This module explains the enterprise application integration and migration strategies in a systematic and "hype-free" manner and discusses the integration architectures with a comprehensive analysis of enabling technologies. This is one module of an extensive handbook that systematically discusses how to translate e-business strategies to working solutions by using the latest distributed computing technologies. Several real life examples and case studies are included to explain the key points. Chapters of this module discuss the following topics: a) overview of enterprise integration with existing (including legacy) applications, b) conceptual discussion of strategic, architectural and technical choices (e.g., loose versus tight coupling, pub-sub models) with promises and pitfalls, c) enterprise and inter-enterprise application integration (EAI/eAI) technologies and platforms to support light-weight as well as heavy-duty integrations, d) analysis of enabling technologies (Web Services, XML, CORBA/DCOM, message brokers, MOM, screen scrapers, ODBC/JDBC) and the commercially available EAI platforms that package these technologies for an "integration bus", e) data warehouses and their role in enterprise integration, e) migration strategies and technologies, and f) integration state of the practice (examples), market (commercial products), and art (research issues). Numerous useful references and links are provided for additional investigation.
