EJB design: Middleware timeline

  1. Middleware timeline (1 messages)

    I'm putting together a timeline of middleware technologies.. specifically

    Legacy TP Monitors (CICS, Tuxedo)
    CORBA
    CORBA Components
    MTS
    COM+
    Microsoft.NET
    EJB

    I am looking for validation on the dates when each technology was introduced. Any data would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Ed,

    Some of these dates are going to be very fuzzy.

    CORBA Components is part of the CORBA3 spec which I do not think is done.

    EJB started at level 0.4 over 3 yrs ago. Do you want only EJB 1.0?

    The rough outline with no dates I believe would be

    TP Monitors
    CORBA
    EJB 0.4
    MTS
    EJB 1.0
    COM+
    EJB 1.1
    Microsoft .NET

    Off the top of my head.
