IBM WebSphere® Host Publisher can provide a quick and easy way to implement e-business by extending legacy applications to Web browser users and new WebSphere applications. WebSphere Host Publisher can be used to increase sales and reduce costs through applications such as Web self-service. Integrating multiple back-end applications into a single Web page (which appears to the end users as one new application) combined with HTML Web page delivery makes Host Publisher the ideal solution for extending legacy applications to end users.
WebSphere Host Publisher can significantly accelerate the time to market and can reduce the expense of new WebSphere application development projects which require legacy access and integration. Host Publisher Studio can be used to generate the Java Beans, EJBs, or Web services needed to provide legacy applications access to new WebSphere projects. This eliminates the need for Java developers to become legacy experts and enables them to focus on developing the new Web application functionality.
Previous versions of WebSphere Host Publisher provided a leading-edge solution for extending existing applications to Web users. However, the industry has evolved and providing access to Web browser users is no longer sufficient. Today's more-sophisticated e-businesses need a consolidated Web-portal based solution for access to Enterprise Information Systems their employees and customers need. WebSphere Host Publisher has also evolved, and V4 provides a WebSphere Portal portlet that enables all of your 3270 and 5250 legacy content to be provided as new portal content quickly and easily, delivering a single enterprise-wide view to your end users.
WebSphere Host Publisher supports applications written for 3270, 5250, Virtual Terminal (VT), Java, and databases that provide a Java Database Connectivity (JDBC) interface. It supports HTML-browsers and does not require specific Java-enabled browsers or changes to the existing legacy applications.
WebSphere Host Publisher is part of IBM's comprehensive portfolio of WebSphere e-business solutions designed to deliver maximum investment protection and return on investment as your e-business needs evolve.
This product requires WebSphere Application Server V4.0.2 and one of the following operating systems supported by V4.0.2:
IBM WebSphere Host Publisher provides a quick and easy way to implement e-business by extending the reach of mission-critical applications to Web browser users and new WebSphere applications, requiring no changes to the existing applications. Broad legacy application support combined with enterprise class scalability, security, and availability features make Host Publisher the ideal solution for new e-business deployments. Supported legacy application types include 3270, 5250, and VT applications and databases that provide a Java Database Connectivity (JDBC) interface such as IBM DB2 Universal Database®, Oracle and Sybase, as well as any API-based Java application or bean. Whether your objective is reducing costs or increasing revenue through Web-to-host deployments, or accelerating new e-business application development projects, Host Publisher delivers the capabilities to get there quickly, and to grow as your e-business grows.
WebSphere Host Publisher provides the answer for HTML delivery of host information to end users and includes features specifically designed to address the Internet environment, such as:
WebSphere Host Publisher provides the answer for accessing legacy applications from new Web applications and delivers a wide range of options for accelerating the time to market for new Web application projects requiring legacy access and integration:
Host Publisher consists of two major components:
Host Publisher Studio
Host Publisher Studio is a collection of task-oriented, easy-to-use GUIs that assist the Web-application builder in managing and creating Web-to-host projects. It uses task-oriented prompts to guide the user through the creation process, minimizing or eliminating the need for programming to accomplish these projects.
Studio automatically generates a Java Bean, called an Integration Object, which encapsulates legacy interactions and data retrieval. In addition, Studio can generate a corresponding EJB to access these legacy systems. New with Host Publisher V4 is the ability to selectively enable legacy applications and services as new Web Services.
You can use Studio to generate a fully customizable HTML Web page for modeling interaction with the Integration Objects and presenting the resulting data. The HTML Web page can be enhanced with Web authoring tools, such as WebSphere Studio, to meet corporate guidelines on style and image. Once the Web page is completed, you can publish it to Host Publisher Server for production access by end users.
Host Publisher Studio is provided on a separate CD assembly and runs on Windows 98, Windows Me, Windows NT, Windows 2000, and Windows XP operating systems.
The applications created with the common Host Publisher Studio will run
unchanged in all supported environments: AIX, Sun Solaris, and Windows.
Additional platform support is provided by Host Publisher for IBM zSeries,
and Host Publisher for IBM iSeries, which are available as separate
products. The ability to move from one operating system platform to
another will allow you to move your workload to a higher-capacity
platform as demands increase.
Host Publisher Server
Host Publisher Server provides the runtime environment for supporting Web applications created with Host Publisher Studio. Host Publisher Server is on a separate CD assembly and consists of run-time components such as:
WebSphere Host Publisher requires and exploits the leading-edge WebSphere Application Server V4 run-time environment. The combination of WebSphere Application Server and Host Publisher delivers an unparalleled solution for enterprise-class legacy integration with new WebSphere e-business applications and host application extension to new Web users.
WebSphere Host Publisher V4 brings J2EE compliance to Web-to-host implementations. J2EE provides value by significantly reducing the cost and complexity of developing and deploying multitier solutions, resulting in services that can be rapidly deployed and easily enhanced.
A production use license for IBM WebSphere Application Server, Advanced Edition V4 is not included with WebSphere Host Publisher V4 but must be acquired with a separate product order.
