Designing Under the Influence of Speech Acts: A Strategy for Composing Enterprise Integration Solutions
Designing enterprise-wide integration solutions remains a difficult task. Enterprise Integration Patterns (EIP)  provide possible design solutions that may be used to compose enterprise-wide integration solutions. Because of the multitude of platforms on which legacy systems are implemented, these composed solutions must ensure platform-independent implementation, e.g. with web services. A promising mechanism that allows this path is conversation models  that may be used to implement interactions among web services that represent different legacy systems. For this translation to occur, though, EIPs must be converted into a representation that is amenable to a conversation models.
