It may not be the favorable alternative, but, very often, the alternative to application integration is the large-scale applications rewrite. Such rewrites, for example, redo .NET applications as Java ones, or vice versa. This very often turns into a very drawn out process. ... Instead [of rewriting the .Net code in Java], Libis used Mainsoft's Portal Edition to cross-compile .NET code into JSR-168 compliant portlets that run natively on WebSphere Portal.
This case study describes how a large organization opted for integrating .Net and Java applications rather than going through a long and painful rewrite. The decisions they made allowed them to complete a project managing $20B is pensions in four months, and they had to rewrite less than 0.5% of the code.

Looks good to some extent when you have .net based portlets you can use Mainsoft's MainWin portal edition to migrate to java. But i have a doubt that the organization who wants to shift there Sharepoint application to websphere/weblogic based or JSR168 portlets then dont you think that the product will add an extra cost? Does the product will convert the IPC (within .net framework) to IPC (JSR168/Java based)? If yes ,then all good :-) ~lokesh http://lokeshpant.blogspot.com
