Hi i am having 2.5 years of working experience in Java & j2EE as a developer ,now in my company i have been asked to move to EAI(Enterprise Application Integration). I dont know anything about EAI will this migration from JAVA & J2EE to EAI will help or DO i need to stick with JAVA & J2EE. Since this is a recession time i am very confused please help on this
EAI stands for Enterprise Application Integration. EAI is a good skill to have in addition to your Web development skills using Java/JEE. Many large companies need to integrate with disparate systems. There are many Java/JEE based websites that source data in real time from Legacy systems via integration technologies.
-- what tools/framworks/products you will be using in EAI? -- what will you be integrating? -- Will it require Java/JEE skills set? [ December 04, 2008: Message edited by: arulk pillai ]
EAI work does not involve much coding as you use some EAI tool to do that.But its challenging from design/architecture point of view.Based on requirements, EAI might involve lot of Java programming too.

Webmethods/Tibco are good tools and generally used by big clients in financial/retail sector who generally have many legacy applications.Till recently EAI tools were in demand.Current slump/high cost of these tools have reduced the demand. Working on these tools definitely add value to your resume.
