INSPIRE directive prepared rules how to integrate several different geodata sources. If
the sources are available according to the rules, anyone can create a tool generally
named geoportal. A geoportal allows to access different geodata sources via one logical
access point. This kind of tool is a typical example of geoinformation systems
integration. Such integration can be done in many specific ways. When dealing with
information systems integration we always looking for solution that will be the most
efficient. There are several ways of integration very nicely and in detail described by
Gregor Hohpe and Bobby Woolf in the excellent book Enterprise Integration Patterns.
To select the best option is very difficult. We have decided to research one possible
option in the area of GeoWeb services. This option based on Enterprise Service Bus
(ESB) is quite new even for integration based on non geospatial services. The paper will
discus one example when is probably efficient to use ESB and one example when the
usage of ESB will not be very efficient (may not be even effective). There is a second
step, in a case of selection of ESB way, to select appropriate software tool. For research
purposes were analysed three main open source solutions: MULE ESB, Service Mix
and Open ESB. The paper is going to describe each of them very briefly and compare
them from selected points of view. The last part of the paper will be focused on
description of a prototype that allows plug-in GeoWeb Services into ESB selected for
the research, which is MULE ESB.
