You've probably noticed that the "WebSphere" name gets thrown around a lot here on developerWorks -- which is not surprising, considering how many solutions are now part of the WebSphere family. But we wouldn't want you to lose sight of what's at the heart of IBM's powerful integration software platform: WebSphere Application Server is the foundation for all of the other WebSphere stuff we talk about. Want a clearer picture (literally) of how it all fits together? Our new WebSphere Application Server product animations provide lively overviews of the product's primary functions and characteristics. (For more WebSphere fundamentals, visit the New to WebSphere page.) Already using WebSphere Application Server? These sample scripts make it easy to automate common administration tasks and configure security. Speaking of scripts, check out Bob Gibson's new article on how to create a Jython administrative script for WebSphere Application Server. And don't forget that you can download the product trial, or access it in the cloud.
And with that, I've now fulfilled my monthly quota for use of the word "WebSphere."
Until next week,
John Swanson and the developerWorks editorial team
