WebSphere Business Integration Message Broker Would anyone know what this is used for - workflow engine or workflow processor ? Or several things? Thanx in advance. [ April 08, 2004: Message edited by: HS Thomas ]

Built on the Event Broker, IBM WebSphere Business Integration Message Broker transforms and enriches in-flight information for a further level of intermediation between applications that use different message structures and formats. In addition the Message Broker can be integrated with a database to perform message logging, data merge, and database update functions. If you are considering Web Services architectures and solutions, the broker can assist with integration of non-Web-Services applications, the routing and transformation of SOAP messages, and the logging of Web Services transactions. An improvement on point-to-point Web Services implementations that can lead to complex application interdependencies, the brokers help to improve control, simplify application development, lower maintenance costs, and increase flexibility. When combined with WebSphere MQ you gain essential reliability to web service.
