Topic: "Enterprise Application Integration with SOA and ESBs"

Abstract: Enterprise Integration with SOA and ESBs Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) is gaining steam due to a number of business drivers including mergers and acquisitions, re-organizations and cost-cutting. At the same time that the demand for EAI is increasing, the expectations from an EAI solution are higher and conditions such as lower costs, reduced invasiveness on existing applications, higher scalability and enhanced manageability are casually placed in the requirements documents. The buzz from the industry as to the preferred approach to EAI for satisfying these expectations is the use of a Service Oriented Architecture-based solution.

In this talk, we will look into how SOA can be utilized to achieve integration of enterprise applications. In this process of understanding how SOA can help with EAI, we will look at some related concepts and technologies, such as the concept of an Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) and the Java Business Integration (JBI) standard, and bring everything together into a solution through the use of Enterprise Integration Patterns. Before closing the session we will take a look at the Mule open source project, which provides an excellent low-cost framework for enterprise application integration.
