p.s. the answer to #4 is webMethods

Greg, I notice that your public profile has “EAI Principal Architect” as your title. Can you share your thoughts on the distinctions between EAI and B2B?

I contend that the differences are now all but meaningless…

Sure! I will spin it up as a separate thread under your webMethods architecture section as soon as i get a chance to pen something up. I suspect our views are a bit different on the subject, which will make the discussion fun!

BTW, i meant ‘webMethods’ is the answer to #5, not #4 (above).

You can get a preview of my thoughts in this thread.

Thanks! Not sure i want to read your thoughts before i jot down some of my own ideas on the subject. Sorry for the delay - my project is in crunch time and i suspect it will be about a two pager; don’t worry, i haven’t forgotten it!

Hi,

Thanks very much for this comment. It help me to think about my ideals.

Tks again and pls keep posting.

Well, sure! not certain how this became a springboard for your ideas, but i am always happy to incite thought :slight_smile:

I am still here, but probably less than 50% of the projects that i take are wM related; things on the webMethods front have slowed down considerably here in Denver.

what’s the object name used to put text message into a queue

Sorry Balaash, there is no way to answer this question; it is too vague. It almost sounds like you are talking about MQSeries, not webMethods. For the best chance of getting your question answered, carefully write up the details of what you are trying to accomplish using as much webMethods terminology as you know, and then post your question to the wMUsers discussion forum that is the closest related to your question. (Very likely it is not the wM EAI Interview Questions thread) :wink:
