From the Author
JMS, for example, is a well established standard for messaging, with broad industry support. It is one of the MANY ways to integrate with other applications through an ESB. I dont mention it any more or any less than other standard technologies like XPath or XSLT. In fact, I have an entire chapter on "Message Oriented Middleware" which generically discusses MOM concepts such as store-and-forward messaging. At the end of the chapter is a small section on JMS and another equal amount of ink devoted to WS-Reliability and WS-ReliableMessaging. The final chapter, BTW is about how ESBs and the Web Services stack of specifications (many of which I am co-author of) are going to evolve together.
Lastly, I appreciate that you have correctly recognized that "the concepts outlined nicely complement Hohpe's book on intergation patterns in my view". I worked with Gregor Hohpe during the writing of this book to ensure that the readers of both books would have a consistent visual metaphor when describing integration patterns. Dave
