Trilog Group's FlowBuilder 3.0 Brings Domino-like Development Framework to J2EE

Trilog Group's FlowBuilder 3.0 Brings Domino-like Development Framework to J2EE

Trilog Group has released Version 3.0 of its flagship product, FlowBuilder. With FlowBuilder 3.0, Domino developers benefit from a platform-agnostic solution that enables them to build J2EE applications for any standards-based Web application server or portal server without first having to learn Java and without any loss in productivity. J2EE developers benefit from a higher-level, graphical framework for more rapid development of collaborative applications for any standards-based Web platform. Both groups benefit from FlowBuilder's integrated service environment and component-assembly architecture that fully supports XML and Web services.

As more Lotus Notes and Domino organizations look to incorporate the benefits of Java into their collaborative IT environments, FlowBuilder 3.0 enables them to use their existing Domino developers to build standards-based applications in Java and XML without the complexity of Java programming. This approach saves minimizes staff retraining and lost productivity, while enabling integration with new J2EE messaging platforms, such as Lotus Workplace and Oracle Collaboration Suite.

For organizations that have already invested in the J2EE platform, FlowBuilder 3.0 provides their Java developers with a higher-level development framework with rich, "Domino-like" capabilities for handling the complexity of core business process applications. These capabilities increase productivity in both the development and maintenance of business solutions and portlets.

FlowBuilder 3.0 employs a dual Portlet/Servlet controller architecture that loads dynamic pages as generated Java classes. These pages can be designed through simple visual component assembly, which makes the development process faster, more intuitive, more flexible, and more reusable than JSPs or Active Server Pages (ASPs). This higher level development model, referred to as XML Server Pages (XSP) enables developers to rapidly create J2EE and XML solutions that can be deployed on any standards-based Web application server or portal server, and to migrate existing Notes applications to new IBM platforms, such as Lotus Workplace.

Any FlowBuilder 3.0 application can be published as portlets through IBM WebSphere Portal or IBM Lotus Workplace with just simple configuration and no further development. Business solutions created with FlowBuilder can leverage all the advanced capabilities of WebSphere Portal, such as session sharing, portlet messaging, and click-to-action. Integration with IBM Lotus Workplace isn't just limited to the portal user interface. As Workplace offers componentized collaborative services, these services can be incorporated into the FlowBuilder framework as beans and dropped-on tags to create core business process applications with rich collaborative capabilities. FlowBuilder's technology complies with Java Specification Request (JSR) 168, which is designed to enable interoperability between portlets and portals.

FlowBuilder 3.0 also includes a simple four-step migration wizard that converts Notes design elements into the FlowBuilder framework, and then expresses them in Java. FlowBuilder automatically converts Notes design elements including forms, subforms, views, and view categories, as well as Notes formulas, rich text, the security model, and all of the application’s data, documents and attachments.

FlowBuilder 3.0 includes many other new features and capabilities; for a complete listing, visit www.flowbuilder.com.
