That makes it all the more unfortunate that the writing and editing of the book make it so much less accessible than it could be. The writing is heavy, wordy--it feels like reading a Ph.D. thesis rather than a more informal tech book. Many concepts are discussed repeatedly, reiterated a dozen times. In all, I'd say this book is probably a solid hundred pages longer than it actually needs to be. An extra hundred pages filled, like the rest of the book, with misspelled words and grammatical errors. (Note: When I graduated high school, my mother didn't read my yearbook; she spellchecked it, cover to cover. Those sorts of errors are particularly distracting to me--your mileage may vary on how much of an issue they are.Read more ›
For example the section Queue Channel starts on page 181 and ends on page 192. No sub sections, no logical cohesive way to present the information, but just one long dump of sample code mixed with text. And mixed in this section is the definition of the Message interface.
The formatting also stinks. The formatting of the code examples is so close to the text there is no easy to way to discern the end of the example and the beginning of the text.
Do yourself a favor. Read the documentation and download the samples that Spring provides and stay far away from this terrible book.
Pro Spring Integration will guide you through the world of enterprise application integration and demonstrate common integration uses cases using Spring Integration. You will learn about core EAI patterns (messaging, various channels, various endpoints and adapters, transformers, enrichers, mappers and much more) and how to use this with common technologies like JMX, databases, JMS, web services, flex, email, spring batch and so on. Book demonstrates this in complete, readable examples with good formatting. Nice plus is usage of Java configuration on many places (instead of XML config).
It is not a book that you have to read cover-to-cover, but is a book that will help you start using Spring Integration quickly and effectively and you will refer back to it when needed.
