The client is looking to develop a core tools development framework to augment its automated environment provisioning capabilities. The Framework will focus on core services such as IBM webseal, Autosys, identity provisioning, bladelogic, database clients etc. The framework will consist of identifying various interfaces for these tools and develop these interfaces in tools' native API. These API may be available in Java, Perl, REST, or Webservices. After developing these interfaces, these interfaces should be exposed as webservices for other automation engines to consume.
