After completing the previous task, we have a Message Broker that is capable of implementing the RTD interchange pattern in the form of a hub-and-poke controller. Although it is perfectly operational, you have to add a little to the demonstrated code snippets to create a production version. Its practical application is limited by assumptions we made at the beginning of this exercise. Let's repeat the assumptions again:
Limited number of protocols.
Limited number of message validation techniques.
Limited ways of message transformation (XSLT is preferable).
Relatively elaborate ways of implementing new delivery options and any pluggable modules in general.
To make the situation more dramatic, as you remember, we even implemented a custom rule engine (although this argument is weak as...
