This is not that different from application servers hosting JEE applications, but an ESB usually integrates a large set of applications not only limited to a Java domain. Therefore, if the message size in a queue is exceeding a certain limit, for example, that must be detected as early as possible. We categorize this functionality as monitoring and management. 13. 13 The ESB is a central product of the large set of capabilities an ESB pro- within the environment and therefore monitoring and management capabilities are vital.

The introduction of an ESB to an application landscape could help to deal with the maintenance nightmare and make it easier to add new applications. 1. 2. 2 is the reduction in the number of integration connections among the various applications. Every application is connected to the ESB, and the integration logic needed to integrate the COBOL application with the CRM application is implemented within the ESB. 2 is just a high-level picture. The picture hides the complexity of implementing the integration logic by drawing an ESB layer, but complexity remains inside this layer that should be dealt with.

12. As you can see, security is a broad topic. In chapter 8 we discuss how security can be implemented in an ESB with a number of practical examples. 7 Monitoring and management The last ESB core functionality that we examine involves managing an ESB environment. This core functionality is different from the ones we’ve discussed, as the others were focused on development and runtime capabilities of an ESB. This section focuses on the ability to maintain and manage an ESB. 20 CHAPTER 1 The world of open source ESBs Because an ESB is a critical piece in a system landscape, the environment must be managed and monitored.
