Description

WCS, V5.1 is a comprehensive set of integrated software components that helps store personnel build, maintain, and manage stores to sell goods and services on the Web. V5.1 builds on the reputation for dependability, scalability, and performance by adding new capabilities beyond V4.1 in an industry-standard Java base. Marketing and sales teams can attract and retain customers and store developers can create and maintain their stores using an improved set of tools. The key components of WCS are:

  • Commerce Server — Manages the online store by running a set of processes under WebSphere Application Server, the IBM software platform for e-business.
  • Web Server — WCS uses IBM HTTP Server, included with the OS/400® operating system.
  • Database — Stores all the product, store, and customer data. WCS uses DB2 Universal Database® (UDB), included with the OS/400 operating system.
  • Payment Server — Handles payments using WebSphere Payment Manager.

Commerce Server provides all store functions, from browsing a product catalog, to placing an order, to maintaining the store. It includes these components:

  • WebSphere Application Server
    • Delivers the foundation and basic services for the Commerce Server
    • Acts as a high-performance EJB server to implement EJB components that incorporate business logic
    • Supports multiple platforms, databases, transaction systems, and servlets
    • Provides Java-based gateway, EJB connectivity, and services
  • Common Server Runtime — Framework in which the commerce application is deployed and executed. It includes:
    • Programming model
    • Process model
    • Exception handling
    • Transaction control
    • Data access
    • Persistence model

    This component leverages the run-time services provided by WebSphere Application Server to support Commerce Server applications. In V5.1, the common server runtime has been completely rewritten using a Java programming model using Java Server Pages (JSPs) and EJBs. In addition, pervasive computing, business intelligence, cookie-less session management (URL rewriting), and ECML support are added in WCS, V5.1.

  • Systems Management — Reliability, availability, and serviceability for the system. WCS logs messages to notify administrators of abnormal conditions in the system. The diagnostic information lets the administrator determine the cause of the error and rectify the system.

    In addition, HTTP Server and WebSphere Application Server provide systems management tools for configuration, monitoring, and tuning.

  • Catalog Subsystem — Catalog navigation, merchandising features, interest lists, and search capabilities. It interacts with the user and order subsystems to obtain information about viewing templates and pricing.

    In V5.1, the catalog subsystem is redesigned with groupings that categorize products, as well as catalog entries for more abstract products such as service offerings or rental agreements. In addition, offerings can be associated one-to-another for merchandising purposes such as cross-sells, up-sells, and accessories. Multicultural support has also been added and is addressed in this subsystem.

  • User Subsystem — Includes user registration, authentication, access control, and session and profile management services. More granular role-based access control and the creation and management of the buyer's user profile are new in V5.1.
  • Negotiation Subsystem (Auctions) — Merchants can make products available for auction using several auction-bidding techniques. In V5.1, wizards provide integration with WCS Accelerator.
  • Order Subsystem
    • Supports shopping carts, order processing, and management
    • Integrates pricing, taxation, payment, and fulfillment
    • Includes quick-order/buy, scheduled orders, multiple pending orders, and reorders
    • Supports currency and format based on the locale of the requestor and enhanced payment manager integration, tax, shipping, discounts, and fulfillment center capability
  • Messaging Subsystem — Common messaging API for different notification schemes such as merchant/shopper broadcast e-mail and order notification through an SMTP server. Also provides asynchronous message delivery through MQSeries®.

WCS Accelerator — Browser-based user interface that allows all personnel to operate the online store. Includes four role-based areas:

  • Marketing — The marketing manager uses the marketing tools to monitor, analyze, and understand customer behavior, so that targeted campaigns can be created for a particular customer segment.
  • Merchandising — Gives the merchandising manager the proper tools to determine the best way to sell products and track customer purchases. The techniques that can be used include direct discounts, grouping products into packages, and using accessorization to sell related products.
  • Operations — Lets the store administrator manage the store operations including orders, payments, and fulfillment.
  • Customer Service — The customer service representative can update customer information, display customer order status, change passwords, or create orders.
  • WebSphere Commerce Analyzer — Provides a complete business intelligence solution that enables merchants to track and analyze customer behavior and purchase patterns, so promotions/campaigns can be targeted to an individual's needs. Companies use their data to learn more about their customers and prospects. This component provides reports accessible from the WCS Accelerator that demonstrate comparable success rates of your marketing campaigns, as well as demographic distributions of customers.

