Bowstreet Portlet Factory 5.8.2 Includes PeopleSoft Extension

TEWKSBURY, Mass. --(Business Wire)-- June 17, 2004 -- New Extension Makes It Fast and Easy To Create, Customize, Deploy, and Maintain Robust Portlets That Leverage Existing PeopleSoft Business Processes and Data

Bowstreet(TM), a leading provider of development tools for adaptive J2EE applications, today announced the availability of Bowstreet Portlet Factory version 5.8.2. This new release features the PeopleSoft Extension, allowing companies to rapidly integrate PeopleSoft data and business processes with their portals.

Bowstreet's PeopleSoft Extension augments Portlet Factory with easy-to-use, automation components (Builders(TM)) to rapidly create, customize, and maintain custom portlets that interface directly with PeopleSoft applications. With this new extension, companies can enable employees, partners and customers to have selective, convenient access to company and product information that was previously only available to a few people who had direct access to PeopleSoft backend systems.

"IBM is pleased to work with companies like Bowstreet who are set apart by the ability to integrate with key technologies. IBM's WebSphere(a) Portal customers want to access data from a variety of systems, and Bowstreet makes it easy for them to get the information they need," said Bill Swatling, product manager, WebSphere Portal, IBM. "Bowstreet's latest release enhances the value of WebSphere Portal to the PeopleSoft customer base."

With WebSphere Portal, users can interact with the on demand world in a personalized way, via real-time information access and business process execution across critical applications. Bowstreet Portlet Factory for WebSphere supercharges the WebSphere Portal Server with tools and technology for rapidly creating, customizing, maintaining, and deploying portlets.

"Bowstreet offers tight integration with a number of backend systems, including SAP, Lotus Domino and, with this new release, PeopleSoft," said Rose O'Donnell, vice president of engineering, Bowstreet. "Our customers can easily build composite applications that aggregate data and functionality from disparate systems, such as PeopleSoft, Lotus, and databases, into a single portlet. Our goal is to add several new extensions over the next 12 months and make Bowstreet Portlet Factory the leading software automation tool for integrating backend data into user-facing applications."

Bowstreet Portlet Factory 5.8.2 also offers more automated control of generated template "look and feel", and is available immediately.
