I tried looking over the table of contents on Amazon. I did not notice a description about EIP. I know it's in there. Does the book describe how Spring integration realizes EIP patterns with examples? How does the framework simplify Spring bean injection into these patterns?
The Spring Integration components are based on the standard EIP patterns so they are well covered in the book with examples. Since they are Spring components usually with namespace support, they may be configured in the same manner as other Spring beans.
Right - the API itself reflects the names of the patterns. In fact, one thing that seperates Spring Integration from other solutions is that - at the core of the Bobby Woolf / Gregor Hohpe's canonical book is the idea of a message channel, which everybody else seems to omit. In Spring Integration, it's a central part of the surface API, as it is in the patterns.
