Data integration layer - how to?

Hi,
I am looking at designing a solution that�ll help a template front-end to talk to any back-end system. I have read about JMI, MOF and UIF etc but not sure which one is right for the job.
I won�t be talking to databases directly but will have the external application expose services (for CRUD) that I�ll use to populate the data required by the front end from those different systems.
Any ideas will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks a mil,
jR

"jR" -

Welcome to the JavaRanch! We don't have many rules around the ranch, but we do have a policy on displayed names... Please adjust your displayed name to meet the JavaRanch Naming Policy. User names cannot be obviously fake and must consist of a first name and a last name.

You can change your user name here.

Thanks! and welcome to the JavaRanch!

Sorry, but "jRoy" still doesn't meet the naming policy...

I'm not that familiar with the frameworks you mentioned - but from doing some quick googling, it seems that JMI (Java Metadata Interface) is Sun's Java implementation of the MOF (Meta-Object Facility) OMG standard, so they seem to be kind of the same thing. I can't seem to find anything with the acronym "UIF" that fits with the other things you mentioned...

Hi Nathan,
That is my real name, J is the abriv for my first name and Roy IS my surname. Do you think it needs chaning again? I can understand jR was a little ambiguous but jRoy should be fine.
Let me know if you still think that way and I'll pick a ficticious name.
cheers,
jR

PS: JMI and MOF are definately required for the solution but I needed some more help.

Yes, the naming policy is to be your real first name (no initials), a space, and your real last name (no initials). Like my real first name is Mark, and my real last name is Spritzler, so my JavaRanch name is Mark Spritzler.

Thanks

Mark
