We know your time is valuable. Space is limited and this workshop is open by invitation only to ensure an interactive and productive experience. Please register to request an invitation and directions to the venue.

Best practices in Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) include a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) and the Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) model to implement a service broker pattern for connectivity, mediation, process orchestration and security.

This workshop will help architects and developers obtain a high level architectural view describing how ESBs fit into a SOA, and will explain how the high-performance, low footprint WSO2 ESB, in conjunction with other components of the WSO2 middleware platform, can connect, mediate, orchestrate and manage interactions between application integration consumers and providers.
