Format: Paperback
I was hoping to simply learn more about Java Business Integration. The first 70 pages are a decent start on this. Following that, however, ServiceMix component tutorials abound, and not in an entertaining cover-to-cover read kind of way.

The writing is often wordy and grammar and spelling slips are fairly common. Most books I set down to thoughtfully consider interesting points but more often I wondered why the author boasted working with many desperate systems (later I realized the author meant disparate) or if wetting my hands with code was anything like getting them dirty.

There isn't much of a practical flow from chapter to chapter, the "Use Cases" never really explain the problems that the samples solve, and seeing my console's output match the book's screenshots after running the code (which is completely downloadable) isn't particularly gratifying.

If you're working with ServiceMix but frustrated by a lack of documentation, then this book might be the right fit for you. Otherwise I recommend you save your money for something else.

Service Oriented Java Business Integration is a well structured and well written book targeted at Java developers and integration architects.

The most attractive feature of this book is the hands-on approach it takes. Each and every concept is dealt with in detail with the aid of a sample use case, sequence diagrams and explanations for the same, complete code listing, instructions on packaging, deploying and running the sample. The author also goes on to explain what happens when the code is run. This book can even be a very good companion on long flights. Even without a computer to try out what is explained, the reader will be able to grasp a great deal with the help of the code listings and the instructions. Most problems addressed by the author in the book are those integration architects face on a daily basis.

The book has some good introductory sections on ESB, JBI, the open source ESB ServiceMix, XPath and XFire. Exposing EJB services and annotated POJO as ESB services, binding web services with the ServiceMix ESB, accessing web services using the JMS channel etc. are all explained with the help of detailed examples. There are some good sections on developing custom JBI components and packaging and deploying JBI components. The highlights of the book are the chapters on versioning of services and EAI patterns. Each EAI pattern is explained with a use case and code listing. QoS features are also dealt upon briefly.

There are some chapters and sections in the book that look a bit out of place, like a chapter on binding without ESB or JBI, after ESB and JBI are introduced.

All in all, a very good practical reference and guidelines book on Service Oriented Java Business Integration from the point of view of a developer/architect.

Format: Paperback
I took some time to read this book and I do not think I lost my so "precious" time. I would say that the book is not intended for Java beginners but more for people with a good technical background and especially with at least, some knowledge of the Java Enterprise world. Never the less, if you are not a specialist, just like I am not one, you could still read the book and you could learn a lot of new stuff.

Indeed, the book is taking you from the beginning and tries to lead you through different technologies like Java Messaging service (JMS), Enterprise Java Beans (EJB), WebServices (WS) and a few more. The author is clearly explaining how to use those different technologies within an Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) and how to implement it using the Java Business Integration (JBI) specification. The aim is to make you understand of how you could use any technology to achieve the Service Oriented Architecture.

A good point is that the theory is accompanied with a lot of examples based on Service Mix, which is an Apache JBI implementation. Those samples are insisting on EJB and WS, I would qualify them as realistic or real world samples. My opinion is that it could help a lot of people and companies not to rewrite their existing code but to rather reuse the code they already have and to make it working within a JBI container. You could find some explanations on how to make a real enterprise application using Service Mix and a huge assortment of useful packages like XStream or Axis. Also, on how to expose your EJBs as WSDL, which I find interesting. The samples provided in the book are accompanied with a lot of code and the whole build process. Thus even if you are not familiar with all those technologies you will be able to test and see the samples running.

Format: Paperback
The Service Oriented Java Business Integration has an organized structure, and is very well written overall. It is specifically targeted towards Java developers, as well as professionals who are integration architects. One of the best features of this book is the hands on method that it uses. Every concept is handled with detail, and it also provides aids for sample uses. It offers both diagrams and explanations for them, and it has a total list of code and instructions for deploying the samples, as well as running them.

The author also takes the time to explain what will happen when the code is processed. This book is excellent for times when you need to wait for something, such as when you're on a flight, and there is little to do. Even if you don't have a computer handy to try out the things that the author talks about, a reader can understand a lot with the code listings, as well as the instructions. Many problems which are noted by the author are things which many integration architects have to deal with on a daily basis.

The book has a number of good sections which are related to JBI, ESB, along with XPath, XFire, and ServiceMix. All these things are explained with examples that are highly detailed. There are excellent sections which show you how to properly develop customized JBI components, as well as packaging and deploying them. The chapters in this book which I enjoyed the most are the ones for EAI patterns, as well as the ones which explained the versioning for services. I highly recommend this book for those who are beginners of either SOA or JBI.

One thing that you have to keep in mind is that this book is quite hands on.
