Reviews

"Corporate Portals Empowered with XML and Web Services is a must-read for those planning or developing a corporate portal for their organization. The book provides both technical and business management insight into the issues both groups face. This is key to a truly integrated system. Guruge's use of real world examples makes this a lesson in practicality, not simply another book on theory."—David Johnson, Cisco Systems "My recommendation for any business, regardless of what industry it is in, is to take a very serious look at portals and the business benefits offered. It is too risky to ignore this area of Web technology. This book provides the best starting point I can think of for getting an understanding of the many facets associated with portals and their relevance to modern businesses."—Stuart McIrvine, Program Director, Market Management, WebSphere Integration Middleware, IBM
