From the Back Cover
Utilizing years of practical experience, seasoned experts Gregor Hohpe and Bobby Woolf show how asynchronous messaging has proven to be the best strategy for enterprise integration success. However, building and deploying messaging solutions presents a number of problems for developers. Enterprise Integration Patterns provides an invaluable catalog of sixty-five patterns, with real-world solutions that demonstrate the formidable of messaging and help you to design effective messaging solutions for your enterprise.
The authors also include examples covering a variety of different integration technologies, such as JMS, MSMQ, TIBCO ActiveEnterprise, Microsoft BizTalk, SOAP, and XSL. A case study describing a bond trading system illustrates the patterns in practice, and the book offers a look at emerging standards, as well as insights into what the future of enterprise integration might hold.
This book provides a consistent vocabulary and visual notation framework to describe large-scale integration solutions across many technologies. It also explores in detail the advantages and limitations of asynchronous messaging architectures. The authors present practical advice on designing code that connects an application to a messaging system, and provide extensive information to help you determine when to send a message, how to route it to the proper destination, and how to monitor the health of a messaging system. If you want to know how to manage, monitor, and maintain a messaging system once it is in use, get this book.

The book itself is very well written and organized. It gives very good real-life business integration examples. I believe anyone with some enterprise integration background can follow and relate to this book very easily, and without getting bored or falling asleep.
I have done Messaging and message based integration before, but this book takes essentially what is an art form and makes a science out of it.
First it starts with 4 different styles of integration (File based, Shared Database, RPC, Messaging) and discusses them intelligently giving their advantages and disadvantages.
Then it gets in to the major aspects/ pieces of Message based integration (Message, Channel, Routing, Transformation, End Points, System Management etc). It again discusses them as patterns and develops a good vocabulary of the messaging domain.
Then comes the meat where for each aspect of Messaging, it gives about 8 to 15 specific patterns, names them, shows their pros and cons, gives the trade off and intelligently discusses their usage. As part of the examples it draws example from JMS/ TIBCO/ MSMQ etc. Priceless.
What I loved about this book is how it makes you rethink everything you may have been doing before in software architecture/ integration using technologies such as Web Services, JMS, J2EE etc.
For example, many would not have fully groked MDBs as "event driven", "competing", "transactional" message consumers, that are suited for "Point to Point" integration. Yes I know every body uses them but do you really understand the implications for transaction scope and threading? . Or Polling message consumers have their advantages ?
Good discussion on relate standards and technologies included (Web Services, Axis Implementation, WS-*, SOAP etc)
Buy this guys and may be enterprise integration would be less messy.
This won't be the most in-depth review, but I'd encourage you to visit these two sites for a deeper exploration of the topic:
-- Apache's extensive Java reference implementation, including a nice Wiki with example use cases and creative recipes.
Chapter 2 takes the reader through the integration efforts of a fictional enterprise to demonstrate some of the patterns in action. The descriptions of the problems and their possible solutions... just make sense. You can really see the benefit that these patterns provide to simplifying, organizing and clarifying the situation.
