This article shows the different components available for a Hybrid Integration Architecture. The goal is not to discuss different vendor offerings but to explain different concepts and benefits of each component in general and how they relate to each other. Including concepts such as Hybrid Integration Platform (HIP), Cloud-Native Middleware, PaaS, Docker, iPaaS, iSaaS, API Management, and others.
This article discusses how relevant microservices, containers and a cloud-native architecture is for middleware. It is unbelievable how fast enterprises of all sizes are moving forward with these topics!
This slide deck revisits Enterprise Integration Patterns (EIP) and gives an overview about the status quo. Fortunately, EIPs offer more possibilities than just be used for modelling integration problems in a standardized way. Several frameworks and tools already implement these patterns. The developer does not have to implement EIPs on his own. Therefore, the end of the slide deck shows different frameworks and tools available, which can be used for modelling and implementing complex integration scenarios by using the EIPs.
