Integrating SAP solutions with IBM WebSphere products

An interoperability survey

This article describes how the IBM WebSphere family of products can be used in an SAP environment. It contains a brief survey of WebSphere products, highlighting how each product interoperates with SAP software. This interoperability begins with solid compliance with and mutual support of open standards by both WebSphere and the SAP NetWeaver platform. It then extends to different levels of interoperability, from SAP-specific business integration adapters and portlets (available out of the box), to development tools that allow you to build applications that easily access your SAP resources, to complementary capabilities that allow you to build customized solutions
