If you have Maven installed:
- Download the samples
- Unzip them
- At the command line, cd into the samples dir and enter: mvn install
- In your IDE of choice, set up the project from the root pom
If you are familiar with Enterprise Integration Patterns, here are some of the patterns implemented in each sample:
|Pattern / Sample||Event Driven Consumer||Polling Consumer||Message Filter||Message Translator||Content Based Router||Splitter||Aggregator||Channel Adapter||Messaging Gateway||Service Activator||Request/Reply|
From Mark Fisher’s Post:
*NOTE: All of the samples feature certain common patterns that are essential to the underlying Spring Integration core:
- Message: Spring Integration Messages encapsulate a POJO payload and a header Map (Reference).
- Message Channel: Spring Integration includes many Message Channel options for both point-to-point and publish-subscribe. Some include queues for buffering while others dispatch directly to subscribers (Reference).
- Message Endpoint: At a high level, this includes all components that connect to channels for input and/or output.
- Messaging Mapper: Spring Integration binds inbound Messages to method arguments and method return values to Message payloads and/or headers.
- Message Dispatcher: In Spring Integration, channels that do not have a queue use Message Dispatchers to invoke their subscribers.
- Pipes and Filters: This is the most general pattern describing Message-processing components connected in a loosely-coupled way via channels.
- Message Bus: Spring Integration essentially turns a Spring ApplicationContext into a lightweight Message Bus within which all of these other components are hosted.
