Kick Starting Your Integration with an Enterprise Service Bus - by John Carnell
When most software professionals hear the term "integration platform" or "enterprise service bus" they often have images of heavy development platforms based on proprietary technology that have a mixed-rate of success. However, over the last 5 years, commercially-based open-source integration platforms have burst onto the technology scene. These upstart platforms threaten to upend the integration market and should cause IT organizations to take a step back and evaluate the value of these software development platforms in comparison to their larger, "enterprise" siblings.
This presentation will introduce the participants to MuleSoft's Mule Enterprise Service Bus. Mule is Spring-based integration platform that provides deep capabilities based on a combination of open source and commercially backed technologies. Its strong Java capabilities along with its open-architecture make it easy for Java developers to learn how to quickly deliver integration solutions and, when needed, extend the platform.
John Carnell, the speaker, will provide an overview of the different components used in building a Mule-based integration platform along with several concrete examples of where Mule has been used to effectively solve real-world integration problems.
John Carnell is a Principle Engineer at Thrivent Financial in Appleton, WI. John is a prolific speaker and writer. He has spoken at such national conferences as the No Fluff Just Stuff Software Symposium, Internet Expo and the Data Warehousing Institute.
John has authored, co-authored and has been a technical reviewer for a number of technology books and industry publications.
