The course delivers an overview of JBoss Fuse Service Works and how SwitchYard fits within its components, followed by descriptions of several SwitchYard-supplied components that simplify service implementations, including JavaBean, Camel, Rules, and Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN). This is followed by the description and usage of many gateways and bindings which permit the developers to interact between the SwitchYard environment and the "outside world." Examples of these gateway/bindings include HTTP, SOAP, SQL, REST, messaging (JMS), mail, and more. The next topics include the use of Validators and Transformations to mediate message content as it flows through an integration scenario, as well as testing/debugging techniques. Security is covered in a separate chapter of the course.
