5.0 out of 5 stars A great resource for any Spring developers looking to leverage EIP in their applications..., 28 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Spring Integration in Action (Paperback)
In a nutshell: This is a great resource for any developers working with Spring Integration, and also any developers working with Spring Core who want to use Enterprise Integration Patterns (EIP) within their code without moving away from the oh-so-comfortable Spring framework.

This book will walk you through the entire process of utilising Spring Integration ("from soup to nuts" as our American friends like to say), starting with the core concepts and benefits of using EIP within Spring, moving through messaging fundamentals (pipes, filters, routers etc), integration with disparate systems and data formats (XML, JMS, Files, WS etc) and wrapping up with more advanced topics like scheduling, batching and leveraging OSGi within the framework.

The book does a great job of covering EIP concepts, but you'll gain even more understanding if you are familiar with core concepts from Enterprise Integration Patterns: Designing, Building, and Deploying Messaging Solutions (Addison-Wesley Signature), which was ground-breaking when first published, and was the book that introduced EIP to the world (and is still the definitive reference)

It could be argued that the sister publication Camel in Action contains a more logical flow with introducing and using EIP principles, and with Camel in Action the journey through the book feels very much like learning to leverage EIP within your applications by utilising Camel. Spring Integration in Action reads more like using Spring to implement functionality that happens to be based on EIP. This is a subtle difference, and has both advantages and disadvantages. Readers familiar with Spring (and indeed actively developing with Spring) will probably get up to speed quicker with Spring Integration In Action, but developers who aren't familiar with Spring (or who want to learn more about core EIP principles) will ultimately get more out of Camel In Action.

In summary, another great 'in Action' book (can they do no wrong?), and if you're looking to learn Spring Integration or utilise EIP within your application then you won't regret this purchase.
