Enterprise Service Bus Software
Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) Software Overview
What is Enterprise Service Bus Software?A bus is a general term that describes a communication system that transfers data between components inside a computer, or between computers.
An Enterprise Service Bus is also a kind of data transfer connector between applications and services. It is essentially a piece of middleware used to distribute work among components of an application or between applications. The central concept is that the ESB provides the middleware and interfaces that allow businesses to connect their applications without writing code. Connecting new services, data sources, clients or applications to the central bus relies on industry standards and is relatively easy to do.
One of the most important problems solved by an Enterprise Service Bus software is the problem of point-to-point integration which can become very difficult to manage over time. Typically custom code connecting multiple applications or components can result in a maze of code which is very difficult to manage. An Enterprise Service Bus provides a central way to manage these connections much more elegantly.
How does an ESB work?
An ESB architecture controls the way that work travels along the bus making it quite easy to change components or add additional components. Because an ESB sees all the traffic being routed between components, it is also a convenient place to enforce security and compliance and even to handle performance monitoring and load balancing.
