Main description

Foreword by Ray Harishankar, IBM Fellow

"There are many books on the market on the topic of SOA and SOA's business and technology value. This book focuses on one of the key technical values of SOA and does an excellent job of describing SOA-based application integration by clarifying the relationship and patterns of SOA with other integration technologies in a distributed computing environment." Sandra Carter, IBM Vice President for SOA, BPM, and WebSphere Marketing

"Services Oriented Architectures present many challenges today in the integration of existing systems and new systems, along with many times, old legacy mainframe applications. This book successfully addresses many of the complexities we see in the integration of SOA and mainframe legacy applications, presenting options and approaches to integrate the applications with the rest of the enterprise. The author takes a clearly defined pattern-based approach discussing the advantages, tools and methods. Readers will benefit from the insights in this book whether they play the architect role or a developer role on a SOA project." Sue Miller-Sylvia, IBM Fellow and Application Development Service Area Leader

Implement Service-Oriented Architecture Across the Enterprise

Transform your existing IT infrastructure into a unified, highly scalable computing landscape with the latest SOA integration technologies. Using straightforward explanations and code samples, SOA-Based Enterprise Integration explains how to deploy service-oriented connectivity solutions that fit your organization's needs. Get details on configuring packaged software from SAP, Oracle, Siebel, PeopleSoft, and IBM, integrating mainframe applications, and developing web services. You'll also learn how to implement a custom Enterprise Service Bus (ESB), overcome format and protocol mismatches, and optimize QoS.

  • Connect applications using common databases, sockets, and RPCs
  • Reuse code with distributed objects and ORBs
  • Manage distributed objects and applications using CORBA and Java RMI
  • Use asynchronous messaging to handle large transaction volumes
  • Overcome heterogeneity and mismatch issues using web services
  • Perform content- and context-based routing with ESB technology
  • Integrate mainframe and packaged applications using adapters and brokers
  • Work with XML, SOAP, WSDL, and UDDI
  • Develop web services with Java/J2EE
  • Compose business processes using BPEL
