Services-Based Enterprise Integration Patterns Made Easy, Part 4: Enterprise Service Bus
The first three papers in this series covered the basic concepts necessary to develop services-based integration patterns and explained the various components and standards that, together, are known as Web services. Web services are designed to deal with some of the heterogeneity found in a large enterprise. However, Web services alone aren't enough to provide a complete solution to the heterogeneity problem. In this installment, Part 4 of this series, learn about the enterprise service bus, which, along with Web services, completes services-based integration patterns.
