BusinessObjects Web Services Integration
This presentation was given by Michael Brown and Scot Nesom at the Business Objects 2007 Developer Conference. An SOA (service oriented architecture) approach was decided by our application services department. This approach using .Net web services that integrates with the Business Objects web services allows for true application integration. Embedding project specific reports hosted within Business Objects Enterprise dynamically allows for end-users the flexibility to launch reports directly from their application interfaces. Either through web applications or thick clients, web services calls are made with re-useable code targeted to specific audiences. Single source security( Active Directory) leveraged by Business Objects is utilized by each project based on AD groups at the folder(s) level, ensuring user permissions are maintained.
