Implementing SOA with JEE 5 and JBI Paper Published

Sun has published a technical article, "Implementing Service-Oriented Architectures
with the Java EE 5 SDK"
, a 65-page PDF. The article, written by Gopalan Suresh Raj, Binod P.G., Keith Babo, and Rick Palkovic, provides an introduction to JEE 5, JAX-WS, JBI and BPEL and shows how a JEE service engine deployed into a JBI container  connects a piece of business logic, implemented as a JEE web service, with a BPEL service engine and an HTTP/SOAP binding component to implement a service-oriented composite application.

JBI (Java Business Integration), wich has been standardized by JSR 208, has wide industry support, the expections being IBM and BEA (who initially supported the JSR, but then withdrew) and Microsoft (who for obvious reasons do not support any Java-connected SOA standards). There is still some discussion as to whether SCA (Service Component Architecture), whose major backers are IBM and BEA, complements or competes with JBI.

The JBI container discussed in the article is OpenESB, which extends the Reference Implementation of JSR 208.

    Wow; that's a heavy-weight article about (what I would consider) heavy-weight development. :)

    Has anyone read it who feels that it's so good that it's worth the time-investment?

    I've skimmed through it and it contains a lot of material on JBI as a standard as well as an introduction to BPEL. If you want to understand the innards of Sun and co.'s view of how an Enterprise Service Bus (which JBI basically standardizes) works in the Java EE platform, then it's probably the most comprehensive source.
