Just Spring Integration
A Lightweight Introduction to Spring Integration
Publisher: O'Reilly Media
Final Release Date: April 2012
Pages: 100

Get started with Spring Integration, the lightweight Java-based framework that makes designing and developing message-oriented architectures a breeze. Through numerous examples, you’ll learn how to use this open source framework’s basic building blocks to work with both inter- and intra-application programming models.

If you’re a Java developer familiar with the Spring framework (perhaps through O’Reilly’s Just Spring tutorial) and want to advance your skills with Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) patterns, and messaging systems in particular, this book is ideal.

  • Learn Spring Integration fundamentals, including channels, endpoints, and messages
  • Use message channels to decouple applications, separating producers from consumers
  • Discover how common endpoint patterns separate a messaging application’s business logic from integration details
  • Create a seamless integration between the endpoints, using Transformers
  • Implement Spring Integration’s flow components to design your messaging application’s business flow
  • Configure the framework’s File, FTP, JMS, and JDBC adapters to integrate with external systems

    Comments about oreilly Just Spring Integration:

    This is a concise, well-thoughtout book, with absolutely no fluff. Madhusudhan has done a great job of simplifying the landscape of Spring Integration into seven useful chapters. The first two chapters lay the groundwork of spring integration covering how and why spring makes business-2-business and application-2-application integration simple. I always thought spring integration was complex until I read this book. Chapters 3 and 4 cover message channels and endpoints in more depth. No discussion of spring integration is complete without discussion how to transform data from one format to another and that is covered in Chapter 5. Chapter 6 covers flow components and Chapter 7 finishes the book with a coverage of the various adapters like file, FTP, JMS, and JDBC.

    Overall, I must applaud the author for keeping it simple and to the point and not using any fluff or unnecessary words to fill pages in the book. I really enjoy this style of writing as it helps me keep the focus and also use this book as a ready reference in case of emergency.

    Comments about oreilly Just Spring Integration:

    Disclaimer: I received this e-book for free for writing a review of this book. I have thoroughly read this book and understood concepts before I wrote the review.

    When I started on a new integration project and my first one, I picked up "Just spring integration" by Madhusudhan Konda, hoping to navigate my way through a stack of terminologies and patterns developed by enterprise integration world!

    I personally think the book does a very well job at keeping it concise for a newbie and taking reader through basic concepts as well as implementation details specific to Spring integration. The book covers basics at the same time giving enough to get started with.

    What I would like to keep in mind for someone starting on this book is that sometimes you will find terms which are leading away from discussion, but hold on to them, they will be clarified with flow . Also the examples used are mostly from finance domain, which does not mean that you have to be a domain expert, but I would have liked if examples were a bit generic.

    Overall I think it's a good book for anyone who is starting his Spring integration journey. The conciseness of book is the biggest strength, as it will not tire you but at the same time equipping you with enough tool-belt in hand!
