searchWebServices.com: WSEdge 2002: WebSphere chief says Web services movement just beginning "Ferguson: At Lotusphere this year, [Lotus] announced a whole product roadmap for Domino. But the simple answer is no, WebSphere is never going to engulf Domino. WebSphere is an application server. It allows people to build and integrate applications. One of the applications WebSphere is going to interoperate with is Domino. ... Lotus does have a plan for reengineering some of Domino so that it is more pegged on J2EE and Java, and any product that powerful does go through reengineering eventually. But there are collaborative application elements that WebSphere is never going to do. It's going to rely on Domino. So no, WebSphere will never get into the collaborative application space."
