Patterns: Using Business Service Choreography In Conjunction With An Enterprise Service Bus

An IBM Redpaper publication


This IBM Redpaper describes the characteristics of business process
management (BPM) and then introduces some design concepts for using a
business service choreography (BSC) engine in conjunction with an Enterprise
Service Bus to implement BPM. It is assumed that the reader is familiar with the
following topics:

- Service-oriented architecture and the Enterprise Service Bus
- Web Services
- Process Integration patterns from the Patterns for e-business
- Service-oriented architecture patterns

Relevant information about these topics can be found in Chapters 3 and 4 of
Patterns: Implementing an SOA using an Enterprise Service Bus, SG24-6346.

In this Redpaper, we extend the SOA patterns. We define the way in which
Process Integration patterns in business service choreography design can be
used in conjunction with an Enterprise Service Bus to form composite SOA
