SaaS applications serve users in many organizations from a single application instance running in a cloud. Common SaaS requirements include: customization including hiding and adding fields, managing boilerplate text & influencing the look & feel and a Service API for retrieving and manipulating data as well as allowing registration of listeners – applications outside the cloud that are notified by the SaaS application of events. Deep link navigation into the SaaS application allows visual integration with local applications.
Connexys provides a SaaS application (150+ customers) to support human resource and recruitment processes. The Connexys NextGen application is developed on Fusion Middleware using ADF. The application has an impressive number of specific SaaS enhancements (some inspired by Salesforce.com) that make it a compelling & competitive SaaS offering.

One remarkable thing: Last year, Oracle was the platinum sponsor of JavaOne 2008. This year, Oracle acquired Sun (or at least made a deal with Sun’s board of directors). Whether they are now short on cash and could not afford the sponsorship or whether through Sun Oracle will be visible all the same or whatever the reason is: Oracle is not a sponsor and apparently is not even on the Java Pavilion. So Big Red, who swallowed BEA with the WebLogic, Aqualogic and Plumtree products, Collaxa/BPEL, Coherence DataGrid, EclipseLink, Apache Trinidad, … , is not very visible. I noticed a few presentations by Oracle speakers, so there is some presence but it is minimal.
So who are the big sponsors? (more…)
