Open Source SOA

You can build a world-class SOA infrastructure entirely using popular, andmature, open-source applications. Unfortunately, the technical documentationfor most open-source projects focuses on a specific product, the big SOA picture.You're left to your own devices to figure out how to cobble together a fullsolution from the various bits. In other words, unless you already know howMule and Tuscany work with jBPM, you're stuck.

Open Source SOA shows readers how to build an entire SOA application usingopen-source technologies. It shows readers how to apply key ideas like EnterpriseService Bus (ESB) design and Business Process Management (BPM) and learnthe tools and techniques to implement them effectively.

To pull everything together, the author describes real-life case studies from hisown work to tie together all the principles and practices. These hard-to-find casestudies are pure gold for the reader, as most developers keep these trade secretsto themselves.

Purchase of the print book comes with an offer of a free PDF, ePub, and Kindle eBook from Manning. Also available is all code from the book.
