Combining short code snippets and an ongoing example developed throughout the book, it shows readers how to build simple and efficient J2EE applications, how to solve persistence problems, handle asynchronous messaging, create and consume remote services, build web applications, and integrate with most popular web frameworks. Readers will learn how to use Spring to write simpler, easier to maintain code so they can focus on what really matters-- critical business needs.

Spring Integration is a Java-based enterprise integration framework that provides a lightweight alternative to more traditional ESBs. By merging the "Enterprise Integration Patterns" outlined by Hohpe and Woolf (Addison Wesley, 2003) with the programming model of the Spring framework, Spring Integration is remarkably powerful and yet easy to use.
Spring Integration in Action is a hands-on guide to Spring-based messaging and integration. After addressing the core messaging patterns, the book turns to the adapters that enable integration with external systems. Readers will explore real-world enterprise integration scenarios using JMS, Web Services, file systems, and email.
