I wish you can share your experience about it with me. I was asked to conduct a quick research. The topic is about the message transformation. I need to compare the message transformation (either XSLT or ESB is fine) between webMethods Mediator/IS and IBM Websphere Message Broker. I need to give recommendation of which product to use in what scenarios.
I read the product features. I realized that both products offer the same/similar functionalities (e.g. message routing, transformation, service proxy, service virtualization). My thinking is that IBM Message Broker is popular in the EAI space while Mediator/IS tends to focus on SOA/WS.
As both products can handle message transformation by XSLT or ESB, my position is that for EAI projects (involving pub-sub), use IBM Message Broker. Use Mediator/IS to handle transformation for SOA projects or web service calls.
What is your take?
