What are the criteria for EAI Software Checklist?

EAI represents Enterprise Application Integration. It supports an integrated method to connecting the multiple components of the IT framework- people, software, platforms, and databases to allow secure, intra and inter-enterprise collaboration.

EAI solutions allow an organization to integrate business procedures internally and externally with business partners to make dynamic environments that provide current and deriving business requirements, thereby generating a universal organization. There are several criteria for the EAI software checklist which are as follows −

Topology Independence − The structure to choose for linking an integrated process depends on several factors like performance, timing requirement, event coordination, etc.

Support for Multiple Operating Systems − Business processes are needed to be platform-independent. Therefore the EAI software must be flexible enough to implement the process on any platform.

Support for Multiple Middleware Systems − The EAI software should target the business process and not the basic technology that is used to share the data. EAI software supports pre-constructed adaptability for all middleware elements, like MOM; publish/subscribe middleware, and ORB.

Connectivity to Databases and Files − The EAI software should provide not only message routing but also provides direct access to databases, files, email systems, etc. without separate steps i.e., it should be an element of the integrated process.

Content-based Application Adapters − The EAI software should not only create and maintain the adapters from software metadata but also support descriptions with semantics and syntax, removing the need for coding.

Process Flow Control − The EAI application should support a graphical environment to define the processes and also must have supplies for acknowledging events, trigger execution, logically routing data, and providing transactional integrity across the whole integration scheme.

Event Coordination and Management − Real-time events triggering business processes have to be checked and managed to provide that they achieve a coordinated result. The software should also contain a run time environment, which provides active listening, event coordination, and multithreaded processing.

Integration without Programming − EAI software must manage the difficulty of the Business process integration by itself without resorting to hand-coding.

High Performance − As a business process contains high transaction volumes or difficult rules, the EAI software must avoid bottlenecks and should have characteristics like multi-threading and multi-processing along with performance monitoring tools.

Proven Implementation − The EAI software must be proven and in use by different users to minimize risk, as business process integration is a mission-demanding task.
