Architect's Breakfast - Enterprise Integration Patterns - April 6, 2005 - Kitchener - -60

Most companies use an esoteric mix of software to run their business. Each piece of code was created for different purposes and at different times. As we all know, much of that code continues to run long after it was scheduled to be “replaced”. It must continue to run next to newer code that is built using newer (and different) tools. Integrating these different pieces of code can be a tough challenge for many IT departments.

This talk will show you how to integrate code using messages. A pattern language has evolved to describe how messages are used in integration projects. We will use it to discuss how to create, deliver, route, transform, receive and manage messages. During the talk, we will also design a complex application using these simple patterns. By the end of this talk, you will have a clearer picture of when, why, and how to apply these patterns in your next integration project.
