Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

You need more than theory to make SOA work.

You need this practical guide.

The challenge today's IT professionals face is not how to build a service. It's how to build a quality service, based on solid design principles and integrated into an architecture that enhances overall business processes. If you are a systems architect or designer, a business analyst, or an IT manager, this book gives you the architecture and design principles along with a methodology that empowers you to meet that challenge. Here are the tools you need to develop services that deliver the benefits of SOA.

  • Understand how SOA provides improved flexibility, reduced costs, and competitive advantages

  • Examine the overall enterprise context, architectural layers, domain-specific concepts, and essential service characteristics

  • Learn how to align SOA with your business, identify services, and create solutions

  • Explore business architecture and business process modeling

  • See how to design service interfaces and implementations

  • Create enterprise services that integrate existing applications and data

  • Create enterprise solutions from existing services

  • Apply security blueprints for determining and implementing appropriate safeguards

  • Utilize successful techniques for flexible servicecomposition and semantic interoperability

  • Prepare to effectively manage your projects, utilizing best practices and strategies for SOA management and governance

  • Benefit from detailed case study examples

I found this book valuable for providing a solid approach to designing service oriented architectures. It is important for people to understand that this book does not focus on implementing web services - there are plenty of other books that do that. This book focuses on the hard parts - how to design an architecture around the concept of services.
This book is also not a "cookbook" - it does not offer easy answers to these tough problems. Instead it walks you through the thought process so you can learn how to come up with the right answers yourself.
I am actively using this book to help my customers get started with SOA and to help them avoid common design pitfalls. My favorite chapter is Chapter 9: Using Services to Build Enterprise Solutions. The distinction between today's monolothic applications and tomorrow's composite applications requires a paradigm shift that the authors express well.
Finally, I especially liked the practical approach, practical steps and practical advice continually peppered throughout the entire book.

I have not seen a SOA book that is as practical as this one. Most of the people I work with understand why SOA is important, and we all get the vision by now. Many of the other popular SOA books ONLY focus on the vision and "what is SOA?" but not much else.

This book is different. It provides details. It focuses on architecture, design, and provides in-depth guidance for a wide variety of problem areas that we all encounter when we build SOA implementations. The book is a long one, but it is worth the read.

I really enjoyed reading this book which will probably appeal to both IT managers and Enterprise Architects. It has a nice balance between the strategy aspect of SOA and its technical side. The key concepts are well defined and clearly illustrated.

For those planning to introduce SOA in their organization - or those who just want to know more on the topic- this book is definitely a must have!

Format: Paperback
I just recently read through Applied SOA, and I found it to be one of the most practical and comprehensive SOA books out there. What I thought was especially helpful were all of the examples - specifically some of stories of where SOA implementations have gone wrong, how they were corrected, and how to avoid traps. I especially appreciated the in-depth case studies at the end of the book. I haven't seen many books that offer such a practical approach, and that is why this book stands out.

I thought that Part 1 of the book is good for those new to SOA, and I found that the rest of the book provides great guidance and detail for more seasoned architects. I liked the chapters on "Using Services to Build Enterprise Solutions" and "Designing and Using Integration in SOA Solutions", as they provided much detail. I have to disagree about an earlier review on this site - I found the chapters on SOA Security and SOA Governance to be incredibly well-done. I thought that the SOA security chapter was comprehensive in laying out different security blueprints, and I felt that the governance chapter focused on governance in a technology and vendor-neutral way, which is rare to find these days..

If I were to make one complaint, it would be that the book is very large. It is not a quick read, but it is a comprehensive guide to SOA and it is practical. I highly recommend it.

This book clearly explains the concepts and principles of SOA and makes the vital link to Enterprise Architecture. I would highly recommend this book to start with. If you then need more detail on for instance SOA Design Principles or SOA Design Patterns read Thomas Erl's series.
