Managing a complex IT infrastructure could be a challenging task for any enterprise, especially if it deals with multiple data sources and destinations. Besides, software compatibility issues are quite common these days due to the widespread use of diverse technologies and heterogeneous systems. To overcome heterogeneity challenges, we need a special type of software that adequately integrates diverse software systems while acting as an intermediary between two or more applications. Middleware is a reusable infrastructure software that fits perfectly in the above description as it bridges the gap between multiple applications. It is often referred to as ‘software glue’ that enables enterprises to interconnect almost any type of computing infrastructure.
Middleware application development has saved billions of dollars for enterprises that invested in this unique infrastructure rather than replacing or re-architecting their software systems. However, the choice of framework for middleware application development is equally important to ensure perfect synchronization between multiple applications. Apache Camel is one of the most sought-after frameworks for middleware application development that renders the best support message-oriented middleware.
