There are two Manning Early-Access Books (MEAP) that are getting close to full release.   They revolve around the enterprise technologies, Enterprise Integration Patterns (EIP) and Business Process Management (BPM) and written by well known authors in the communities.  Both include associated source code.


Camel in Action, Second Edition, is packed full of examples and explanations of concepts with over 900 pages.  It is written by Claus Ibsen and Jonathan Anstey.  I am excited to read through all the sections, but more specifically the out in the wild section that contains:

                • Microservices with Docker and Kubernetes
                • Camel Tooling
                • Camel and IoT
                • Reactive Camel

The description for the book is below and is a great addition to a technical library:


Camel in Action, Second Edition is the most complete Camel book on the market. This updated tutorial is full of small examples showing how to work with the integration patterns. It starts with core concepts like sending, receiving, routing, and transforming data. It then shows you the entire lifecycle and goes in depth on how to test, deal with errors, scale, deploy, and monitor your app and even how to build custom tooling - details you can find only in the Camel code itself. Written by core developers of Camel and the authors of the first edition, this book distills their experience and practical insights so that you can tackle integration tasks like a pro.


Effective Business Process Management with JBoss BPM, provides shortened working examples and is written by Eric Schabell.  I look forward to reading through the complex business rules section, in addition to the rest, and trying the examples.  The description for the book below and would another great addition to a technical library:
