Today, organizations rely on their enterprise software applications to carry out business functions more efficiently. However a disconnected heap of independent software applications can cause more problems than they solve. In order to make the most out of enterprise software deployments, they should be integrated to work together in perfect synchronicity. Though it seems simple enough, connecting a myriad of diverse applications with their different programming languages, platforms, data formats, protocols, and QoS requirements can be an architect's worst nightmare.

Today, organizations rely on their enterprise software applications to carry out business functions more efficiently. However a disconnected heap of independent software applications can cause more problems than they solve. In order to make the most out of enterprise software deployments, they should be integrated to work together in perfect synchronicity. Though it seems simple enough, connecting a myriad of diverse applications with their different programming languages, platforms, data formats, protocols, and QoS requirements can be an architect's worst nightmare.

The enterprise service bus provides a simple and uniform approach for connecting heterogeneous applications, and it acts as the backbone of SOA integration while routing, filtering, transforming, mixing and matching traffic flows from various sources. The WSO2 ESB, one of the fastest and best open source ESB implementations available, supports a range of communication protocols, message formats, and QoS standards. With its simple declarative configuration language, the WSO2 ESB can be used to solve practically any SOA integration problem or implement any known enterprise integration pattern without having to write a single line of code.

This presentation will start off with a discussion of the basic concepts and common challenges associated with enterprise integration. It will introduce the ESB pattern for solving enterprise integration problems and basic features and services offered by an ESB. Finally it will introduce the WSO2 ESB, its core capabilities, and why every integration architect should consider the WSO2 ESB as their prime choice of middleware for SOA integration.
