Pick a peck of portlets

In a move designed to enable its enterprise portal customers to create and deploy portal applications from browser-accessible information sources, XML data sources, Java classes, databases and Web services, Sybase has acquired OnePage, whose software identifies, automatically extracts and retrieves user-specific information from browser-accessible sources.

Sybase says OnePage’s tools and interfaces offer IT professionals, Web publishers and users more powerful ways to aggregate content and applications to create personalized, user-driven portals. Sybase believes portlets provide the inherent value to users, with the capability to interact with and access information and applications.

However, Sybase claims, pre-built portlets almost always have to be modified for an enterprise’s specific requirements, often involving expensive coding and maintenance. This new Sybase/OnePage technology adds value to customers by simplifying the development of portlets for Sybase EP, says the company.
