What is an Enterprise Service Bus?
An enterprise service bus (ESB) implements a communication system between mutually interacting software applications in a service-oriented architecture (SOA)
Add integrations to business software systems into the picture, and the whole thing can become a confusing mess.
Busby is a light-weight, broadcast specific implementation of an Enterprise Service Bus. Busby allows the creation of a loosely coupled system architecture by providing a common communication platform for a set of choreographed micro-services. Busby systems have a set of services and subscribers to and providers of those services. A distributed directory service manages configuration information and dynamic topology changes allowing active/standby and active/active service providers to be implemented.
Benefits of using an Enterprise Service Bus
Busby is divided in to services which make up six main groups.
Busby Core is at the heart of all Busby systems. It creates and manages the messaging layer between micro-services, and provides the core library of code on which we build our software. Click here for more information about Busby Core
