Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Service-Oriented Architecture: Concepts, Technology, and Design (Prentice Hall Service-Oriented Computing Series from Thomas Erl) (Hardcover)
Really appalling introduction to SOA and for my money if you want to learn about SOA then Enterprise SOA (Dirk Krafzig, Karl Banke, Dirk Slama) is far better.
I also question the whole approach to SOA that Erl takes, the enterprise services approach with lots of upfront design is not a style of SOA that I think can work in many places. I'd therefore recommend that if you do read this book you actively seek out other opinions, including searching for views on "entity services" and how SOA can be used within an agile process.