Host Publisher V4 does include a separate CD for the WebSphere
Application Server, Advanced Developer Edition V4. The license
associated with this program is for development use only and is not for
production use. You are limited to the use of this program for internal
evaluation and for the development, demonstration and testing of
applications which use this program in accordance with its license
Scalability and High Availability
WebSphere Host Publisher exploits the load-balancing and high availability capabilities of the WebSphere Application Server workload management (WLM) function. WebSphere Application Server provides support for running multiple Java Virtual Machines (JVMs) on a single machine. JVMs that are clones of each other can be limited to one machine (vertical cloning) or can be spread across multiple machines (horizontal cloning). Both types of cloning provide two benefits:
WebSphere Host Publisher delivers a broad range of security options. On the Web side of a Host Publisher implementation, all of the existing industry-standard Web security mechanism for securing access and authentication are enabled. This includes SSL for data encryption and client authentication. To existing legacy applications, Host Publisher will appear as a standard user of the application which enables you to leverage your existing legacy security systems, such as RACF® on IBM zSeries, to control access to these critical resources.
A critically important requirement when extending legacy applications to the general public is not just making the application easily available and easy to use, but also controlling user's access to application content and services. Host Publisher provides exacting control over which application options are exposed to the end user through its Studio navigational facilities. In addition, because the end user is never directly connected to the legacy application (the end user connects to Host Publisher which accesses the legacy system for the end user), the potential for the end user to wander to other applications is virtually eliminated.
WebSphere Host Publisher provides a feature called Express Logon that
when used in conjunction with RACF on the IBM zSeries enables you to use
Web browser certificates to log end users onto legacy applications, thus
eliminating the need for individual end users to provide user IDs and
Web Services provide an open industry-standard way for applications to connect and interact on the Web by enabling businesses to publish interfaces to their business processes, streamlining interaction with their organizational value net. It allows multiple divisions, trading partners, contractors, customers, and suppliers to connect business processes and create cross-enterprise transactions.
New with WebSphere Host Publisher V4 is the ability to quickly and easily extend your legacy applications, (which can be thought of as legacy services) as new Web Services. WebSphere Host Publisher Integration Objects and EJBs are now enabled as new Web Services. Host Publisher Studio has been enhanced to provide a selectable Web Services option so your existing Host Publisher skills can be leveraged in creating new Web Services. In addition, Host Publisher Studio now generates new Web Services-specific Java methods developed to optimize network performance and response time when deploying legacy services as new Web Services across a wide area network.
WebSphere Host Publisher is used in conjunction with WebSphere Studio Application Developer to create Web Services, build the corresponding Web Service Description Language (WSDL), register the Web Services within the Universal Description, Discovery, and Integration (UDDI) registry, and deploy the Web Service via WebSphere Application Server.
A key strength of the Web Services industry standard is that existing back-end implementations do not need to be changed. Your tested and operational core information technology structure can be reused without the effort, scheduling impact, and risk that would be involved in rework. The new Host Publisher Web Services support enables you to accomplish this quickly while leveraging your existing investment in Host Publisher skills.
Support for Web Services has been implemented in a number of IBM software
products, including WebSphere Application Server and WebSphere Studio.
Now WebSphere Host Publisher enables you to develop Integration Objects
and EJBs that can become parts of Web Services that can be deployed in
the WebSphere environment.
WebSphere Portal Server
The WebSphere Portal family provides a secure, single point of interaction with diverse information, business processes, and people, personalized to a user's needs and responsibilities. This personalized single point of access to all necessary information resources reduces information overload, accelerates productivity, and increases Web site usage.
The 3270 and 5250 legacy information systems that drive today's businesses are important enterprise information resources. New with WebSphere Host Publisher V4 is a Host Publisher portlet that enables legacy content and services to quickly and easily be extended as new portal content. This will enable you to incorporate your huge inventory of legacy application content within the personalized single point of access provided by the WebSphere Portal.
The Host Publisher portlet delivers the state management capabilities needed to enable complex interaction with existing applications while enabling the navigational ease-of-use characteristics of the portal server.
Accessibility by People with Disabilities
The following features support use by people with disabilities:
WebSphere Host Publisher is a core component of IBM's market-leading WebSphere Host Integration Solution. It provides the HTML and WebSphere application enablement solution within this offering and complements IBM's WebSphere Host On-Demand capability to quickly and easily extend host applications to Web users through its Java-based emulator.
WebSphere Host Publisher focuses on consolidating multiple existing applications, without modification, to present a single integrated view to a Web browser. This leverages security, scalability, and availability features that are essential for the deployment of e-business applications. It delivers a quick and easy way for companies to implement e-business applications by extending existing applications to the Web. It is primarily intended for the legacy extension space with little or no new business logic. WebSphere tools, like WebSphere Studio, may be used to add new business logic to a Host Publisher implementation if needed.
WebSphere Host Publisher's ability to integrate with IBM's Java-based connectors, such as MQSeries®, delivers unlimited reach for customers as their back-end application needs change and expand over time.
WebSphere Host Publisher is part of IBM's comprehensive WebSphere portfolio of leading-edge e-business solutions and provides additional value-add when used in conjunction with other members of the WebSphere family. Examples include:
