Can someone please help me understand in what situations will the B2B Integration Server be used and in what other situations will the Enterprise Server be used? In what situations will both be required? Can they replace each other if compromises are acceptable?
Using webMethods Enterprise Server, I can create all types of adapters and connect to any interface (socket, CORBA, database), get data (in the form of subscribed events) and send data (in the form of published events). So what integration I cannot do with Enterprise Server that I can using B2B Integration Server?
As far as I know, B2B Integration Server does not have a messaging architecture. Its altogether different in that sense from Enterprise Server. Is this entirely/partially correct?
Is there a Adapter concept in B2B Integration Server also?
Also can the Enterprise Integrator tool used in conjuction with both B2B Integration Server and Enterprise Server? Does it serve as a “link” between B2B Integration Server and Enterprise Server? The GUI of Enterprise Integrator is similar to B2B Developer. Are these two (EI and B2B Developer) substitutes for each other?
Thanks in advance,
