WebSphere Application Server V7: Accessing EIS Applications from WebSphere

An IBM Redpaper publication


The J2EE™ Connector architecture (JCA) defines a standard architecture for connecting the J2EE platform to heterogeneous Enterprise Information Systems (EIS), for example, ERP, mainframe transaction processing, database systems, and existing applications not written in the Java™ programming language. By defining a set of scalable, secure, and transactional mechanisms, the JCA enables the integration of EISs with application servers and enterprise applications. WebSphere® Application Server V7.0 provides a complete implementation of the JCA 1.5 specification, including the features of the JCA 1.0 Specification.

In this IBM® Redpaper™ publication, we discuss the various considerations for accessing EIS applications from WebSphere.

This paper is the stand-alone version of chapter 10 of WebSphere Application Server V7 Administration and Configuration Guide, SG24-7615.
