We've learned to avoid invasive programming models, we've developed a rich set of frameworks and APIs, we know how to develop apps based around simple objects. Are we there yet?

Mark Richards tells us what an ESB is, its role, what capabilities it provides, and the various ways an ESB can be implemented. He takes a close look at the JBI specification (JSR-208) and explains what impact it will have with the ESB world. This will teach you how to determine your own specific requirements for an ESB and then match these requirements to the product space.
