Workflow Systems: Myths,
Truths and Wishful Thinking - Brandon Satrom
If workflow is simply about the coordination of
work, why is it such a point of contention for most technologists? Do workflow
systems really enable a Business Analysts to change a production process, or are
they a waste of time and resources, not to mention a problem that a solid
developer could solve with a hundred lines of code? The goal of this talk is to
demystify the idea of "workflow," and to discuss what place, if any, a Workflow
System might have in your problem domain. We'll discuss Workflow Systems by
example with Microsoft's Workflow Foundation tools (3.x and 4.0) and explore
popular, low-ceremony options for doing "workflow" (NServiceBus, MassTransit,
etc.). We'll end the session with an open discussion on workflow tools and
collaboratively craft some tactical recommendations on when and why to use
workflow in your organization.
Integration Patterns As Your Camel Jockey - Bruce
The revered Enterprise Integration Patterns
(EIP) book is indispensable for handling messaging-based integration. But
utilizing these patterns in your own code can be tedious if you have to write
the code from scratch every single time. Wouldn't it be nice if you had a simple
API to make the use of these patterns easier? Enter Apache Camel, an integration
framework that provides a straightforward path to implementing the EIP patterns.
Using Camel's POJO-based approach and it's Domain Specific Languages (DSLs) for
expressing message routes, the complexity of integrations is decreased
This talk will explain the EIP patterns,
walking through many example implementations using Apache Camel via both its
Java DSL and its Spring DSL. So come take a Camel ride!
