Middleware is connectivity software
Consists of a set of enabling services
Allow multiple processes running on one or more machines to interact with each other
Middleware services are sets of distributed software
The service that exist between the application and the operating system and network services on a system node in the network
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
IBM offers the following middleware services:
* IBM SOA Integration Services
* IBM IT Lifecycle Management and Governance Services
* IBM Information on Demand Infrastructure Services
* IBM Infrastructure Optimisation Services
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(RPC)
Message oriented middleware(MOM)
Object request brokers(ORBs)
Transaction Processing (TP) monitors.
Remote procedure call
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.

Message passing in RPC
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.
Is a set of information which process the data transaction in database system
monitors transaction programs
The processing in a TPS must support an organization's operations
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 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.
Data is exchanged by message passing and/or message queuing
Providing the directory, security, and administrative services required to support messaging.

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
