Actually we are creating enterprise Level hospital information system web application, and we are in process of deciding technology either platform like asp.net or tools like WebMethods which i think is based on java to ease our development. My specific concerns about webmethods/CAF are:
-Development speed will really reduce as compare to developing application using VS2008?
-Integrating with third party finance application like oracle apps etc.
-Rank the UI out of 10 comparing to asp.net.
-Performance in high volume data.
-Does it really very easy to do the Customization?
And you guys can understand that HIS contains very high volume of data and requires rich UI and customizations, so please tell me what you think about webmethods/CAF and other suggestions are welcome as well.
