Learn About High Availability and Clustering - New GlassFish ESB Whitepaper Available Now
By jacki decoster on Dec 17, 2009
GlassFish Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) is a lightweight and agile integration platform for service oriented composite application development. Sun's ESB experts have just released an in-depth 42 page whitepaper titled “GlassFish Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) - High Availability and Clustering”
This whitepaper goes beyond just describing how to implement an ESB in a development
environment. Instead it covers how to move the ESB into mission-critical, high volume production and provides insight from experts who have successfully delivered real-world,
high performance middleware infrastructures.
First, the whitepaper gives an analysis of the key criteria needed to architect a highly available GlassFish ESB solution. Topics include: defining acceptable levels of downtime, degrees of allowable latency, divisions between semi-static and time-critical data and options for recovery. All of these requirements must be considered together to arrive at a solution. In addition, the whitepaper provides an examination of architecture and implementation considerations, which could affect not only the initial implementation, but future iterations as well.
Following this initial analysis, the whitepaper details a reference architecture for a typical deployment solution. The solution is based on a real-world scenario for a Web-based application to manage a customer’s business processes. The solution needs to accept requests via Web services-based interfaces, manage corresponding business processes, handle faults correct, integrate with existing backend systems and requires asynchronous message correlation.
