First 2 are from Marketing. Last point is trying to explain that you aren&apos;t changing what&apos;s there but using webi functionality (not look-and-feel) in your own application
Obvious questions here is which is better ? If not asked then should be raised. JSP is superior technology + platform independent. If a customer is currently NT then don&apos;t choose ASP immediately. If there is a possibility of migrating to a Unix box (scaling up) then building the app in JSP would mean that it is portable to Unix. Other considerations: skill set of current IT staff, need to buy an app server for JSP
Purpose here is to highlight the varied skills required Animated
Animated App server is more than just web server + JSP Container but from the point of view of WebI this is the only requirement. App Servers also provide EJB functionlaity and automatic clustering.
WebI 1.0 introduces WIS (proprietary BO solution) WebI 2.0 introduces WICOM (Microsoft Active Server Page (ASP) standard) WebI 2.5 introduces WIBean (Sun Java Server Page (JSP) standard)
Point 1 not important unless someone in class is big on Java Point 2 explain this: use one object to instantiate another object – can’t just pick up any object and use it Point 3. Not strict collection classes Make sure that class is OK with interpreting APIs – to know about return types and parameters etc
The SoccerNet demo. Scenario You&apos;re doing a POC for ESPN SoccerNet – they web displays results for all football games across Eurpoe. They want a BI tool to do the extract of data from their results DB. We&apos;ll do this as a POC. Demo Click on the SoccerNet link on the Links bar in Internet Explorer Select the &quot;Champ League&quot; menu option in L.H. menu bar – this will do a &quot;blind login&quot; to WebI Select Tables in the sub menu of Champ League – opens a WebI document. This document has been deliberately left with the colours of WebI just to show that it is webi. Note, the data was fixed for Nov 20.
These are internal resources for SDK. See handout for a list of both internal and external resources, books, etc
