The Definitive Guide to SOA: Oracle (R) Service Bus, Second Edition targets professional software developers and architects who know enterprise development but are new to enterprise service buses (ESBs) and service-oriented architecture (SOA) development. This is the first book to cover a practical approach to SOA using the BEA AquaLogic Service Bus tool. And it's written from the "source"-BEA Systems AquaLogic product lead Jeff Davies.
This book provides hands-on information to developing SOA-driven applications with ESBs as central components.
It also gives strategic guidance on SOA planning, web service life-cycle management, administration of an ESB, and security considerations.
Author Jeff Davies is careful to cut through theory and get straight to demonstrating successful use of the product.
