Yeah - I wish we had a copy of the TOC or something, but in the book you'll find examples on how to:
- provide push-style messaging using Ajax/Comet, Flex
- integrate with enterprise messaging brokers using both AMQP and JMS
- integrate with other enterprise services like JDBC, web services (both SOAP and REST-based), email (POP, SMTP, IMAP, IMAP-IDLE), etc.
- integrate with social services like Twitter, XMPP (the chat protocol behind Google Chat and Facebook chat), RSS/ATOM feeds
- integrate with file sytem services like FTP, FTPS, and SFTP
- write custom Spring Integration adapters (the examples also include a fairly complex one that integrates with the Linux kernel to receive direct file system notifications!)
and a lot more, all explained in terms of the patterns in the "Patterns of Enterprise Integration" book!

About the examples... are they only provided as written examples on the book itself, I mean, does this book include some sort of source (CD / DVD o Internet downloading) with code samples, exercises to practice with and the like? Thanks again!
PD: An extended TOC can also be found on a preview of the book from Amazon here
I've taken a look at the code and I noticed it can be put in practice using a sandbox available from springsource.org. That's perfect! I definetly will start learning all these Spring technologies as soon as my duties allow me.

Some of the examples require code from the Spring Integration sandbox. This is because we were trying to show some of the latest features of Spring Integration.
