I got a call a last week from Dave, a consultant in our financial services group and someone I've not seen or heard from in quite a long time. His challenge? He's working with a customer who wants to use Tibco EMS to move SOAP messages between .NET clients and J2EE servers. Simon and I have tackled this challenge, both for MQSeries and MSMQ. I promised Dave that he'd have a solution working in four-to-five days and pointed him to Simon's MQSeries transport on GotDotNet. Dave and I spoke again at length last Friday, and then again yesterday and wouldn't you know that within four days, he is sending and receiving SOAP messages over Tibco EMS!
