Open source middleware player Talend has released its ESB Studio Standard Edition (SE) and ESB Enterprise Edition (EE) for Data Services. Talend ESB Studio SE is a companion graphical user interface (GUI) for Talend's open source ESB products, which is used by developers to build integration processes.
Users can drag-and-drop basic integration components and connectors onto a graphical workspace, draw connections and relationships between them, and set specific properties.
This approach is designed to allow developers to simulate messaging routes from within the Talend ESB Studio SE and observe the execution flow, providing statistics on each aspect of the route that is executed for each message.
By providing a functional view of the actual integration processes, Talend ESB Studio SE significantly increases developer productivity, freeing users to focus on more complex tasks.
Talend ESB Studio SE also contains the Talend ESB Route Builder for the design of integration solutions based on Enterprise Integration Patterns (EIPs) — a standard set of integration templates used to address standard integration needs.
Built for use with the Apache Camel project as well as Talend ESB products, the Talend ESB Route Builder allows users to drag-and-drop EIPs onto a palette and configure them, eliminating the need to write code or use a domain-specific language (DSL).
Talend ESB Enterprise Edition (EE) for Data Services is an enterprise service bus (ESB) that allows development teams to holistically address integration projects — combining application integration and data management for complex, heterogeneous IT environments.
Talend ESB EE for Data Services frees data management processes that are traditionally bound to specific applications by abstracting them as standards-based services that can be reused by other applications. The reuse of data services across multiple applications maximizes the value of initial investments in standalone data integration solutions.
