Open-Source Esbs in Action


Open-Source Esbs in Action Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Most modern business systems include independent applications that exchange information with each other-a technique usually called enterprise integration. An architectural approach called the Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) offers developers a way to handle the messages between those independent applications without creating a lot of custom code. While commercial ESB solutions can be quite expensive to implement and maintain, a set of high-quality open source ESB tools offer the same functionality at a substantially lower cost.

Open Source ESBs in Action shows you how to implement and use two open source ESB implementations: Mule and ServiceMix. The authors introduce you to these freely-available ESB tools and present practical examples of how to use them in real-world scenarios. You will learn how the various features of an ESB such as transformation, routing, security, connectivity and more can be implemented using Mule and ServiceMix. You will also learn how to solve common enterprise integration problems using a structured approach.

Beyond simply learning how Mule and Service Mix work, you'll learn the core techniques of ESB implementation such as Process Choreography, or the implementation of complex business processes through an ESB, and Service Orchestration, or exposing a set of services as a single service. The book shows you the fundamentals of ESB-based event processing and Quality of Service concerns like security, reliable delivery, and transaction management.

Working in integration projects is exciting, with new technologies and paradigms arriving every day. Open Source technologies like Mule and ServiceMix both offer lower-cost solutions and a higher degree of innovation than commercial ESB implementations. Open Source ESBs in Action will help you master ESB-driven integration techniques quickly and will provide you with knowledge you need to work effectively with Mule and ServiceMix.

Purchase of the print book comes with an offer of a free PDF, ePub, and Kindle eBook from Manning. Also available is all code from the book.

Book News Annotation:

An enterprise service buses (ESB) is "a software architecture construct which provides fundamental services for complex architectures via an event-driven and standards-based messaging engine." This volume provides instruction on how to use two different open source ESBs: Mule 2.0.2 and Apache ServiceMix 3.2.1. The volume discusses the architecture of the ESBs; complementary technologies for use in development, integration solutions; implementation of routing, validation, and transformation; connectivity options; web services functionality; error handling, security, and transactions; management and monitoring of ESBs; and the use of ESBs with a process engine. Distributed in the US and Canada by O'Reilly. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
