MOUNTAIN LAKES, NJ, September 24, 2009Red Oak Software, Inc.,a leader in Application Integration solutions, announced today that it has released Web Clipper version 2.0 to general availability. Web Clipper 2.0 is enterprise-class software that automates the creation and deployment of web clipping portlets. It is the only standalone web clipping application integration solution built on Eclipse.

Web Clipper 2.0 is an innovative professional tool that enables users to capture, build, test and deploy discreet portions of web applications into enterprise portals easily and efficiently. It is comprised of two components - a Workbench that automates the creation of web clipping portlets and a server-based Runtime to support Portal deployment. Users create web clippings using a visual wizard without any programming and deploy them as industry-standard JSR 168 portlets or portlets for any leading SOA Portal including IBM, Oracle, SAP and JBoss.

New and expanded capabilities included in this release are:

  • The Workbench has been migrated to execute within Eclipse Galileo (3.5).
  • The Workbench now fully supports the display of embedded applets.
  • The Runtime now supports the display of an embedded applet within a Web Clipper portlet.
  • Support in JBoss Portal for Apache Log4J, enabling logging for the Runtime inside JBoss.
  • The Runtime supports execution within the JBoss 2.7.2 Portal environment.
  • Detailed documentation for deployment of generic JSR 168 portlets to all environments.

Features and Benefits

  • Sophisticated Visual (No Coding) Development – Web Clipper 2.0 Workbench includes various visual process editors to automate the design, testing and deployment of standard portlets. The Workbench is the most efficient development tool available for capturing web functionality and automatically converting it into reusable web clipping portlets.

  • Standardized Web Clipping – Sharing composite web application functionality through SOA Portal applications is commonplace today. Web Clipper 2.0 is a standard and cost effective alternative to building web clippings by hand or using the cumbersome methods provided with the portal.

  • Eclipse Plug-in – Web Clipper 2.0 Workbench ships as a Plug-in, providing seamless access to this full-featured environment for developing Java solutions. Workbench users design, build and deploy web clipping portlets from within Eclipse, enabling Web Clipper to be the fastest and most efficient web integration solution available.

  • IBM, Oracle, Sun and JBoss Compatibility – As an Eclipse Plug-in, Web Clipper will work seamlessly with all existing major vendor IDE’s that are based on Eclipse.

  • Platform Integration and Team Support – Most large portal projects require multiple developers working together. Web Clipper directly supports the team versioning and control functions provided by Eclipse enabling users to work collaboratively.

  • Efficient and Scalable Runtime – Web Clipper’s 2.0 Runtime Server is the most advanced and efficient web clipping integration engine available. It provides superior performance that scales easily to meet the demands of even the largest enterprise portal deployments.

In summary, Web Clipper 2.0 is a sophisticated, state-of-the-art enterprise integration solution that enables the fastest and efficient creation of web clipping portlets. By being able to visually capture and automatically create portlets for any SOA Portal, customers will save substantial time and expense versus other alternatives. Please see Web Clipper 2.0 Release Notes for additional details.
