|The Patterns for e-business are a group of proven, reusable assets that can speed the process of developing applications.|
In this IBM® Redbook we describe the Application Integration patterns, and how, together with one or more of the other Patterns for e-business, they form Custom designs. We first discuss the application integration methods, how IBM Lotus® Domino™ 6 and IBM WebSphere® Application Server V5 can be integrated, and then move into Hybrid Runtime patterns, where both Domino and WebSphere Application Server exist. We then expand our discussion of Hybrid Runtime patterns to include Directory integration as well as
In the second half of the book we describe three real-life scenarios where Patterns for e-business are applied and Domino and WebSphere Application Server are part of the runtime topology. We start from the business requirements, then identify and apply the applicable Business, Application, and Runtime patterns to get to our own runtime topology. We start with a simple scenario, and then increase the complexity in the following scenarios. We discuss technology options, and provide design and development guidelines for the solutions as well.
