WSO2 Workshop on Architectural Approaches to Implementing ESBs for Enterprise Application Integration Comes to New York

One-Day Workshop Offers IT Professionals Real-World Best Practices for Using an ESB Model to Implement a Service Broker Pattern Within an SOA Palo Alto, CA – February 1, 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). WSO2 will explore SOA and integration best practices in a technical workshop that examines how SOA principles and an ESB model are used to properly implement a service broker pattern delivering connectivity, mediation, process orchestration, and security. The one-day workshop, “ESB and Enterprise Integration,” will held in New York on Wednesday, February 22, 2012, from 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. To register, visit Designed for enterprise architects, application developers, and IT managers, the workshop will provide a high-level architectural overview of proven ESB implementation patterns, which conform with SOA best practices. It also will examine how the high-performance, low-footprint WSO2 Enterprise Service Bus can connect, mediate, orchestrate and manage interactions between application integration consumers and providers. A knowledge of Java programming and a basic understanding of XML is recommended. ESB and Enterprise Integration Workshop Topics
  • ESB Architecture will provide an overview of an ESB’s role within an SOA and the benefits of loosely coupled application architectures.
  • Efficient Integration and Widespread Adoption will explore best practices for using enterprise integration patterns, ESB mediation, API management, service promotion, and master data management (MDM).
  • Core ESB Capabilities will review mediation, transformation, routing, messaging, queuing and eventing capabilities.
  • Connecting Services and APIs will discuss how to make connections using JSON as a lightweight alternative to XML; HTTP APIs; and adapters for SAP,, Health Level Seven (HL7), Financial Information Exchange (FIX), and PayPal.
  • ESB Functions will examine the ESB’s role in process orchestration, security, governance, complex event processing (CEP), and business activity monitoring (BAM).
  • Deployment Patterns will explore how to deliver high-availability, load balancing, and tuned performance.
  • Common Patterns and Anti-Patterns will examine real-world use cases to provide insights into how common patterns and anti-patterns impact architecture, integration efficiency and adoption.
