Fundamental Patterns for Enterprise Integration Services

fulltext etc. no fulltext attached
abstract Enterprise integration projects link or merge artifacts across many functions, processes or management levels in a company or government agency. In the absence of methods that are both generic enough to cover the diverse range of enterprise integration projects and that are adaptable enough to support specific projects effectively, integration services promise to constitute a suitable middle layer. Since patterns or reference models could serve as such a middle layer, existing work in the field of patterns in computer science as well as work in the field of reference modeling in information systems engineering is analyzed. In a bottom-up manner, alignment, derivation, binding and merge are proposed as fundamental base patterns for enterprise integration. Integration services are identified as integration tasks that are associated with these base patterns. Such integration services are clustered into enterprise integration patterns which serve as fragments for composing a context and project type specific enterprise integration project method. Two case studies are used to illustrate the concept and gain initial validation insights.
