Carrefour, GlassFish, Web Services and Microsoft Identity
By alexismp on Feb 19, 2008
Carrefour Belgium is now relying on GlassFish to serve as a bridge between an SAP backend system and the company's account synchronization solution. The architecture uses GlassFish's Metro to expose a BAPI (SAP's most used API) as a Web Service. As of this writing, the architecture in production relies on the latest and greatest 9.1 ur1 release which integrates Metro 1.1. NetBeans was used as the IDE to develop the entire code in a record time.
Carrefour Belgium is on track to make more use of the Sun software platform, specifically with the Java CAPS Sun SOA offering which is built on the GlassFish platform.
Make sure you read the full GlassFish questionnaire answered by Julien-Pierre Rousseau of Carrefour Belgium and understand why he calls GlassFish "Easy to use. Offers a short time-to-market, which is good for the business."
