<p>New JCA-Compliant Universal Adapter Framework and Tight Integration With WebSphere Tools Eliminate Need for Custom Programming WebSphere Integration Solutions</p>
<p>Sydney – 16 July 2003 – iWay Software, an Information Builders company and the world's leading adapter provider, today announced expanded support for IBM's WebSphere product line – including WebSphere Application Server and the former MQSeries products, – WebSphere MQ and WebSphere MQ Integrator (WMQI). iWay's Universal Adapter Framework will dramatically reduce the cost, time, and effort of integrating enterprise applications with WebSphere Application Server by dramatically reducing the need for custom programming.</p>
<p>Tight integration with WebSphere Studio, the platform's development environment, enables customers to easily create connections to mission-critical legacy data and packaged composite applications. Being JCA compliant, the iWay Universal Adapter Framework enables painless integration of packaged applications, relational and nonrelational databases, transaction processing systems, and industry standard document formats. iWay's Universal Adapter Framework also allows you to incorporate more than 250 information systems into the WebSphere architecture.</p>
<p>iWay adapters provide tight integration via reusable interfaces that can be invoked from WebSphere, using JCA or as Web services using WSIF, WSDL, and SOAP. Additionally, the iWay plug-in suite is compatible with existing WMQI processing nodes, allowing interfaces to be reused by WebSphere Application Server or WMQI.</p>
<p>"We are pleased to ease the integration needs of IBM WebSphere customers," said Mr Jon Piercey, Country Manager Information Builders Australia. "Our Universal Adapter Framework will deliver ease in flexibility, alongside considerable reductions in complexity, time, and cost associated with enterprise integration deployments."</p>
