BEA unveils portal convergence roadmap
Among the slew of announcements coming out of BEA Systems Inc's last user conference for the year was a strategy statement on how it plans to converge its two portal product lines.
The strategy will involve three phases covering interoperability, common services, culminating with eventual unification.
The acquisition of Plumtree last spring gave BEA a parallel Microsoft-oriented product, alongside WebLogic Portal, a J2EE offering. Following the acquisition, the Plumtree portal was placed as part of the newly announced AquaLogic SOA family.
