Open Source SOA
At some point, code will be written, software tools will be acquired and systems will be built. Unfortunately the Java development world is a confused mess as it relates to a method of building a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA)-based anything. Our objective is to answer the following questions: Should I use Web Services everywhere? Is an Enterprise Services Bus (ESB) useful and required? Should I be programming in the XML-based syntax of BPEL instead of Java? Do I need JBI and/or SCA? What Open Source implementations are available to solve SOA related challenges?
This session will dive into the actual patterns and code used to SOA "enable" your current applications and skills. Attendees gain insight into techniques and patterns that will allow the typical Struts, Spring & Hibernate developers to move toward the use of SOA. Most importantly, attendees leave this session with practical skills necessary to live in the new Service Oriented world. Students learn to leverage the capabilities of J2EE/Java EE as well as the most popular open source frameworks to create new enterprise integration applications.
