  • Question

  • We have ten systems in our enterprise and all of them are developed in .Net.
    We need to setup an integration between these systems.Please note that all systems exposes webservices.
    We need a funtionality in which if one system changes, all the systems who want to capture this event should get this event.
    Somebody advised us to use ESB for this, but we think that ESB will be too much for this.
    Should be develop an publish/subscriber or observer pattern based intermediatory comapny in between these system to achieve integration between these systems with event capturing.
    Please advice based on your experience

    Thanks
    Thompson

  • Pub/sub is the pattern to use for this scenario. Nice thing about an ESB is that it is configuration based. You might want to look at BizTalk as the infrastructural component for the pub/sub mechanism. BizTalk is also positioned within the Microsoft ESB guidance, so you can add ESB services as you go.
