5.0 out of 5 stars The missing piece in the enterprise patterns jigsaw, 17 Nov 2011
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Service Design Patterns: Fundamental Design Solutions for SOAP/WSDL and RESTful Web Services (Addison-Wesley Signature) (Hardcover)
All the books in Martin Fowler's are excellent. Two in particular are pretty much de-facto reading material for anyone working on enterprise scale applications: "Enterprise Integration Patterns" and "Patterns of Enterprise Application Architecture". However noticeble by their absence are patterns which directly address the design of services - a gap that is confidently filled by this book.

As with most patterns books, there will be much familiar material for experienced developers and architects - but to think that that makes it an uninteresting book would be to miss the point. The book provides well written, clear, descriptions of the patterns and the contexts in which they should be applied (or not) - enabling more informed analysis and clearer communication between practitioners.

All in all, if you're creating distributed applications that involve (typically web) services then this book should be a must read.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read for service architecture, 9 Feb 2012
This review is from: Service Design Patterns: Fundamental Design Solutions for SOAP/WSDL and RESTful Web Services (Addison-Wesley Signature) (Hardcover)
I wish this book had been available 4 years ago. Robert has put names and descriptions to patterns that I've have been describing to the architecture community at my employer with some success. Now I can point to the pattern and scale up because of the encapsulation of the ideas in a single volume.

A must read for anyone embarking on the SOA journey.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good patterns book but..., 26 Jan 2014

It could have done with a bit more lower level detail on contract design. Aside from that it has good coverage of the high level concepts you need to think about when designing integrations and B2B interfaces
