24 J2EE for Enterprise Application Integration and e-business Integration

Matjaz B. Juric
University of Maribor, matjaz.juric@uni-mb.si

Enterprise Application Integration (EAI), although not a buzzword anymore, is still very important for each company. Among others, it is the prerequisite for successful B2B integration. This tutorial gives answers to the following questions: How suitable is J2EE for EAI? Which steps should we do for successful integration and which patterns should we use? How should we design the integration architecture? How should we wrap existing applications? When should we use virtual components? How can we achieve transactional and security integration?

The tutorial also discuses the suitability of J2EE technologies for integration and provides practical examples how to achieve interoperability between CORBA and RMI, different MOM (message oriented middleware) systems, transactional systems (X/Open DTP, CORBA OTS), security mechanisms, JNDI, EIS systems and Windows platform. The following will be covered:

    Data level integration (JDBC, JDO, XML)

    Application interface and business method integration (CORBA, RMI-IIOP, EJB, Java Connector Architecture, COM Bridges)

    Presentation integration (JSP/Servlets, XML/XSLT, Portal Servers)

Finally, the tutorial will show how to use the integration architecture for e-business and how to develop Web Services on top. We will demonstrate why successful EAI is the prerequisite for effective Web Services and why tying Web Services directly to existing applications will not work in long term.
