In this paper, the authors described an approach to Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) using extensible Web services. The approach is demonstrated by building a real-world application for EAI in the financial services domain. Its main purpose is to integrate the various web services together and also assess the routing technique using load balancing and clustering mechanisms for various distributed applications. The manifestation of Web services in general and their role in EAI are discussed next. Financial services domain characteristics are presented. Business drivers that entail a strong need for functional extensibility in the financial services domain are described. Their proposed architecture for EAI which addresses functional extensibility is described.
