TransWare releases eForms-Management server LiveForms
TransWare AG announced the eForm-Management Server LiveForms, which is based on XML technology.

LiveForms eForms-Management server for TAMINO is available for Windows Server editions 2000/XP/2003 and also for several open systems like Unix and LINUX. With Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) the authenticity of the eForms-content and documents is secure. A version management tool includes all document templates with validation dates and the input of content is versioned. A form can be changed in a sequence of process-steps by many users in different, role-associated areas of the form.

LiveForms is a SOAP-server (and also client) and follows the service-orientated architecture principles (SoA) and allows flexible load and store of all information directly to applications. LiveForms is optimized for TAMINO to store not only XML form-content, but also all control data is natively stored to the XML database.


IBM updates WebSphere Portal
IBM announced an updated release of its IBM WebSphere Portal, which is designed for users working with composite applications. Composite applications enable the integration of information from multiple applications, providing end users with the content they need based on their role and task.

WebSphere Portal features workflows, templates and content management capabilities. Included with this release is a workflow builder, which enables business process owners to create and modify departmental workflows to meet their needs. Users see only the tasks assigned to them along with relevant information from across the company, enabling faster decisions and keeping tasks from getting lost in crowded in-boxes, IBM said.

IBM WebSphere Portal Version 6.0 is expected to be available for Linux, AIX, HP, Microsoft Windows, i5OS and Sun in the third quarter of 2006.
