The need to cost-effectively integrate existing and deploy new applications has created a need for Application Data Routers (ADRs). The abstraction of XML processing, management, and policy enforcement from Web services platforms to ADRs provides a cost-effective means to access, move and track Web services throughout growing enterprises. The purpose of this paper is to examine the impact of XML on network infrastructure and the emergence of Application Data Router (also referred to as Web Services Management) solutions.
