OnePage's portlet building software can identify and automatically extract user-specific information from browser-based sources, XML data sources, Java classes, databases, and Web services, according to company. The technology is designed to minimise the time required to customise portals and reduce the cost of integrating content into a portal, officials said.
Sybase plans to combine the OnePage technology with its Sybase Enterprise Portal, creating a simple means to develop content within the portal framework.
"Portlets are one of the most expensive parts of building a portal," said Mark Wilson, senior director of corporate development at Sybase.
With the addition of OnePage technology "the total cost of ownership of the portal will be lower and it will be easier to build more portlets and let users customise how they view the data," he said.
Sybase announced in February that it was eyeing the OnePage tool with a view to advancing its Web services strategy.
Featuring support for SOAP (Simple Object Access Protocol) and WSDL (Web Services Description Language) OnePage can receive feeds from Web services, publish to Web services and represent Web services through the portal, Wilson said.