Multicultural Enablement — Create a store that can be tailored to fit the needs of an international or culturally diverse customer base. Multicultural site characteristics include language, currency, data format, address, taxation, shipping, catalog content, page content, payment method, and prices. With these features shoppers can select their preferred language and currencies. These preferences are preserved and are preloaded the next time the shopper logs on.

Tools

  • Mass Loader — Allows catalogs to be created and updated. A catalog developer can maintain the product catalog in an XML file and use the Mass Loader utility to populate the WCS database.
  • Store Archive Services — Provides a central location and tools for creating, customizing, and maintaining certain operational features of a store. Store development tools focus on helping customers create and customize their stores. Included in WCS is a store model provided in the form of an archive (Zip) file. This store archive file is the encapsulation of a store, including the file and database assets. Using browser-based tools, you can customize this file to meet your store needs. An instantiation utility is provided to convert the archive into a live store on the WCS server. Using the Store Archive Services, you can:
    • Edit general store information with the Store Profile Editor
    • Modify tax and shipping settings
    • Publish the store archive to create a running store

WebSphere Commerce Studio — Provides the development tools for WCS. Two versions are available:

  • Developer Edition
  • Professional Developer Edition

Both versions contain WebSphere Studio, WCS (development license only) and are available on a Windows NT™ and Windows™ 2000 platform.

The Professional Developer Edition also contains VisualAge® for Java Enterprise Edition, Blaze Innovator, and Blaze Advisor.

Components include:

  • WebSphere Studio, Advanced Edition — Comprehensive tools environment for building e-business applications.
  • VisualAge for Java, Enterprise Edition — Integrated visual environment that supports the complete cycle of Java program development. Programmers can easily modify or create Java Beans or EJBs and publish them to the Commerce Server. It also provides connectors that allow Java applications to connect with many systems such as SAP R/3.
  • Blaze Innovator — Business managers can easily create and change business rules without programming. They can define or adjust assessment criteria, pricing, and other dynamic business policies and put them into operation as often and as quickly as the e-business marketplace demands.
  • Blaze Advisor Builder — Complete visual development environment for writing, editing, viewing, and testing personalization and e-business rules — the logic a company uses to make decisions.
  • PerfectPhoto® — Enhances and manipulates digital images for your Web site.
  • HotMedia™ — This tool kit for creative professionals helps to enrich e-business applications. You can add special effects such as streaming audio, 360° views, animations, panning and scrolling, and zoomable multi-resolution images.

Additional Software: Additional components for a complete e-commerce solution include WebSphere Payment Manager for online secure electronic payment. The Payment Manager also includes CyberCash, VisaNet, and SET cassettes. Other software components are:

  • Macromedia LikeMinds — Recommendation engine that uses multiple inputs, such as individual clickstream data, purchase history, explicit preferences, and product similarities to make product recommendations for customers. LikeMinds is licensed for the storage of 50,000 profiles. To expand beyond this number, you can order WebSphere Collaborative Profiles, Commerce Suite Edition, providing 250,000 additional profiles.
  • Segue SilkPreview — Use this product by Segue Software Inc. to quickly measure the response time of a Web or e-business site. SilkPreview is a trial version Web performance-monitoring tool based on the technology implemented in Segue's SilkPerformer and SilkMonitor.

WebSphere Catalog Manager (WCM)

WCM, V1.2 is available and can be purchased separately to assist WCS customers in the creation and management of their online catalog. The WCM Loader is included in the base code of WCS to facilitate the loading and maintenance of catalog information within the production runtime environment. The WCM Loader function is the only component of the overall WCM product that has been integrated into the base code.

Accessibility by People with Disabilities

WCS, V5.1 is designed for accessibility; however, these features have not been completely tested. Future versions are planned to be designed and tested for accessibility. For additional information, contact your IBM representative.
