Most EAI vendors claim they've now changed to fit into an SOA/ESB model. Are there any that stand out for you as having made significant changes? What do you see as critical changes classic EAI software needed to make to qualify as an ESB?

Most of the traditional EAI vendors don't do SOA well. It's the issue around service- vs. information-oriented integration. They are very different notions, and most older integration technology was set up for information integration.

ESB is nothing more than a queuing system with Web services interfaces, thus most can qualify as an ESB if they have those components.
