Chapter 8. Java Business Integration Terms


Java Business Integration, JBI
A specification for a standards-based, vendor-neutral architecture, based on SOA principles, for the integration of disparate applications, service providers, and service consumers. JBI-compliant components are expected to plug in and interoperate with other JBI-compliant components. This frees vendors to concentrate on supplying components that implement their particular area of expertise without worrying about implementing the other necessary portions of a complete solution. JBI also frees end-users to pick and choose among many JBI-compliant components to assemble a SOA network sized to their needs, without locking in to one vendor's approach. The JBI specification was developed by the Java Community Process. Compare with SCA.
