Book Description

5 May 2006 0976694069 978-0976694069 1

Typical enterprises use dozens, hundreds, and sometimes even thousands of applications, components, services, and databases. Many of them are custom built in-house or by third parties, some are bought, others are based on open source projects, and the origin of a few--usually the most critical ones--is completely unknown.

A lot of applications are very old, some are fairly new, and seemingly no two of them were written using the same tools. They run on heterogeneous operating systems and hardware, use databases and messaging systems from various vendors, and were written in different programming languages.

See how to glue these disparate applications together using popular technologies such as:

  • LDAP, Oracle, and MySQL
  • XML Documents and DTDs
  • Sockets, HTTP, and REST
  • XML/RPC, SOAP, and others
  • ...and more.

If you're on the hook to integrate enterprise-class systems together, the tips and techniques in this book will help.

More About the Author

I am a software developer and a writer.

I got my first computer around 1982 and I loved to play video games. I became curious about how it all worked, so at age ten, I learned programming so I could write my own computer games. It became clear to me very early that I wanted to make a living from programming. Since 1993 I've worked as a professional software developer and I also create open source software.

I still love programming as much as I did that first day, and I decided to combine my love for programming and for writing. I started to write book reviews and articles for computer science magazines, and my first book was published in 2005. Since then I've written several books about Ruby programming, a bestselling book about creating electronics projects with the Arduino, and a book about the Raspberry Pi.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ruby in the Corporate World 8 April 2007
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Very useful book showing you various techniques - databases, XML, SOA, testing, deployment etc even things like how Ruby can work with Java. You need to know Ruby but the code is not unintelligible. This fits nicely with "Everyday Scripting" in turning you new knowledge of Ruby into a full toolkit to support your professional work.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great book once you have learnt Ruby and are trying to use it at work 4 July 2006
By Andrew Monkhouse - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I think this is a great book for someone who already knows a little bit about Ruby to learn how to use it within their heterogeneous environment.

Like most books that develop a continually growing sample application, this book is best read end-to-end. However each section can be read on it's own, allowing the reader to skip to the section most relevant at a given time. Each section has a very clearly defined purpose, and where possible Maik describes multiple ways of achieving a given goal, plus he explains potential pitfalls (all with a gentle humor and easy going style that makes this book a pleasure to read).

This is not a beginner's book - as identified on the back cover, and in the introductory text - you are expected to know some Ruby before attempting this book. However writing for a more skilled audience may be the reason for my only complaint: the assumption that the reader will be familiar with how to set up the environment(s) necessary to work through the examples. For example, there is no explanation of how to set up the Oracle tables or data - even a single sentence stating that SQL scripts could be found on the website would have made this a little more helpful. This is a very minor issue though, and unlikely to cause major problems for most readers.

This is a very good book, and one that I am likely to continually refer to for considerable time.

5.0 out of 5 stars great book 31 May 2006
By Markus Jais - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
this is a really great book. it is the perfect companion to

Programming Ruby. it explains in an very easy way how to use XML, SOAP, databases, LDAP and more with Ruby.

and there is a great chapter about rake.

the examples are easy to follow and the writing style is fun.

the book really shows what Ruby can do for your daily life as a programmer, but also shows where it still has it's limitations.

the author really knows his subject and I have found no

errors or typos in the book.

if you use Ruby, this book is highly recommended !!
