Summary

In this chapter, we have overviewed the integration challenges and figured out that integration is one of the most difficult problems in application development. Therefore, it has to be planned carefully, it has to be based on sound integration architectures, on selected infrastructure and technologies, and managed according to integration process best practices.

We have seen that integration is not a solely technical problem, although technologies play an important role. Therefore, we have overviewed integration technologies and middleware products, ranging from data access technologies over remote procedure calls, message-oriented middleware to web services and enterprise services buses. We have also identified the best strategies for integration and discussed top-down, bottom-up, and inside-out approaches.
