Monitoring and management support is one of the most important requirements for maintaining enterprise integration. As discussed throughout this book, integration implementations have the potential to span completely different business areas across the enterprise, touching various services and applications that may be supported by different groups and technologies. The potential of taking the entire enterprise down as a result of a single application going down has lead to asynchronous, loosely coupled communication between the various endpoints. Thus, a single application’s failure will not adversely affect all the other systems in an enterprise due to direct dependences. However, as a result, management and monitoring support must move beyond simple exception handling to a more comprehensive monitoring and feedback mechanism.
