Building Composite, Role-Based Dashboards Using WebSphere Dashboard Framework
WebSphere Dashboard Framework is a tool for rapidly building dashboard applications on top of a service-oriented architecture, including WebSphere Portal environments. Developers can quickly and easily leverage their company's core assets and data by automatically assembling them into custom, high-value dashboards. Portlets created with WebSphere Dashboard Framework are dynamic, robust Java 2 Enterprise Edition (J2EE) applications that react automatically to change. Business users can modify them in real time to meet changing business requirements without requiring any coding, duplicating, or versioning of assets. By eliminating the need to code all of these implementations and their variations, WebSphere Dashboard Framework simplifies the development, deployment, and change management processes. This paper provides an overview of the options and techniques for developing applications using the WebSphere Dashboard Framework.
