Spring Integration for Enterprise Application Integration

Though it is still milestone release, Spring Integration looks promising for use in corporate for EAI.

As quoted from the website, Spring Integration provides an extension of the Spring programming model to support the well-known Enterprise Integration Patterns while building on the Spring Framework’s existing support for enterprise integration. It enables simple messaging within Spring-based applications and integrates with external systems via simple adapters. Those adapters provide a higher-level of abstraction over Spring’s support for remoting, messaging, and scheduling. Spring Integration’s primary goal is to provide a simple model for building enterprise integration solutions while maintaining the separation of concerns that is essential for producing maintainable, testable code.

Spring Integration is motivated by the following goals:

  • Provide a simple model for implementing complex enterprise integration solutions.

  • Facilitate asynchronous, message-driven behavior within a Spring-based application.

  • Promote intuitive, incremental adoption for existing Spring users.

Spring Integration is guided by the following principles:

  • Components should be loosely coupled for modularity and testability.

  • The framework should enforce separation of concerns between business logic and integration logic.

  • Extension points should be abstract in nature but within well-defined boundaries to promote reuse and portability.

Currently Spring Integration has adapaters for

  • JMS
  • RMI
  • HttpInvoker
  • File
  • FTP
  • Mail
  • Web Service
  • Stream
  • ApplicationEvent
