In addition to the list Michael provided, add Sun Microsystems Forte Fusion
and new product offerings from BEA, IBM and Microsoft. I think they are
called BEA WebLogic Integration Product, IBM WebSphere Commerce Suite &
MQIntegrator, and Microsoft BizTalk and .NET If I remember correctly
Accenture uses webMethods and Vitria but I may be wrong so it wouldn't hurt
to check with consulting firms.
Trying to weed out what product is best and what the product actually is -
EAI, B2B or Application Server - is very hard. If you are looking at
database integration you also need to research Oracle and Software AG. A
lot of homework!!
The best recommendation I can make is to start small - very small. I was
recently at "big telecommunications giant" and they were starting EAI with 2
workflow business processes and only two applications in addition to a
front- and back-end for Phase I.
Another place to do homework is at conferences. There is XML DevCon in NY
and Software Development (SD) 2001 West in San Jose in April, XML One in
Chicago in May, and many many more.

Subject: EAI and XML?
I hope this doesn't get posted twice(I sent it about 6
hours ago and it hasn't shown up yet).
I'm looking for anything that might point out how to
use XML as the foundation of an Enterprise Application
