Seamless Integration leveraging APS 2.0
We are excited to be part of the select few who are invited to the APS 2.0 Beta, and to be working hands on with the upgraded feature set.
The APS 2.0 controller scheduled to be part of the Parallels Automation 5.5 release, completely revamps the way application packaging is done when compared to its predecessor APS 1.2. APS 2.0 facilitates a more seamless integration of applications into the Parallels eco-system, and the possibilities that are offered by this level of communication among related services are endless. We identify the following two feature upgrades to be the game changers,
To leverage the recent changes in User interface design and development, APS 2.0 introduces the ability to develop Custom UI for your applications with the help of HTML 5, JQuery, Dojo Toolkit - greatly enhancing the user experience. With this change in place, providers are not restricted to the pre-defined buttons, text boxes and drop downs that are automatically populated with the hierarchical package definition.
Developers now have the freedom to introduce dynamic controls like use charts, sliders, within their package UI, along with the functional support that facilitates the flow exception messages and custom error messages embedded within the UI.
Service Bus & Single Sign-on:
Service bus controller is an architectural upgrade introduced in APS 2.0, leveraging which one can utilize the resources defined as types within other APS packages installed locally in the PA environment. This allows service providers to combine solutions from different packages, and provide a seamless experience to their customer. This controller will be the central communication system for resources of all APS packages within PA.
Another functional change that’s part of APS 2.0 is the ability to support single sign on and multifactor authentication for all APS applications, with help of the pluggable APS authentication protocol.
While we continue to explore the 2.0 standard, we continue to keep you posted on what it has to offer – so, stay tuned!
