I have moved the old Middleware article, on the more specific subject of middleware in distributed applications, to the new article "Middleware (distributed applications)". This article is a more general discussion of the term middleware, which is used in other senses as well.Paul Foxworthy (talk) 21:34, 9 February 2012 (UTC)
I do not agree with the proposal to merge the Message Broker article into Middleware. Middleware is a very broad subject that deserves its own category or portal. Message Brokering (as the article should perhaps be named) is just one subject in this category. Mydoghasworms (talk) 05:12, 10 January 2013 (UTC)
"The QNX operating system offers middleware for providing multimedia services for use in automobiles, aircraft and other envien middleware system standard designed by the DVB project for interactive digital television. The MHP enables the reception and execution of interactive, Java-based applications on a television set."
This bullet-point appears to "run on". "QNX" and "DVB" are separate bullets?

The term has been invented to address the software layer between operating systems and applications in distributed systems (see http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2768.txt). The view of the author of the two cited "definitions" (one cites the other) is not reliable. --188.8.131.52 (talk) 09:52, 16 August 2013 (UTC)
- Oppose I have seen the term used by industry. This article does need more references.Frmorrison (talk) 17:23, 30 August 2013 (UTC)
- Oppose as I agree with Frmorrison and also because Google returns over ten million results. – voidxor (talk | contrib) 21:54, 31 August 2013 (UTC)
- Middleware is just an old buzzword that has since fallen out of favour but left a wake of marketing spiel and meaningless drivel behind it. It means absolutely nothing -- much like this article. If you read this article and don't come away feeling empty handed and asking yourself "what does that even mean?", you're almost certainly the kind of vacuous, platitude-loving, non-technical muppet that it was originally designed to impress. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 01:48, 15 April 2014 (UTC)
