I yapped about Message-Centric vs. Service-Centric a month or so ago.
As I tried to get going on the Yahoo REST message board and in various posts in this blog, this is where I'd like to see things go. Leverage HTTP, but add:
- guaranteed delivery
- durable destinations
- event driven support (i.e., pub/sub)
Now, I have no idea if Blue Titan even does this (I haven't used it) - it sounds like it does some of this or will. Anyone worked with it?
Ideally, I'd like to see OSS impls or at least dual licensing of this type of thing. This type of infrastructure is too critical to rely on a small vendor for. I can't afford another vendor-pire.
