Advantech's not-so-secret toolbox: GlassFish, OpenESB, OpenSSO, Metro, etc...

Israel-based Advantech has agreed to share their success stories working with the GlassFish application, OpenESB and other Sun-sponsored open source technologies. Both stories discussed in the detailed questionnaire use GlassFish as a foundation for either OpenESB 2.0 or the large Java CAPS SOA product from Sun.

Business issues solved with those technologies range from a human workflow system to integration between legacy billing system and front-end CRM and customer portal. More technical uses of the GlassFish/OpenESB duo by Advantech include a throttling proxy. The deployment operating systems and back-end databases constitue a pretty good representation of the "usual suspects".

Beyond the list of just about all the GlassFish features used (yet another OpenMQ user by the way), Advantech's Dror Yaffe, Chief Architect of their Java Division goes on to list the various integration challenges faced and the sophisticated set of frameworks and libraries used. They range from OpenSSO, the Spring framework, AS400 integration with jt400, or project Metro. Make sure you read the details here. Finally, beyond a nice "Java EE by the book" comment, Dror mentions GlassFish's "High Availability Architecture" as the thing he likes best about GlassFish. Very nice.

Carrefour, GlassFish, Web Services and Microsoft Identity

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."

Added - Also see the formal Customer Reference Story for Carrefour Belgium, describing their use of Sun GlassFish Enterprise Server and Sun Java Composite Application Platform Suite.
