Communications middleware?

» close window

The Question is:

I am in charge of a VAX application (VAXA) that communicates with another
VAX application (VAXB) via DEC mailboxs. The VAXB application is beig
replaced with a Windows NT solution (VAX2NT).  I still need to transmit
transactional data in real time to the
VAX2NT application.  Which tools are available to perform such a task.
Assume that the VAX2NT app will not be using DecMessageQ.

The Answer is :

  IP and DECnet are available, or the RTR or various other middleware
  packages (other than BEA MessageQ)...  Depending on the environment,
  RPC, DCE and COM could also be options...
