An endpoint describes how application code communicates with the messaging framework. An endpoint also hides the complexity of interacting with the messaging system, allowing the developer to focus on the business logic instead of the details of how to send and receive messages. In previous chapters, we discussed the many endpoints that connect with directly with the Spring Integration Framework. These endpoints include transformers (discussed in Chapter 7), and routers, splitters, aggregators, and messaging bridges (discussed in Chapter 8). In this chapter we will focus on the endpoints that connect to the message channels, application code, external applications, and services. These include channel adapters, services activators, and messaging gateways. Finally, the topic of how secure and send messages to a secure message channel will be covered.
