Welcome to Talend ESB SE!

Talend ESB SE bundles Service Factory + Integration Factory, 
Service Locator, Service Activity Monitoring and a demo application 
to a stable, production ready distribution based on the industry leading 
open source frameworks Apache CXF and Apache Camel. 
It includes Web Service support based on JAX-WS and enables simple and scalable
massage based systems using well known Enterprise Integration Patterns.
The Service Locator maintains a repository of service endpoints which 
can be used by Service Consumers to support simple fail over and load 
balancing scenarios. Service Activity Monitoring allows to log and 
monitor service calls. A documented Car Rental demo application illustrates
how to use these features.

Getting Started 

The Getting Started Guide can be found in a separate documentation package in the docs
folder. It illustrates all features of Talend ESB using example applications. 

The examples are documented individually and include instructions for building
and running each example with just a few command lines. See below for obtaining 
the examples.

If you need more help try talking to us on our forums:

Talend ESB SE provides several examples in a separate documentation package in 
the examples folder. The example applications and tutorials demonstrate functionality 
and advanced features of Talend ESB SE.
The examples demonstrate how to use different functionality including:
*       Advanced WebServices with Camel 
*       Security configuration within OSGi 
*       Use of blueprint to define routes 
*       Rent a Car demo 
*       Locator sample 
*       Monitoring sample 

OSGi Container

The container subdirectory contains a preconfigured OSGi container that 
contains all the required OSGi bundles for the CXF 3rd party dependencies.
It also includes Apache Karaf to provide easy administration and 
configuration. For more information about OSGi and Apache 
Karaf see .

OSGi provides a mature, open standards based, highly modular framework for 
managing component dependencies, service invocation, and lifecycles. It is 
the basis for Eclipse and provides a lightweight alternative to more 
monolithic JEE containers while still retaining the powerful management 
features necessary for the enterprise.

Service Locator
The Service Locator in the add-ons directory is a service that provides its consumers with a mechanism 
to discover service endpoints at run time. The Service Locator consists of two parts: 
An Endpoint repository and a CXF feature used to configure the use of the Service Locator 
at provider and consumer side. Like any standard CXF feature, the ServiceLocator Feature is configured 
separately for the service provider side and service consumer side. The provider side Locator Feature 
extension registers and deregisters service endpoints in the endpoint repository when the provider 
becomes available or unavailable. The consumer side Locator Feature extension transparently retrieves 
service endpoint addresses from the endpoint repository when a service call to a provider is to be made.

Service Activity Monitoring
The Service Activity Monitoring (SAM) in the add-ons directory allows to log / monitor service calls 
done with the Apache CXF Framework. Typical use cases are usage statistics and fault monitoring. 
The solution consists of two parts: Agent (sam-agent) and Monitoring Server (sam-server). 
The Agent creates events out of the requests and replies on service consumer and provider side. 
The events are first collected locally and then sent to the monitoring server periodically to not disturb 
the normal message flow. The Monitoring Server receives events from the Agent, optionally filters/handlers 
events and stores them into a Database.

Talend Service Factory

Talend Service Factory uses the industry leading 
open source Apache CXF implementation of JAX-WS to help you service enable 
your existing applications and interfaces. The CXF lightweight, modular 
architecture is based on Spring, so it will work with your application 
regardless of the platform on which it is running. It will run on 
stand-alone JVM applications, as part of a servlet container such as 
Tomcat, within a JEE server, or in an OSGi container such as Equinox.

Talend Integration Factory

Talend Integration Factory is a fully supported,
stable, production ready distribution based on the industry leading open
source integration framework Apache Camel. Apache Camel uses well known 
Enterprise Integration Patterns to make message based system 
integration simpler yet powerful and scalable. 
Talend Integration Factory includes
an impressive set of available components for all commonly used protocols 
like http, https, ftp, xmpp, rss and many more. A large number of data
formats like EDI, JSON, CSV, HL7 and languages like JS, Python, 
Scala, are supported out of the box. Its extensible architecture
allows developers to easily add support for proprietary protocols
and data formats.

Apache CXF

Talend ESB contains a complete version of Apache CXF, the industry 
leading open source solution for web services. It also includes value
added components such as OSGi container and several new examples.
For more information about Apache CXF see .
CXF supports Web Services using 
SOAP with full WS-*functionality including support for WS-Addressing,
WS-Reliable Messaging, and WS-Security over both HTTP and JMS transports.
CXF's elegantly simple architecture allows declarative, policy-centric 
support of these qualities of service through configuration rather than 
code. It also supports non-SOAP bindings including REST. CXF open 
standards and portability enable you to deliver interoperability for 
your applications to maximize the value of your application to your users.

Apache Camel
Apache Camel uses well known Enterprise Integration Patterns to make 
message based system integration simpler yet powerful and scalable.
It uses a lightweight, component based architecture 
which allows a great flexibility in deployment scenarios: as stand-alone
JVM applications or embedded in a servlet container such as Tomcat,
or within a JEE server, or in an OSGi container such as Equinox.
