Enterprise application integration best practices are based on SOA principles and a flexible, highly capable ESB.
Palo Alto, CA (PRWEB) May 29, 2012
Today enterprise application integration (EAI) best practices are based on service-oriented architecture (SOA) principles and a flexible, highly capable enterprise service bus (ESB). In a one-day workshop for IT architects and developers, WSO2 technology executives will explore how to successfully implement a service broker pattern for connectivity, mediation, process orchestration, and security with an ESB model.
The WSO2 “WSO2 Integration Platform Discovery” workshop will be presented jointly by Paul Fremantle, WSO2 co-founder and CTO, and Isabelle Mauny, WSO2 director of product management. They will be joined by guest speaker Igor Berchtold, a technical lead and product manager with Suva, Switzerland's leading healthcare coverage provider and public sector insurer. The workshop will be held on Tuesday, June 12, from 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m., at the Bellevue Palace in Bern, Switzerland.

The Role of an ESB within an SOA
The workshop is designed for IT architects and developers seeking to obtain a high-level architectural understanding of how ESBs fit within an SOA. It will explore how enterprises can connect, mediate, orchestrate and manage interactions between application integration consumers and providers using the WSO2 Enterprise Service Bus in conjunction with other components of the WSO2 Carbon enterprise middleware platform. Workshop session topics will include:
· An overview of ESB architecture, the role of an ESB within an SOA, and the benefits of loosely coupled application architectures.
· Understanding core ESB capabilities, including mediation, transformation, routing, messaging, queuing and eventing.
· How to connect to services and APIs using lightweight JSON/XML, HTTP APIs, and adapters for the Health Level 7 (HL7) interface, Financial Information eXchange (FIX) protocol, SAP, Salesforce.com, and PayPal.
· The role of an ESB in process orchestration, security, governance, complex event processing (CEP), and business activity monitoring (BAM).
