nice to see you here again.
But I've been working with BIE for awhile now
(http://www.brunswickwdi.com/bie) which is an integration engine we use
for a variety of purposes. I'm curious if it is possible to use
xmlBlaster in conjunction with BIE since the two seem nicely
complementary and together would almost make a complete workflow system.
I'd like to subscribe BIE to xmlBlaster message delivery. But xmlBlaster
doesn't seem to support SOAP quite yet, which can be used to invoke what
BIE calls 'routes' (chains of actions). BIE also support HTTP POST/GET
and JMS (see below). But I'm not terribly familiar with JMS and
xmlBlaster doesn't seem to offer a mechanism for providing HTTP POST
delivery. Does anyone see a possible mechanism to simply connect these
If you have some spare days it shouldn't be too complicated
to add a SOAP protocol plugin to xmlBlaster.
I you are going to do it i will assist you for any questions
BIE's JMS Listener - "Each workflow is represented is represented by a
queue. To recieve a response from the workflow, the reply to header must
-Initial Context Factory: org.jnp.interfaces.NamingContextFactory
-Queue Connection Factory: UIL2ConnectionFactory"
Probably the existing JMS implementation for xmlBlaster (from Michele)
can already handle it, you could give it a try. Be prepared to add
this or that missing code snippet.
BIE's HTTP Listener - "The HTTP/HTTPS listener runs the administration
console, web services engine, and HTTP GET/POST listeners. GET and POST
listeners reside at /listener/HTTPGet and /listener/HTTPPost, and
require parameters routeID and message to be specified."
