Plants by WebSphere® is a traditional demonstration Web application for IBM® WebSphere Application Server that illustrates commerce functionality, such as product management, shopping cart, and purchase processing. With the release of the WebSphere Application Server Feature Pack for Web 2.0, a new level of user interaction is now possible, enabling Web applications to be more robust and even as responsive as desktop applications. This article discusses the technologies and techniques you can leverage from the Feature Pack for Web 2.0 to “remake” the Plants by WebSphere application to be Web 2.0 ready, with UI redesign, RESTful interactions, plus community and user participation. This content is part of the IBM WebSphere Developer Technical Journal.
