Integration Patterns

Integration Patterns

Integration Patterns explains how patterns were used to design and build an integration architecture within a representative customer scenario. The guide includes a catalog of 18 common integration patterns including implementations that use the Microsoft platform.


This guide is the third patterns release in the pattern & practices series from Microsoft. Building on the application patterns presented in Enterprise Solution Patterns Using Microsoft .NET, this guide applies patterns to solve integration problems within the enterprise.

The design concepts in this guide include implementations on the Microsoft platform that use BizTalk Server 2004, Host Integration Server 2004, ASP.NET, Visual Studio, Visio 2003 and the .NET Framework.

The scenario is an online bill payment application in the banking industry. To meet the needs of this scenario, the team used a pattern-based approach to build and validate a baseline architecture. Because a well-designed architecture must be traceable to the needs of the business, the guide also includes a set of artifacts that trace from high-level business processes down to code.
