Summary

In this chapter, we have introduced the concept of a Service Engine and given an overview of the Service Engines installed with the NetBeans Enterprise Pack (the BPEL, Java EE, SQL, IEP, and XSLT Service Engines). We've learned that Service Engines:

  • Provide business logic functionality to their clients
  • Can be consumers and/or providers
  • Run within a Java Business Integration (JBI) Server
  • Expose their interfaces via WSDL
  • Communicate within an Enterprise Service Bus via messaging

We've also discussed some basic concepts about JBI such as the Normalized Message Router, Service Assemblies, and Service Units. We have a good understanding of JBI, some of the problems with Enterprise Application integration and why JBI is useful.
