I started reading this because while working on a small app using Event Sourcing, I realised I was building an increasingly complex messaging system and rediscovering a lot of design decisions I knew must have already been resolved. My interest isn't in integration at all, but software built using messaging internally.

This is a long book but surprisingly easy to read, and engaging enough to read cover-to-cover. It works up from fundamental primitives like Message, Message Endpoint and Message Ch
I wasn't really expecting to enjoy this book as much as I did but it is packed full of really useful information. I've worked on a few systems that used enterprise-level messaging and I thought I had a good handle on the space but I picked up the book anyway just to deepen my knowledge. I am really glad that I did. It is very apparent that the authors have been involved in a variety of integrations and have managed to convert their experience into patterns. The book does a good job of balancing ...more
A very thorough compedium of integration patterns with a focus on messaging integration style. It is written in a very clear way, covering a wide spectrum of approaches oneself can face while pondering integration project within IT organization based on messaging. A must read for anyone who works with EAI, ESB, SOA platforms and consider to connect various systems and software products.

It covers 65 integration patterns and it introduces an iconic pattern language often called "GregorGrams". Eac
I was debating whether to give this three or four stars and decided that it was a solid three. The book is well-written and very thorough (over 600 pages of content), but I do wish it had some more concrete examples with supporting code. Some of the patterns built on other patterns or were permutations of other patterns in the book, which got me wondering whether a solid understanding of the underlying principles in the Gang of Four book is the extent of the pattern knowledge you need, and this ...more

Uno de los mejores libros que leí. Deberia ser parte obligada de la formación de todo ingeniero de sistemas.
Lo he leido 2 o 3 veces y cada vez que estoy frente a un problema de diseño, lo releo y termino encontrando algún tipo de guía que me permite resolver el problema.
500% recomendado!!!

This is a classic but still relevant work on messaging systems.
Helped me a lot during study of Spring integration framework which uses vocabulary and patterns from the book.
Very good reading even if you plan to work with such messaging solutions like Actors.
Arturo Moreno
The best (and only?) book about integration patterns. Most of the patterns are related to messaging, but it's clear that they could be applied in other contexts as well.

A must read if you work on integration projects or messaging in general.
Good read. Disappointed somehow by the lack of patterns in relation to workflows and business logic when it comes to messaging. I would say that 80% of the book is things that probably you won't have to implement yourself nowadays unless you build your own enterprise messaging bus.

I enjoyed learning about the patterns which are applicable to business processes such as the 'process manager', the 'aggregator', the 'routing slip' and 'scatter-gather'.
Phil Wilkins
This is the definitive reference book for integration patterns. If you're integrating systems through messaging, ESBs or any other form of middleware it is a must have book.
Evan Hoff
This book serves two purposes: first, if you've never been introduced to messaging-based systems, it's a paradigm changer. Secondly, it serves as a great reference book for building messaging-based systems. This is another book I wish more developers had taken a look at.
While many of these techniques are billed as being for gluing together heterogeneous "enterprise" systems, I actually find the patterns described as being essential to building any large distributed system.
I wish if I could read this book 10 years ago!
Contains a set of widely spread, commonly used patterns. A lot of solutions for middleware projects. Highly recommended for architects.
My only introduction to managing really complex systems, but, man, I could not imagine a clearer book. Three cheers for Gregor!
John George
Excellent book a good introduction to messaging in general for all beginners and professionals...
