My interview with Frank Martinez, CTO of Blue Titan software is now available at IT conversations. I had some good conversations with Frank in NY in May about Web Services protocols and thought others might enjoy hearing his thoughts about them as well. I was particularly intrigued that Blue Titan was actually using things like WS-Policy inside its software, not just talking about how they might be used, or enabling their use by others. Frank maintains that the architecture of his middleware platform eats its own dog food and is built using the same technologies it enables.
As Doug explains in the editor's note, this isn't a light introduction to the topic of Web services middleware. We pretty much dove right in. Even so, I think you'll find it interesting and understandable if you're familiar with Web services and the idea of Web services middleware.
