Tutorial introducing How to create, design a simple SOA solution using Camel and OSGI

After a few weeks of investigation about OSGI, I have decided to start to write a tutorial showing How we can design/create a Service Oriented Architecture using Camel in combination with OSGI standard. The first part of this tutorial has been published and next part will come soon.

Through this tutorial, the user will see how such a solution can be designed and deployed in two really interesting products : ServiceMix Kernel server (based on Apache Felix) and Spring Dynamic Server (based on Eclipse Equinox).

Choosing between Routing and Orchestration in an ESB

The goal of this interesting article is to help ESB users choose the right answer according to their needs, when confronted with the most complex and diverse of ESB concepts: routing and orchestration.

Instead of abstract theorizing we will ground our efforts and reasoning in simple, real-world examples in an attempt to fill the void between low-level routing and global, business service orchestration. In other words: We will try to uncover how the different layers of routing and orchestration build up.

Even if the solution used to make the design is a ESB based on JBI specification --> Petals, the publication provides a clear presentation of the concepts and help the architect to choose.

Apache Camel 1.4 released

The new version of the Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) Apache Camel ( 1.4.0 ) has been released. This release includes 261 new features, improvements and bug fixes. With this release, Camel proves that they become a significant actor in the SOA world. The community behind and the talented developers help this project to grow fast and to provide interesting alternatives to design SOA solutions around Enterprise Integration Patterns and the DSL language.
