Organizations that are able to integrate their applications and data sources have a distinct competitive advantage: strategic utilization of company data and technology for greater efficiency and profit. But IT managers attempting integration face daunting challenges--disparate legacy systems; a hodgepodge of hardware, operating systems, and networking technology; proprietary packaged applications; and more.

It encompasses technologies that enable business processes and data to speak to one another across applications, integrating many individual systems into a seamless whole.

You will find an overview of EAI goals and approaches, a review of the technologies that support it, and a roadmap to implementing an EAI solution. You will also find an in-depth explanation of the four major types of EAI: data-level, application interface-level, method-level, and user interface-level. Comprehensive, practical, and clearly written, this essential resource will help anyone involved in this important business area understand the nature of EAI, its tools and techniques, and how to apply it for a significant business advantage.

From the Back Cover Organizations that are able to integrate their applications and data sources have a distinct competitive advantage: strategic utilization of company data and technology for greater efficiency and profit. The book describes in detail the middleware models and technologies that support these different approaches, including: Application servers, including the use of Enterprise JavaBeans EJB and ActiveX Message-oriented middleware MOM and remote procedure calls RPCs Distributed objects, looking at CORBA and COM Database-oriented middleware and standards, including ODBC, JDBC, and OLE DB Java middleware standards Message brokers New process automation and workflow technology This practical guide to implementing an EAI solution leads you through all the major steps, including identifying sources of data, building the enterprise metadata model, process integration, identifying application interfaces, mapping information movement, selecting and applying the technologies, testing, and maintenance.

David S. Linthicum is an internationally known distributed-computing and application integration expert who speaks at popular technical conferences throughout the United States. He has almost twenty years of experience in the integration-technology industry, most recently as CTO of Mercator Software, Inc.

He has consulted for hundreds of major corporations engaged in systems analysis, design, and development, with a concentration in complex distributed systems. This is David's third book on application integration. No customer reviews. How does Amazon calculate star ratings?

The machine learned model takes into account factors including: the age of a review, helpfulness votes by customers and whether the reviews are from verified purchases.

Review this product Share your thoughts with other customers. Write a customer review. Most helpful customer reviews on Amazon. Verified Purchase. Linthicum has an easy-to-read writing style and explains each technology he covers at the introductory to moderate level of depth. The descriptions are ample for any manager and useful for technologists needing a concise reference to get the big picture of the technology they are beginning to work with.

There are lots and lots of clear diagrams. You can learn a lot fast from this book, especially if you are new to EAI. I have quite a bit of integration experience yet I found many sections quite helpful typically in areas where I had not already done a project. Since Amazon has the table of contents on line I won't rehash everything the book covers.

Suffice it to say it addresses every significant EAI technology for distributed architectures from client, middleware or database tiers, except for web services. There is also some coverage of centralized architectures mainframe, midrange and how they can interact with the distributed world.

The book also addresses some famous infamous? The author is careful to not to sell his software though his company sells EAI tools. You get an expert without the pitch. I think it is most useful to note the book was published around when web-services were hardly on anyone's radar.

XML was on the scene and the book talks about it plenty. Currently though you can't discuss EAI without discussing web services. They are very useful, but my experience at the time of this review is all but the wealthiest customers are being slow to deeply adopt due to technical skills transfer in their staffs, etc.

That means this book still covers a lot of technologies customers really use every day and will for a long time with or without web services. I do not fault the author for not covering what didn't exist when he wrote the book, just consider these things before making your purchase decision. Another area of the book that is lacking is security coverage.

I literally only found one paragraph that really discussed security and it mostly said that it is an issue. Again, the industry is not working in the author's favor. Security in integration is nothing but a problem in virtually every technology you hear about including web services. So don't buy the book for its practical approach to security issues because they are well beyond its scope hard to find anywhere. If you can live without web services and security info yet need to learn about practically every other aspect of multi-tier EAI, this is a good book.

This book aims at a good target: explaining EAI to managers. To accomplish this task, the author needed full descriptions of the concepts and meaty examples to illustrate them. This book has neither. For example, the author states several times that SAP needs a richer collection of APIs in order to connect to other application.

Nowhere does he describe what is missing: what functionality is hard to access in SAP that should be easy? Save your money. This book as a whole is oriented towards technologically-savvy individuals, but several sections of the book, such as the coverage of "what is EAI" should appeal to, and be of great value to, a wide audience. As an experienced EAI architect, I felt very disappointed at this book. The book aim either at high-level managers to give them an introduction of what EAI is or at students who don't know anything about EAI.

It is full of lot of abstract concepts without any implementation plan or idea. Most of tech described are out of date. I think a good book talking about EAI at least should have a chapter to compare all possible integration ways and should give readers their pros and cons.

What they really did, how they did, what we should concern today. Of course, a case study is necessary. If you, an experienced EAI developer or architect, would like to know or get more details about how to do it, you don't need this book.

I found the material on this book to be very outdated and the coverage of the topic is very shallow. I come from a technical background and found this book to be of little value in trying to address the difficulties of application integration. Look for a different book if you want to find out about enterprise application integration.
