The first step to forming an effective working relationship with SOA design patterns is attaining a sound comfort level with pattern-related terminology and notation. This provides us with the knowledge required to navigate through the upcoming chapters with insight as to how the patterns can be applied individually and in various combinations.
Purpose of this Introductory Chapter
This important chapter covers these fundamental topics and further describes how design pattern descriptions are organized into standardized profiles. The remaining sections single out specific pattern types and discuss some common design considerations.
