Tuscany SCA is a technology-neutral infrastructure for building composite applications based on the Service Component Architecture standard. It manages the protocols and other application plumbing, enabling you to focus on business logic and the relationship between services. The resulting applications are more flexible, scalable, and maintainable.

Tuscany SCA in Action is a comprehensive, hands-on guide for developing technology-agnostic, extensible applications. By following a travel-booking example throughout the book, you'll learn how to model, compose, deploy, and manage applications using SCA. The book emphasizes practical concerns, like effectively using Tuscany's supported bindings and protocols and integrating with standard technologies like Spring and JMS to save development time and cost.


This book is for developers interested in service-oriented applications. No experience with Tuscany or SCA is required.
