Apache ServiceMix ESB

Many development projects require some form of integration with existing services or resources, either inside the company or for exchanging information with business partners. Apache ServiceMix is an integration platform which brings together a set of popular open-source technologies. This course introduces you to the basics of OSGi, Apache Karaf, Apache Camel and Apache CXF and explains how to choose the right mix of technologies for your project.


No public sessions are currently scheduled. We will be pleased to set up an on-site course or to schedule an extra public session (in case of a sufficient number of candidates). Interested? Please let us know.
