Documentum introduced Documentum eContent Services for Portals, the portal-specific deliverable of their recently-announced Documentum Web services initiative. Documentum eContent Services for Portals reduce the need to create new programming interfaces and integration code for enterprise portal implementation. Building on the Documentum 4i eBusiness Platform, these services employ Documentum eContent Portlets to create a way to expose content management functionality through an enterprise portal. Documentum has pre-packaged the most significant and common content management functions, such as content contribution, browsing, and workflow management. These services, called eContent Portlets, will be delivered as Java Server pages, Java classes, and XML files to be exposed through the portal interface. Documentum will offer a Portal Integration Kit to guide portal builders who will integrate Documentum eContent Portlets with portal deployments. Portal providers will leverage Documentum eContent Services for Portals. Among the first adopters are: ATG, BEA Systems, Bowstreet, Citrix, Corechange, DataChannel, Epicentric, Plumtree Software, SAP Portals, Inc., iPlanet, E-Commerce Solutions, a Sun Netscape Alliance and TIBCO. www.documentum.com/products/editions/portal/portlets.html
