Preface The Patterns for e-business are a group of proven, reusable assets that can be used to accelerate the design and development of e-business applications. This IBM® Redbook focuses on how to reuse the SOA Client - Access Integration patterns to extend enterprise applications to a wide range of client devices such as laptops, PDAs, and mobile phones. Part 1, "Introduction to client access solutions" on page 1, presents the client access solution domain, and benefits of using patterns. In addition, we introduce key technologies (programming models, device types, client and server technologies, mobile connectivity and Web technologies) to serve as a foundation for understanding the Access Integration patterns. Part 2, "SOA Client - Access Integration patterns" on page 59, guides the reader through the process of reusing the patterns assets within the context of the Rational® Unified Process® (RUP®) to accelerate the solution design. We include selection criteria to navigate from the Business and IT drivers to the appropriate Application pattern or patterns, and supporting Runtime pattern, component model, and Product mapping instantiated by IBM software products.
