First post, so please be gentle :-)
I am looking at wrappering Zimbra as a Message Service in a SOA, using all the SOAP goodness to provide a business service to an ESB. On the other side of the ESB is my Presentation Service, a web app in which I am hoping to use parts of the Zimbra Web Client (folders, message views, zimlets etc.). Users log in, see their message inbox, read, file, respond etc. All passes back down to my Message Service via the ESB using SOAP calls etc.
- is this feasible?
- has anyone done this before and can they share pitfalls etc?
- how does message delivery work in this set up (assuming that a message is pushed to the Presentation Service by the ZCS)
- do I need to open up ports for IMAP etc on the ESB/firewall
Sorry its vague- if you want more details, I can try to explain further in this thread.
Thanks for your time
