Documents a significant body of knowledge on SOA.

From the Foreword by Gregor Hohpe, coauthor of "Enterprise Integration Patterns"

SOA Patterns provides architectural guidance through patterns and anti-patterns. It shows you how to build real SOA services that feature flexibility, availability, and scalability. Through an extensive set of patterns, this book identifies the major SOA pressure points and provides reusable techniques to address them. Each pattern pairs the classic problem/solution format with a unique technology map, showing where specific solutions fit into the general pattern.

About the Technology

The idea of service-oriented architecture is an easy one to grasp and yet developers and enterprise architects often struggle with implementation issues. Here are some of them:

  • How to get high availability and high performance
  • How to know a service has failed
  • How to create reports when data is scattered within multiple services
  • How to make loose coupling looser
  • How to solve authentication and authorization for service consumers
  • How to integrate SOA and the UI

About the book

SOA Patterns provides detailed, technology-neutral solutions to these challenges, and many others, using plain language. You'll understand the design patterns that promote and enforce flexibility, availability, and scalability. Each of the 26 patterns uses the classic problem/solution format and a unique technology map to show where specific solutions fit into the general pattern.

What's inside

  • Details more than 30 patterns for common SOA scenarios in the areas of security, performace, availability, UI integration, service aggregation and service interaction
  • Describes more than 20 SOA pitfalls to avoid
  • Spotlights the architecural perspective on SOA
  • Explains technology mapping from conceptual solution to current technologies
  • Provides extensive and practical advice on matching patterns to technologies

About the reader

Written for working developers and architects building services and service-oriented solutions. Knowledge of Java or C# is helpful but not required.

About the author

Arnon Rotem-Gal-Oz has over a decade of experience building SOA systems using Java and C#. He's a recognized authority in designing and architecting distributed systems in general and SOAs in particular.
