    Middleware supports application integration.  Middleware provides Internet commerce implementation products and network transport infrastructure packaged products.  Products provide infrastructure, secure enterprise application integration (EAI), and systems management.  Growth of Internet markets and demand for supply-chain connectivity are primary middleware and EAI market drivers.  Significant market opportunity exists as $500 million markets in 1997 are growing at rates that will permit markets to reach $13.7 billion by 2002.     Middleware and EAI systems use a message queuing layer in servers and host systems to ease application development.  Messaging packages provide interfaces that connect Internet applications with legacy and distributed systems.  EAI packages provide routing, formatting and transformation of information between SAP, Peoplesoft, Oracle, and other applications and databases.  Enterprise-wide mission critical messaging is achieved via middleware.
