Hi there. We are currently using I.S. 4.6, ES 5.0.1. and WebSphere for Java/J2EE applications. We are planning an upgrade/migration to v6…eventually.
What are the recommendations on messaging between a J2EE app server and webMethods ? We have considered the following options:
- Use the Broker Client API to publish/wait webMethods docs, and have ES subscribe to these docs, gather data, and return response doc.
- Create xml request msg and send to I.S. via Http(s) post, IS receives xml, gathers data, returns xml reply.
- Pass messages via queues (eg. Mq Series, JMS).
I’m thinking option #2 fits better with the v6 architecture. We have some new projects starting up and we want to make our recommendation. I know that either approach will work in v6 but is anyone doing this now ? Any comments ?
