Web Services Integrated in DocuWare 5.1
Newburgh, NY - DocuWare presents its latest Web Services solution based on SOA - DocuWare 5.1 - at this year's Document Management Systems exposition (DMS) in Cologne, Germany (Hall 7, C089). Clients from the Java and Windows world can be easily integrated. Industry-standard Web Services give users more flexibility when designing their business processes.
An open-platform architecture of the new DocuWare 5 product generation is 100% compatible with the philosophy of Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) and guarantees a high level of scalability and system stability. In addition to top performance using load balancing, version 5.1 now also offers Web Services for communicating with a wide range of third-party applications. Web Services enable .NET-based DocuWare servers to interact easily with numerous applications from Java and Windows environments.
Easy data and document exchange
No knowledge of server platform implementation is required to access DocuWare servers via Web Services. The new DocuWare Web Services are designed to support even the most complex requirements of a business process. Aside from storing and retrieving documents within a workflow, this also includes editing index terms and adding electronic stamps - typical features of DocuWare. 'Compatible Web Services' are provided for connecting to a Java client, while 'Session Web Services' are in place for integrating a .NET client. These can also communicate with Microsoft's BizTalk server allowing data and documents to be exchanged between applications without the need for customization.
DocuWare Web Services run on a separate application server. High speed is achieved through efficient coding and the scalability of background services including the Web Services server.
Integration security guaranteed
For Jürgen Biffar, DocuWare's President, SOA was the reason for developing the new DocuWare 5 product generation. He sees it as his company's mission to offer standards-based modules to their customers and prospects. "Integration in third-party applications is simple thanks to the open archive architecture of our document management system."
