RE: Why XML for Messaging?
And that means the RFPs are ahead of the market. Not a bad thing necessarily for the folks selling the soon-to-be commodities but problematic for the mid tier vendors bidding them. Out of sync. Again, as you say, put custom formats or the ISO formats front and center. Just as info, keep in mind that some of the edge pieces run on batteries. Benchmark web services. This is possibly a good paper for someone at a future XML conference: "Configuring XML and Web Services for Performance in Large Integrated Real Time C3 Systems". Since that can be competition-sensitive, it might not be seen for awhile. len From: Derek Denny-Brown [mailto:derekdb@m...] COTS only applies when the market has entered commodity mode. XML messaging has a ways to go before it is a commodity. The current SOAP vs REST debate demonstrates that. If it were a commodity, there would be no space for such debate. Buying COTS XML acceleration today is akin to buying SGML COTS software 5-10 years ago... it exists, but it targets vertical markets. When it moves out of the vertical markets into the mass markets, then it will be commodity. There are excellent options available, but don't expect any of them to be around in any recognizable form in 5 years.
