AS 400 VS XI

In the olden days, like AS-400 era we have Initiators (The Thread) and also in the Job Control Language we can assign the Priority of that particular job, high or medium or low and that will assign the appropriate que and it will be processed.

But in the modern days like XI I feel they unnecessarily talk about various engines and complicate the stuffs. Still the Ques are not functioning properly even after assigning the High, medium, low(as this is going to help only inside the Integration Engine), then the basis need to work on the number of threads and I belive the recent technologies are not that powerful like AS-400 or IBM Mainframe for sure

    I dont agree with you pete. Even you can prioritize your queues in XI also. Yes I agree with you that we can do that only at integration engine level and not at the adapter level. But still if you want more efficiency I would suggest to have high end hardware and clustering concepts. These would also increase your efficiency.

    We cannot compare like the old technolgies with the new ones because you are looking at only one point but there are 'n' number of points in which XI is better than them. I hope you will agree with me.

      Hey Pete

      yes i agree with you that we cant prioritize the messages at adapter engine level yet,but just coz of few things we cant simply scarp a tool,XI is gradually improving,they had XI 2.0 which had no BPM,all sync scenario were split into two separate async scenario,then came up XI 3.0 which has lots of good stuffs,and they are still releasing SP to make the product better.

      i have seen a blog where it has been mentioned that PI7.1 will have the capability to bypas IS ,which means all message mapping and routing will be performed at Adapter engine level.every tool has some hiccups and same holds for XI too.
