Our plans for e-commerce are to outsource the development and hosting of our
web site to a third-party firm.  This will allow our inhouse staff to
concentrate on handling the interface data going to and from the web site,
and to develop and run the  backend transaction processing on our AS/400's.

My feeling about the transaction processing is that we must make sure that
they perform well and that we should try to save every possible second,
otherwise the customer will move on to another web site.  I am considering
processing the interface data with data queues and using "never-ending" RPG
IV (ILE) procedures to both modularize the processes and optimize the work.
We are also looking to use a "canned" product such as MQSeries to handle the
interface data.

Any feedback (positive and negative!) about this approach would be
appreciated, since I feel that we must architect our e-commerce application
correctly.  Any other approaches that might be better would be appreciated
also.

Thanks,  Bill
