A Look at the Theory in Practice
O'Reilly Releases "Enterprise Service Bus"

Sebastopol, CA--Large IT organizations increasingly face the challenge of
integrating various web services, applications, and other technologies
into a single network. The solution to finding a meaningful large-scale
architecture that is capable of spanning a global enterprise appears to
have been met in ESB, or Enterprise Service Bus. Rather than conform to
the hub-and-spoke architecture of traditional enterprise application
integration products, ESB provides a highly distributed approach to
integration, with unique capabilities that allow individual departments or
business units to build out their integration projects in incremental,
digestible chunks, maintaining their own local control and autonomy, while
still being able to connect together each integration project into a
larger, more global integration fabric, or grid.

"Enterprise Service Bus" (O'Reilly, US $39.95) by David A. Chappell offers
a thorough introduction and overview for systems architects, system
integrators, technical project leads, and CTO/CIO level managers who need
to understand, assess, and evaluate this new approach. Chappell, one of
the best known and authoritative voices in the field of enterprise
middleware and standards-based integration, drills down into the technical
details of the major components of ESB, showing how it can utilize an
event-driven SOA to bring a variety of enterprise applications and
services built on J2EE, .NET, C/C++, and other legacy environments into
the reach of the everyday IT professional.

"My intent in this book is to explain the ESB concept with just the right
amount of detail that is suitable for individuals across many disciplines
within an IT organization and with varying levels of technical and business
acumen," Chappell explains. "This book takes a different tack from my
previous O'Reilly books, and from most O'Reilly books in general, in that
there are no code samples to speak of. You will, however, find a considerable
number of diagrams that explain architectural concepts of the ESB."

"Enterprise Service Bus" aims to help readers become well versed in the
problems faced by IT organizations today, gaining an understanding of how
current technology deficiencies impact business issues. Through the study
of real-world use cases and integration patterns drawn from several
industries using ESB--including telcos, financial services, retail, B2B
exchanges, energy, manufacturing, and more--the book clearly and
coherently outlines the benefits of moving toward this integration
strategy. The book also compares ESB to other integration architectures,
contrasting their inherent strengths and limitations.

Anyone who is charged with understanding, assessing, or implementing an
integration architecture, will find the straightforward information they
need to draw their conclusions about this important disruptive technology
in "Enterprise Service Bus."
