Bowstreet Software Inc. on Monday released an enhanced version of its Business Web Factory software for creating Web services.
The Lynnfield, Massachusetts-based company claims that its Bowstreet Business Web Factory 4 enables enterprises to Web services-enable their e-business middleware, applications servers, enterprise platforms, and data.
"We are continuing to lower the barrier to Web services adoption," said Chip Martin, a product manager at Bowstreet.
To that end, new features include support for the latest Web services standards, including the core de facto Web services standards, XML (Extensible Markup Language), SOAP (Simple Object Access Protocol), and WSDL (Web Services Description Language).
Furthermore, Business Web Factory brings a higher level of interoperability with Web services infrastructures from IBM, BEA Sy0stems, Sun Microsystems, and Microsoft, as well as applications from PeopleSoft and SAP.
Martin added that Bowstreet's design environment has been integrated with JBuilde from Borland.
"We plan to pick up two or three of the most popular IDEs and work with them as well," Martin said.
Business Factory also powers Bowstreet portal initiatives.
