Product Description

From the Back Cover

Web services is the integration technology preferred by organizations implementing service-oriented architectures. I would recommend that anybody involved in application development obtain a working knowledge of these technologies, and I'm pleased to recommend Erl's book as a great place to begin.

―Tom Glover, Senior Program Manager, Web Services Standards, IBM Software Group, and Chairman of the Web Services Interoperability Organization (WS-I).

 

An excellent guide to building and integrating XML and Web services, providing pragmatic recommendations for applying these technologies effectively. The author tackles numerous integration challenges, identifying common mistakes and providing guidance needed to get it right the first time. A valuable resource for understanding and realizing the benefits of service-oriented architecture in the enterprise.

―David Keogh, Program Manager, Visual Studio Enterprise Tools, Microsoft.

 

Leading-edge IT organizations are currently exploring second generation web service technologies, but introductory material beyond technical specifications is sparse. Erl explains many of these emerging technologies in simple terms, elucidating the difficult concepts with appropriate examples, and demonstrates how they contribute to service-oriented architectures. I highly recommend this book to enterprise architects for their shelves.

―Kevin P. Davis, Ph. D., Software Architect.

 

Service-oriented integration with less cost and less risk

  

The emergence of key second-generation Web services standards has positioned service-oriented architecture (SOA) as the foremost platform for contemporary business automation solutions. The integration of SOA principles and technology is empowering organizations to build applications with unprecedented levels of flexibility, agility, and sophistication (while also allowing them to leverage existing legacy environments).

 

This guide will help you dramatically reduce the risk, complexity, and cost of integrating the many new concepts and technologies introduced by the SOA platform. It brings together the first comprehensive collection of field-proven strategies, guidelines, and best practices for making the transition toward the service-oriented enterprise.

 

Writing for architects, analysts, managers, and developers, Thomas Erl offers expert advice for making strategic decisions about both immediate and long-term integration issues. Erl addresses a broad spectrum of integration challenges, covering technical and design issues, as well as strategic planning.

  • Covers crucial second-generation (WS-*) Web services standards: BPEL4WS, WS-Security, WS-Coordination, WS-Transaction, WS-Policy, WS-ReliableMessaging, and WS-Attachments
  • Includes hundreds of individual integration strategies and more than 60 best practices for both XML and Web services technologies
  • Includes a complete tutorial on service-oriented design principles for business and technical modeling
  • Explores design issues related to a wide variety of service-oriented integration architectures that integrate XML and Web services into legacy and EAI environments
  • Provides a clear roadmap for planning a long-term migration toward a standardized service-oriented enterprise

Service-oriented architecture is no longer an exclusive discipline practiced only by expensive consultants. With this book's help, you can plan, architect, and implement your own service-oriented environments-efficiently and cost-effectively.

About the Author

Thomas Erl is a best-selling IT author and founder of CloudSchool.com™ andSOASchool.com®. Thomas has been the world's top-selling service technology author for over five years and is the series editor of the Prentice Hall Service Technology Series from Thomas Erl (www.servicetechbooks.com ), as well as the editor of the Service Technology Magazine (www.servicetechmag.com). With over 175,000 copies in print world-wide, his eight published books have become international bestsellers and have been formally endorsed by senior members of major IT organizations, such as IBM, Microsoft, Oracle, Intel, Accenture, IEEE, HL7, MITRE, SAP, CISCO, HP, and others.

 

Four of his books, Cloud Computing: Concepts, Technology & Architecture, SOA Design Patterns, SOA Principles of Service Design, and SOA Governance, were authored in collaboration with the IT community and have contributed to the definition of cloud computing technology mechanisms, the service-oriented architectural model and service-orientation as a distinct paradigm. Thomas is currently working with over 20 authors on several new books dedicated to specialized topic areas such as cloud computing, Big Data, modern service technologies, and service-orientation.

 

As CEO of Arcitura Education Inc. and in cooperation with CloudSchool.com™ andSOASchool.com®, Thomas has led the development of curricula for the internationally recognized SOA Certified Professional (SOACP) and Cloud Certified Professional (CCP) accreditation programs, which have established a series of formal, vendor-neutral industry certifications.

 

Thomas is the founding member of the SOA Manifesto Working Group and author of the Annotated SOA Manifesto (www.soa-manifesto.com). He is a member of the Cloud Education & Credential Committee, SOA Education Committee, and he further oversees theSOAPatterns.org and CloudPatterns.org initiatives, which are dedicated to the on-going development of master pattern catalogs for service-oriented computing and cloud computing.

Thomas has toured over 20 countries as a speaker and instructor for public and private events, and regularly participates in international conferences, including SOA, Cloud + Service Technology Symposium and Gartner events. Over 100 articles and interviews by Thomas have been published in numerous publications, including the Wall Street Journal and CIO Magazine.

Format: Paperback
Erl's book is magnificent. Most software developers and architects will be aware to some degree or another of the hype surrounding Service-Oriented Architectures, but relatively few people will actually be doing it and even the ones who are will be asking themeselves if they are doing it properly. The vast majority of software developers/architects will be asking themselves why and how? Erl answers these questions very comprehensively. Erl compares and contrasts common application and enterprise integration architectures and demonstrates why a SOA approach is a viable alternative. He then provides a series of best practice guides to show you exactly how. This is the first book you should buy to get up to speed in this field. It is technology agnostic and is as relevant to the J2EE community as its is to the .NET community.

A good general overview of using relatively current (as it is a fast moving target) XML and Web Services standards for Service-Oriented Architectures. Can recommend the book and my only dis-like is that Erl tries to create a lot of his own brand of terminology for SOA.

After being hearing all kinds of hype about SOA all over the place, I decided to take a plunge into this apparently new paradigm. I have to say that although I was previously rather fluent with xml and related technologies, Erl's book gave a sufficiently deep insight into such a complex matter. Maybe, being a .Net practitioner, I would have relished some .Net oriented approach, but I have to admit that Erl's neutral approach is much better, allowing you to see the whole picture without marring you with technology details pertaining to a concrete implementation. All in all, an excellent buy and a book you'll sure revisit after having read it, for concepts that may blur with time in your memory. Recommended.
The only thing is that some of the drawings are a bit too obvious, and big, and could have been done away with so the book could be 20 or 30 pages less.

Buying the other soa book by Erl soon.

Obviously on the matter of SOA etc, everybody knows Erl is one of the gurus and this is a dense and interesting book (dense for me because I have no background in this and used it as an intro: in that it is more or less ok).
What I fail to understand is this common mistake by authors who pick up examples in French and make language mistakes (pages 286 and 369 for example). It is surely a minor point but this is ridiculous, can't Prentice-Hall afford a native speaker to review this ?
