Collaboration Portlets for MS Exchange Announced

I am proud to announce JSR 168 complaint collaborative portlets for MS Exchange Server on behalf of my company Yash Technologies, Inc. Seeing the dearth of JSR 168 compliant portlets, I hope that our portlets will prove landmark in portal evolution. Here is the press release -

Yash Announces SyncEx Collaboration Suite & API for MS Exchange

Yash Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of enterprise portal solutions, announced the release of SyncEx Collaboration Portlets for use by enterprise customers worldwide. The new offering gives Enterprise Portal customers the ability to integrate Microsoft Exchange emails, appointments, contacts, tasks into their portals quickly and easily. The SyncEx Portlets are JSR 168 complaint and can be deployed on any JSR168 portal server. Presently, SyncEx is coming with ready versions that work seamlessly on all popular J2EE portal servers such as IBM WebSphere Portal, BEA Weblogic Portal, eXo Portal and Liferay Enterprise Portal. Yash lab is also testing SyncEx Portlets for SunOne, Vignette, Jetspeed, JBoss, and Oracle Portal Server.

The key benefit to many enterprises would be to minimize the total cost of ownership (TCO) as these portlets would eliminate the need for having an email client software and provide access dynamically through Web Access. In addition, the SyncEx Portlets ship with a fully customizable Collaboration API for enabling additional integration specific to business requirements. With the introduction of this API, developers can build powerful collaborative applications that leverage Microsoft Exchange, with the same ease of use, time-saving, and reduced-cost benefits offered by SyncEx Collaboration Suite.

    when you have some time on your hands I would be interested in hearing the challenges while developing such portlets with jsr 168. I am of the opinion that JSR 168 is still at a very nascent stage and to build complex interactions requires a lot of manual effort.

  2. Contrary to general belief, it was quite easy and straight-forward to develop SyncEx JSR 168 Portlets. We are soon planning to publish our experiences with the development of SyncEx Collaboration Suite.

    Nice. Do these portlets provide all functionalities of an Outlook client for MS Exchange Server?

  4. Hi George,

    It would not be a good idea to compare a thin client application (web) with a fat client application (desktop). But I must say that SyncEx Collaboration Portlets are probably the most comprehensive collabortive portlets available in market.
