Currently, business requirements for rapid operational efficiency, customer responsiveness as well as rapid adaptability are driving the need for ever increasing communication and integration capabilities of the software assets. Enterprise Application Integration (EAI), which is the process of integrating enterprise systems with existing applications and in general distributed computing, have produced diverse integration techniques and approaches to undertake these challenges. This has brought the development of Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) variants, which is partly supported by commonly accepted standards that ensure interoperability, sharing and reusability. As a result of this, a safer and faster level of return on investment (ROI) can be generated while inter-software communication and integration has becomes ever easier. In this paper we discuss ESB and evaluate the concept against already existing broker architectures and paradigms.
