Some time ago I wrote: Composite Applications: Hype or Real ? Conclusion was - of course - REAL. During the SAP TechEd in Berlin there were 12 out of 309 sessions about Composites . And as we all know, at TechEd we learn what is/will be real. So again, composites are real ;-) Despite these signals, reality is that sometimes it is hard to explain to customers what Composites are and why they want to implement them. "Mashups, composites, Web2.0 is something for the internet not for my enterprise environment." Let me help you with this blog about two real life composites that we have developed for a utility customer. Real life as these applications are live since early 2008 and in use by the end customers and the call center of this company. Read more on my SDN blog on Real Life Composites .
