Our system integrates with a third party web service. We need to throttle the total number of web service connections across the enterprise to this service to 30. I mentioned to my boss the idea of setting up an NSB endpoint as a gateway to the web service. He liked the idea so much that he wants it to be a generic gateway that can be used to call any web service at any URL, instead of being specifically for integrating with this particular third party web service.
My intuition tells me this might be a bad idea, but I can’t quite figure out why.
Is the generic gateway a good idea? Why or why not?
