Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) is at the heart of a revolutionary computing platform that is being adopted world-wide and has earned the support of every major software provider. In Service-Oriented Architecture: Concepts, Technology, and Design, Thomas Erl presents the first end-to-end tutorial that provides step-by-step instructions for modeling and designing service-oriented solutions from the ground up.
Erl uses more than 125 case study examples and over 300 diagrams to illuminate the most important facets of building SOA platforms: goals, obstacles, concepts, technologies, standards, delivery strategies, and processes for analysis and design.
His book's broad coverage includes
Detailed step-by-step processes for service-oriented analysis and service-oriented design
An in-depth exploration of service-orientation as a distinct design paradigm, including a comparison to object-orientation
A comprehensive study of SOA support in .NET and J2EE development and runtime platforms
Descriptions of over a dozen key Web services technologies and WS-* specifications, including explanations of how they interrelate and how they are positioned within SOA
The use of "In Plain English" sections, which describe complex concepts through non-technical analogies
Guidelines for service-oriented business modeling and the creation of specialized service abstraction layers
A study contrasting past architectures with SOA and reviewing current industry influences
Project planning and the comparison of different SOA delivery strategies
The goal of this book is to help you attain a solid understanding of what constitutes contemporary SOA along with step-by-step guidance for realizing its successful implementation.
