Middleware is a crucial component of modern IT infrastructure forming part of object-oriented client/server Internet (OCSI) environment Definition: Middleware is a set of common business-unaware services that enable applications and end users to interact with each other across a network. In essence, middleware is the software that resides above the network and below the business-aware application software. The services provided by these routines are available to the applications through application programming interfaces (APIs) and to the human users through commands and/or graphical user interfaces (GUIs). A common example of middleware is e-mail because it provides business-unaware services that reside above networks and interconnect users (in several cases applications also). Other examples are groupware products (e.g., Lotus Notes), Web browsers, Web gateways, SQL gateways, Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) packages, remote procedure call (RPC) packages, and "distributed object servers" such as CORBA.

Middleware is the software that connects software components or enterprise applications. Middleware is the software layer that lies between the operating system and the applications on each side of a distributed computer network (Figure 1-1). Typically, it supports complex, distributed business software applications. Middleware is the infrastructure which facilitates creation of business applications, and provides core services like concurrency, transactions, threading, messaging, and the SCA framework for service-oriented architecture (SOA) applications. It also provides security and enables high availability functionality to your enterprise. Middleware includes Web servers, application servers, content management systems, and similar tools that support application development and delivery. It is especially integral to information technology based on Extensible Markup Language (XML), Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP), Web services, SOA, Web 2.0 infrastructure, and Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP)m etc. **Figure 1-1 Middleware Architecture** The graphic provides a general overview of Middleware Description of "Figure 1-1 Middleware Architecture" Due to continued growth and use of network-based applications by businesses, middleware technologies are increasingly important. Companies and organizations are now building enterprisewide information systems by integrating previously independent applications with new software developments. The integration process may involve legacy applications which may be used only with, or through a nonmodifiable interface. In some cases, rewriting the code for a legacy application may be cost-prohibitive. Increasingly, information systems are composed of a collection of various specialized hardware devices interconnected by a network. Each device performs a function that involves receipt of real time data and remote interaction with other devices of the system. Some examples include computer networks, telecommunication systems, uninterrupted power supply units, and decentralized manufacturing units. Interaction with the information system may span a wide range of performance. You can interact with Internet applications through a variety of devices, whose characteristics and performance figures span an increasingly wide range. Between a high performance personal computer, a smart telephone, and a personal digital assistant, the variations in bandwidth, local processing power, screen capacity, and the ability to display color pictures, are extremely large.

What Is Middleware? Middleware is computer software that provides services to software applications beyond those available from the operating system. It can be described as "software glue".[1] Middleware makes it easier for software developers to perform communication and input/output, so they can focus on the specific purpose of their application.

What Is Middleware? Middleware is a general term for software that serves to "glue together" separate, often complex and already existing, programs. Some software components that are frequently connected with middleware include enterprise applications and Web services. Middleware often sits between the operating system and applications on different servers and simplifies the development of applications that leverage services from other applications. This allows programmers to create business applications without having to custom craft integrations for each new application. Typically, middleware programs providemessaging services so that different applications can communicate using messaging frameworks like Simple Object Access Protocol(SOAP), Web services, Representational State Transfer (REST) and JavaScript Object Notation (JSON). The systematic tying together of disparate applications, often through the use of middleware, is known as enterprise application integration (EAI). At a basic level, middleware provides services required to connect applications together such as concurrency, transaction management, threading and messaging. More sophisticated implementations of middleware principles are baked into modern integration infrastructure such as enterprise service bus (ESB) and API management software to provide greater governance, risk management and accountability. Some common types of middleware products include messaging middleware, database middleware and application server middleware.

Software that facilitates exchange of data between two application programs within the same environment, or across different hardware and network environments. Three basic types of middleware are (1) communication middleware, (2) database middleware, and (3) system middleware.
