A Buyers Guide to an Enterprise Service Bus (ESB)

  1. 1. A Buyers Guide to an Enterprise Service Bus Kasun Indrasiri Associate Technical Lead WSO2 Inc.
  2. 2. Overview• Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) - What and Why?• Selecting an ESB• Do you really need an ESB?• Core Functionalities of an ESB• Why WSO2 ESB?• Features of WSO2 ESB• Conclusion
  3. 3. ESB - What?• Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) • An enterprise service bus (ESB) is a software architecture for middleware that provides fundamental services for more complex architectures. • An ESB acts as a shared messaging layer for connecting applications and other services throughout an enterprise computing infrastructure. • It supplements its core asynchronous messaging backbone with intelligent transformation and routing to ensure messages are passed reliably. (source:Gartner)
  4. 4. ESB - Why?• Why ESB? • Service Mediation • Transformations • Routing • Validations • Event Management • Interactions • QoS – Security, Reliability, Throttling • Service Hosting • Service Orchestration
  5. 5. Selecting an ESB• It’s challenging! • Number of Complex ESB products • Discrete features and capabilities. • The architecture requirements for SOA and ESB rapidly vary. • There are no standards, that define ESB capabilities.
  6. 6. Do you really need an ESB?• Integrating more than a few application and more new applications will be introduced to the system.• Mediate Messages based on various business requirements• Supporting various protocols and standards• Virtualization of different services offered by diverse applications• Various QoS requirements
  7. 7. Core Functionalities of an ESB• Support of multiple protocols and Protocol conversion• Data transformation and data-based routing• Support of multiple standards• Integrated security features• Comprehensive error handling mechanisms• Support of both synchronous and asynchronous service invocations• Highly available and scalable infrastructure• Extensibility• Support of composite services through lightweight orchestration• Enterprise Integration Pattern support
  8. 8. Extended Features• Graphical editing tools• SLA monitoring and management• BPEL and other business process support• Business Activity Monitoring (BAM)• Dynamic service provisioning• Complex Event Processing (CEP)• Other SOA related aspects
  9. 9. Why WSO2 ESB?• Lightweight• Supports all the core functionalities of an ESB• A part of a complete SOA platform• 100% Free and Open Source under Apache License 2• Comprehensive support from the developers who built the product• Go Cloud Native
  10. 10. Wide Range of EIP support• Splitter• Aggregator• Translator• Content Enricher
  11. 11. Wide Range of EIP support• Wire Tap• Content Based Router• Message Filter• Message Store
  12. 12. Wide Range of EIP support• Recipient List• Message Router
  13. 13. Advance Features• Store and Forward • Message Stores • Message Processors• Configuration reuse • Sequence Templates • Endpoint Templates
  14. 14. Protocols and Conversions• Various Protocols and Conversions • Transports • HTTP/S, POP/IMAP, SMTP, JMS, AMQP, FIX, Raw TCP, Raw UDP, SAP, File transports (FTP/SFTP/CIFS), SAP IDOC/BAPI • Content interchange formats • SOAP 1.1, SOAP 1.2, POX, HTML, Plain text, binary, JSON, Hessian • REST API for all RESTful invocations • A new feature that will be available in the upcoming release.
  15. 15. Standards and Business Adapter• Various Standards and Business Adapters • WS-* standards • WS-Addressing, WS-Security, WS-Reliable Messaging, WS-Policy, WS-Discovery, MTOM/SwA • Business Adapters • SAP Adapter (BAPI and IDOC) • FIX • HL7
  16. 16. Message Transformations and QoS• Transformations • xslt,xquery,smooks• QoS • Security Features • 16 security scenarios • XACML, SAML 2.0, WS-Security and many more with WSO2-IS features • Reliable Messaging • Throttling
  17. 17. Ease of Use• Download-> Unzip -> Start• Web Console • Easy configuration through an intuitive graphical interface allows you to get started• Number of samples that you can try out. • http://wso2.org/project/esb/java/4.0.2/docs/samples_index.htm
  18. 18. Extensibility – WSO2 Carbon• WSO2 Product = Carbon Core + features
  19. 19. Extensibility – WSO2 Carbon• Feature Management with WSO2
  20. 20. Extensibility – WSO2 Carbon• Implement your own • Custom Mediators, Scheduled Tasks, Message Stores and Message Processors• Xpath Extensions• Message Builders and Formatters to support proprietary protocols
  21. 21. HA, Clustering and Governance Aspects• Clustering based on WSO2 Governance Registry• Deployment Synchronizer• Carbon Applications (cApp)• Life Cycle Management
  22. 22. Extended Features• Tooling with Carbon Studio• BPS• BAM• CEP
  23. 23. WSO2 SOA Platform• Not just an ESB, but a SOA Platform
  24. 24. WSO2 SOA Platform• Don’t change your architecture to match the middleware
