Services-Based Enterprise Integration Patterns Made Easy, Part 2: More on the Evolution of Basic Concepts
This paper, Part 2 of the series, picks up where the user left off in Part 1. Now that one has learned about the two earliest integration patterns - data sharing (socket programming) and Remote Procedure Call (RPC) - one continues developing the basic concepts. Check out two more developed patterns: distributed objects and asynchronous messaging. Explore the concepts of language independence, declaration of service interfaces, rudimentary ideas of publication and discovery of services, and basics of the Enterprise Service Bus (ESB).
