Nouveau Alliance® Collaboration Server
Add Advance Collaboration to Your Organization
The Nouveau Alliance® Collaboration Server is a robust, peer-to-peer (P2P) framework for collaboration-enabled and service-oriented solutions. The server provides its functionality through an extensible set of platform services and application logic that runs within a set of workspace containers. The collaboration server framework is light-weight and modular. It enables you to add new functionality, and even create custom servers, simply by adding and configuring services and application logic.
The Ideal Platform for Collaboration and Integration
Using the Nouveau Alliance Collaboration Server is your fastest route to creating enterprise ready, collaboration-enabled applications using standard Java desktop technologies. You can develop applications using industry standard Java Beans technology, and the framework provides scaleable distribution, long-term persistence, and collaboration enabling features. As a result, you can leverage what you already know about developing stand-alone applications without worrying about complex programming techniques.
The Ideal Platform for Service-Oriented Solutions
Nouveau Alliance Collaboration Server simplifies creating service oriented solutions using a building-block approach. You create reusable services, such as document routing service, and combine existing services to create a new solution. Building solutions from services, significantly decreases the effort required and simplify deployment of new solutions. The Nouveau Alliance Collaboration Server framework eliminates the complexity of creating services and service-oriented solutions, by enabling you to reuse what you already know about creating standard software components.
