IBM Systems Journal has a new issue, Real-Time and Event-Based Systems, that discusses topics in event-driven architecture (EDA) and complex event processing (CEP).
A couple of articles of interest:
- "Responsive systems: An introduction"
- "Event-processing network model and implementation"
- "Patterns for real-world-aware and real-time solutions"
One IBM product that implements the CEP part of EDA is WebSphere Business Events.
