Overview <ul><li>Middleware is connectivity software
Cont... Middleware services provide a more functional set of API than OS and network services to allow an application to – Locate transparently across the network, providing interaction with other application or service Be independent from network services.
IBM services in middleware <ul><li>IBM offers the following middleware services:
* IBM IT Lifecycle Management and Governance Services
* IBM Information on Demand Infrastructure Services
* IBM Infrastructure Optimisation Services </li></ul>
B enefits # Increase business flexibility and decrease IT complexity # Reduce the costs of business integration # Simplify integration through IBM lifecycle methodologies and tool expertise # Improve the management of infrastructures
Cont... * Improve time to value and make the most of existing technology skills * Increase visibility and improve management and quality of IT services * Create an IT infrastructure designed to address regulatory requirements * Increase the value of existing IT investments * Enhance information availability, quality and value
Uses... Middleware services provide a more functional set of API to allow an application to: * Locate transparently across the network, thus providing interaction with another service or application * Be independent from network services * Be reliable and always available * Add complementary attributes like semantics
Remote procedure call <ul><li>An inter-process communication
Allows a computer program to cause a subroutine or procedure to execute in another address space without the programmer
Explicitly coding the details for this remote interaction. </li></ul>

Message passing in RPC <ul><li>An RPC is initiated by the client
sends a request message to a known remote server to execute a specified procedure with supplied parameters.
The remote server sends a response to the client,
the application continues its process. </li></ul>
ORB It is a piece of middleware software that allows programmers to make program calls from one computer to another via a network.
ORB Client Application Remote Service (Object) ORB Locate service Activate service communicate Establish connection
MOM <ul><li>MOM is a client / server infrastructure which allows the application to be distributed over multiple heterogeneous platforms.
Reduces complexity of applications spanning operating systems and network protocols by insulating them from un-necessary details. </li></ul>
cont.. <ul><li>Data is exchanged by message passing and/or message queuing
Providing the directory, security, and administrative services required to support messaging. </li></ul>

My conclusion Middleware is independent of network services While creating mashup we need to use app server for connecting the browser and client So there may be a chance of bottlenecks For this reason middleware is best for mashup techinques
