Thanks to everyone and congratulation to the winners.

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.

Pradeep,

The major alternatives are commercial products such as webMethods and Tibco. Chapter 2 covers some of the open source alternatives such as Camel, ServiceMix, OpenESB, and J2EE. There are compared in terms of ease of use, maintainability, and extensibility. I have found Spring Integration to be most intuitive integration solution.

Arjumand,

The transformer component is for payload transformation or enrichment.

Ted,

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.

Thanks to all. Hope everyone enjoys the book.

Spring Integration supports all the basic Enterprise Integration Patterns. It leverages the Spring Framework component model freeing the development from dealing with when and where the data comes from and how it does it. The book provides examples of all the Spring Integration components including creating a custom adapter.

Pradeep,

The book is about Spring Integration, an extension to the Spring Framework which adds lightweight messaging and support for integrating with external systems and services via an adapter framework.

Steve,

We actually have a chapter on some the alternative technologies such as Mule, ServiceMix, OpenESB, and J2EE. Questions I would ask are about ease of use, maintainability, and extensibility. I have found Spring Integration to be one of the most intuitive approaches. Interestingly, Camel, Mule, and ServiceMix all support Spring as a component model.

Oriol,

Spring Integration adds lightweight messaging and support for integrating with external systems and services via an adapter framework. Spring Integration comes with a number of out of the box adapters including support for integration with applications outside of the Spring framework. The approach is much like the standard EAI broker/adapter architecture. I would definitely recommend Spring Integration for learning enterprise integration.

Marco,

I knowledge of Java is required. Some familiarity of Spring would be useful. We do provide an introduction to the Spring Framework. All the basic integration patterns are covered.

Oriol,

Pro Spring Integration is about the Spring Integration Project - the integration and messaging extensions to the Spring Framework. We provide a quick introduction to the Spring Framework in the book. For more in depth information about the Spring Framework I would suggest Spring Recipes.
