Message from luke.taylor@bristol.ac.uk

Hello,

Does anyone have any experience with Mule ESB (and if so, Tcat) from MuleSoft? Or, do you use any other 'simple' enterprise integration tools?

The University of Bristol would like to begin to investigate enterprise integration tools, which are:
  1. Simple to get started, but have potential to implement more sophisticated design patterns
  2. Don't cost the Earth
  3. Have support and training available

Thanks,

Luke

Hi luke

 

I don’t  have any information on mulesoft, though it’s on our radar as a possible ESB/SOA solution.

 

We are currently deploying Talend’s ESB plugin (based on apache camel), we already use Talend for batch mode data transfer  and now have use cases that demand webservice/ESB style integration. We selected Talend partly because it is relatively easy to get started with and has a nice GUI for setting up data processing and flows.  Talend comes in 2 flavours the free community version and the paid for enterprise version. We  have deployed the paid for enterprise version.....i’m not sure what “don’t cost the earth” means when talking ESBs ;-)  .....but I think Talend may meet that definition.

 

We have also used their training courses and are happy with our support relationship with them.

 

Happy to talk more about them, feel free to drop me a line

Thanks Cal, that's very helpful.

Looks like Talend ought to be another integration tool that we look at.

Good to see they have a UK presence.

I'll be in touch if we investigate further.

Regards,

Luke

Hi Luke,

We are just starting up an investigation into a complete SOA stack.  One of the stacks we are interested in comes from WS02 (http://wso2.com/)

They have knitted the apache stack together and provide a fairly complete solution including and ESB.  You can use there stack as PaaS, open source software or hire them for professional support.

ps.  There is a working group looking at SOA in HE in ITANA you might want to connect with.  https://spaces.internet2.edu/display/itana/SOA+Working+Group
