Hello All,

I read a little about EAI and the tool webMethods. Can somebody throw some light on what exactly it is and how it's related to Web services?

Thanks in advance,
Kiran

EAI is Enterprise Application Integration, which is a fancy way of saying (iirc) the melding together of different enterprise-class applications for business purposes.

I'm hardly an expert, but what I've gleaned from looking at webMethods' website is that they're a company whose products manage EAI between different platforms. They seem to be involved on a high level with web services, and a quick scan over their website would possibly indicate that web services might very well be one of their major ways of leveraging EAI.

Web methods do boast a variety of products that are geared towards verticals(like finance, hr etc) and they also consist services group that solely works on implementing verticals + services for different industries.

ie they make their money with their services experience and product suite geared towards integration of different systems.
