    I spent a year trying to convince a company I once worked for that SOA via a commercial entity was a Bad Idea ™ … funny enough – I convinced the software architect (after 1 year) … management on the other hand … puppies all the way …

    I just wanted Axis2/Active MQ/Synapse … everyone thought I was insane – and as usual – I figured I was normal (and everyone else was insane).

    Just before I left (principal was partially the reason) I had project managers telling me that the commercial solution was going to solve even code quality problems! Sales people sell and will tell you anything … I thought that was obvious to everyone?

    You know what Spock says about sanity…
