Since the release of the first edition of the book in 2016, SAP Cloud Platform Integration was significantly enhanced. The new edition of the book (by John Mutumba Bilay, Peter Gutsche, Mandy Krimmel and Volker Stiehl, with a foreword by Björn Goerke) reflects this fact.
With nearly double the number of pages as compared to the first edition, the second edition of the book provides detailed information on new topic areas:
- Business-to-business (B2B) integration: A dedicated chapter covers new concepts and features that support the design and operation of B2B scenarios – such like the Partner Directory which you can use to parameterize integration flows when building a larger business network on top of Cloud Integration, and the Integration Content Advisor, an intelligent tool that helps you to efficiently develop B2B interfaces and mappings based on a machine learning and crowd-intelligence approach.
- Reliable messaging using the JMS adapter: Using Java Messaging Service (JMS) resources in your integration scenarios allows you to increase reliability of message processing by asynchronously decoupling inbound from outbound communication. A detailed tutorial shows you how to use this feature.
- A new chapter shows you how you can use application programming interfaces (APIs) to work with the integration platform.
- New integration design capabilities have been introduced that support various new ways to manage integration content such as transporting integration flows from one tenant to another one, handling versions of integration flows, adapters, and integration flow steps, using dynamic parameters to be resolved at runtime, and many more. These features are covered by detailed tutorials.
- The monitoring application has been improved to support many more options for the integration developer to operate your integration scenarios and to analyze error situations.
- New public key infrastructure functions significantly facilitate the management of keys for the secure setup of connections between Cloud Integration and remote systems. The chapter about security contains detailed instructions how to use these new features.
The book is designed in a way that it is a valuable source both for the topic beginner and the topic expert. Starting in Chapter 2 with a step-by-step instruction how to design and run your first, most simple integration flow, the following chapters subsequently add more features and complexity. That way, the topic beginner who likes to get started with SAP Cloud Platform Integration will smoothly be introduced into the concepts and tools.
Furthermore, the book provides a rich variety of sophisticated use cases and tutorials which will also keep the topic expert busy and curious.
