MobileInfo Comments and Advisory: While there are a number of middleware suppliers in the Microsoft and IBM-centric messaging backends (Exchange and Lotus Notes), there are only a few in the Sun world. You need the middleware and also the professional services to implement. BASIs and Defywire is a good combination in the  currently-cloudy Sun world.
