Chapter 15. Gateways and Connectors
15.1. Introduction to Gateways and Connectors
Not all clients interacting with the JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform will be able to understand its native protocols and message format. As such there is a need to be able to bridge between ESB-aware end-points (those that understand JBossESB) and ESB-unaware end-points (those that do not understand JBossESB). Such bridging technologies have existed for many years in a variety of distributed systems and are referred to as gateways and connectors.
