|One-day technical workshop offers IT professionals best practices for optimizing enterprise application integration using an ESB model
Palo Alto, CA – November 12, 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). In November, WSO2 will host a one-day workshop for IT architects and developers that explores how to successfully implement a service broker pattern for connectivity, mediation, process orchestration, and security with an ESB model. WSO2 will be joined by Yenlo B.V., a WSO2 partner that brings more than 15 years of expertise in service-oriented solutions for enterprise applications, middleware and database platforms for traditional servers, private clouds, and public clouds.
The “WSO2 Integration Platform Discovery” workshop, which runs from 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m., is being held in two locations:
* The Hague, Thursday, November 22, 2012, to register, visit: http://wso2.com/events/workshops/2012-november-the-hague-wso2-integration-platform-discovery-workshop.
* Brussels, Tuesday, November 27, 2012, to register, visit: http://wso2.com/events/workshops/2012-november-brussels-wso2-integration-platform-discovery-workshop.
The Role of an ESB within an SOA
The workshop is designed for IT architects and developers seeking to obtain a high-level architectural understanding of how ESBs fit within an SOA. It will explore how enterprises can connect, mediate, orchestrate and manage interactions between application integration consumers and providers using the WSO2 Enterprise Service Bus (http://wso2.com/products/enterprise-service-bus) in conjunction with other components of the WSO2 Carbon enterprise middleware platform (http://wso2.com/products/carbon). The workshop also will explore the growing challenges of identity and security management. Additionally, it will demonstrate how enterprise architects and developers may overcome these challenges and gain insight into key security standards and identity management for SOA. Workshop session topics will include:
* An overview of ESB architecture, the role of an ESB within an SOA, and the benefits of loosely coupled application architectures.
* Understanding core ESB capabilities, including mediation, transformation, routing, messaging, queuing and eventing.
* How to connect to services and APIs using lightweight JSON/XML, HTTP APIs, and adapters for the Health Level 7 (HL7) interface, Financial Information eXchange (FIX) protocol, SAP, Salesforce.com, and PayPal.
* The role of an ESB in process orchestration, security, governance, complex event processing (CEP), and business activity monitoring (BAM).
