    Presentation Overview

    SODA - Service-Oriented Development of Applications

    Catch a glimpse of the future of application development over a slice of pizza. A new class of development tools must emerge to meet the demands of the new service-oriented model of application development driven by the adoption of web services. Gartner, the world's leading technology research firm, calls ISEs (Integrated SODA Environments) the "next generation of application development platforms for building composite applications" that "will affect every application development organization."

    ISEs represent a fusion of the tangle of design tools, IDEs, frameworks, and deployment servers that are used in the development process. In this meeting, we will present an overview of ISE functionality as well a tour through a leading .NET ISE, the WebPutty Application Platform. We'll take a look under the covers of SODA, including building a complete .NET and Web services application, and discuss how and when to use an ISE. This is a technical conversation; led by development managers for WebPutty, so bring plenty of questions!

    You will have an opportunity to evaluate how ISEs provide an easier way to build .NET applications that utilize SQL Server and Web Services -- without requiring .NET expertise. Developers use a declarative design environment to define databases, logic, and UI, and the WebPutty ISE automatically creates a full .NET application. Infrastructure and integration code are automatically created and optimized. Despite the transparent automation of most routine web development tasks, visual models give developers full visibility and control of their applications.
