 25 industries and 150 countries. For more information, visit us at www.peoplesoft.com.
