Hi guys,
I just wanted to know if you know anything about webMethods.
Is it a good framewok for systems integration?
Is it really used in the industry?

Any comment or opinion will be appreciated.

Thank you in advance.

Giovanni

It's an EAI tool. A medium sized player in a large market dominated by IBM, SeeBeyond and increasingly Microsoft.

It's technology is highly regarded, but as with most EAI tools they all will do the job if implemented correctly. I've heard of horror stories with Webmethod projects, but all to do with implementation rather than the product.

One issue is that because they are a smaller player, getting skilled staff is harder than with the larger vendors.
