Coexistence of a great number of various heterogeneous-configured information systems due to characteristics of trans-regional and grouping enterprises has resulted in great difficulty in information interaction and interoperability among the enterprises' systems. So it is an urgent challenge that a breakthrough should be made with the regional constraint on the enterprise's information system for seamless integration and information resources sharing. This paper first describes the traditional application integration solution based on Common Object Request Broker Architecture (CORBA) and Distributed Component Object Model (DCOM) which has the shortcomings of close coupling and constrains imposed by the developer firms, then proposes an operation mode of the printing factory-centered virtual printing-enterprise based on the Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) and Web service technologies. With the detail analysis of the application integration framework building of the virtual printing-enterprise, the corresponding realization methods are presented. Finally, a case of application integration is presented to demonstrate the methods' feasibility and effectiveness in accomplishing application integration of virtual printing-enterprise.
