How Open Source ESB/Web Service Mediation products(Mule) different from MOM(Message Oriented Middleware) and EAI(Enterprise Application Integration) ? Looks both are connecting/integrating legacy systems with Web applications.

Any update ? Whether MOM and EAI are same ? If not, Tibco EMS and IBM MqSeries Workflow belongs to MOM (or) EAI ?

Well thats a pretty general question but I will take a stab at parts of it.

MOM - Message Oriented Middleware is the oldest and most basic concept. It simply envisions coordination between applications/corporate entites/whatever as being handled by passing message indirectly through a "middleware" server capable of store and forward and publsh/subscribe message distribution.

A number of vendors have been doing MOM for quite some time, IBM for example. The Java Message Service API and implementation have been around also.

To quote Wikipedia:
Enterprise Application Integration is an integration framework composed of a collection of technologies and services which form a middleware to enable integration of systems and applications across the enterprise.


So - EAI could build on top of MOM with a more formal framework or it could build on any other communication protocol.

In my humble opinion, the same concepts keep getting repackaged by the marketing department again and again.
