University Spring Integration: 7 oktober 2010
In the ever more complex world of enterprise integration, it is tough to find simple and effective solutions. In many cases the suites that help in a certain area bring with them a ton of baggage that is slowing you down in other areas.
Usually open source solutions are more lean and pointed at doing one thing well. But it is important to investigate the different options carefully so you are not risking to get stuck in a place you did not want to be in.
Spring Integration aims to do messaging well. Spring Integration is an implementation of the patterns described in Enterprise Integration Patterns (Hohpe en Woolf). It is often compared to Camel, but it has a different focus and a design that is very apparent to its users.
We would like to invite you to join a University session on Spring Integration on Thursday, October 7th. The session gives an introduction to Spring Integration and then you can get hands on experience with the framework. I will also show a bit of the history of the framework and leaves room for discussion of framework evolution with one of its committers.
The practical portion of the evening is based upon the notion of preparing and serving a dinner for your guests. Using messaging, we model the whole flow from recipe to shopping for the ingredients, to cooking and serving the meal. Along the lines of this example you will get a practical impression of splitting, aggregating, routing and other Spring Integration features.
Your presenters are Iwein Fuld and Jeroen van Erp. Iwein is a long time committer to Spring Integration and the co-author of Spring Integration in action. Jeroen is a seasoned developer with Xebia Labs with in depth experience as a user of Spring Integration on large scale business to business integration project.
