The Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) serves as a key component in most of the enterprise grade deployments. In most cases, the ESB removes point-to-point dependencies in your system to build a highly-scalable, loosely-coupled solution. ESB is a key ingredient to build an SOA infrastructure, but it's not a must. Even with an ESB, if industry best practices and patterns are not followed, users will end up in a mess. This book will teach you the essentials to get started with WSO2 ESB and solve the most commonly-faced integration problems.
The book starts by explaining the need for an ESB and the problems it solves. It will cover the most widely-used enterprise integration patterns, including Content Based Router, Dynamic Router, Splitter, Aggregator, Scatter & Gather, Publish & Subscribe, Detour, Service Chaining, Content Enricher and Message Broker. Learn how WSO2 ESB can bring third-party business messaging systems such as SAP, FIX, and HL7 into the SOA world, as well as how to integrate the Twitter connector into your business messaging flow.
Providing background on the “when and why” of the topic, then diving into practical, instruction-based examples called “recipes”, where each recipe will explain how to address a given challenge in enterprise integration.

If you are an architect or a developer, keen on building solutions to solve enterprise integration problems, this is the book for you! Understanding of SOA design concepts, SOAP, REST, and related messaging systems is important. However, you are not expected to be an advanced user of WSO2 ESB.
