A brief background on my credentials - I'm with Interway , a company that provides software products to companies to help with their SOA needs (among other things).

Getting Started With Oracle SOA Suite 11g R1 - A Hands-On Tutorial ([...]) is about SOA Suite 11gR1 and all it's components.

In July 2009 Oracle has announced release of new product line Oracle Fusion Middleware 11gR1. Main SOA oriented software of this release is Oracle SOA Suite. In this book, there are all components of Oracle SOA Suite 11.1.1.2.0 release conceptually explained.

Authors of publication were part of Oracle SOA Suite 11g design team and took part also in development team. They brought interesting perspective to Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) in conjunction with Service Composite Architecture (SCA). SCA as technology and vendor neutral standard model has to conform to SOA principles and paradigms.

Book gives to reader best value if reader has experienced with concepts used in SOA Suite 10g. While reading this book, reader will get familiar with new concepts and possibilities of usage SOA Suite 11g which is using SCA model.

Release 11g has gone through many conceptual changes comparing to product line 10g. As application server is in use WebLogic and not OC4J, which was used in 10g. Due to this fact there is lack of description about WebLogic itself. WebLogic architecture and installation is explained only as part of installation of SOA Suite. The user, which is trying to install and use SOA suite deployed in WebLogic, has not enough information for usage and WebLogic configuration. On the other hand, there is well-detailed described SCA model. In beginning of the book there is mentioned motivation for SCA and SOA. How SCA is conforming to SOA principles.

The book is based on very old version of SOA suite. The hands on tutorials are not at all relevent. I couldn't complete any tutorials because many items this book refers to- does not exist in new version of SOA anymore. If you are planning to buy this book for hands on tutorials, then dont waste your money.

With this edited tutorial covering all the parts of SOA Suite 11g (from BPEL, via Mediator, Rules, as well as Human Workflow - all the way to B2B and Oracle's Service Bus) it's by far the best way to get a head start into the fundamentals of the platform at unprecedented breath.

Heidi and her team have done a tremendous job to structure the labs and hands-on exercises in a didactic, explanatory way - with solutions all the way through. This way the book serves not just as a tutorial, but also as a reference bible when it comes to implementation of specific features and concepts.

Format: Paperback
An excellent book to learn Oracle SOA Suite 11g, including the latest version of the products. The book walks you through creating composite applications covering BPEL, Mediator, BAM, EM, WF and Rules components via building non-trivial samples in a very intuitive way by clearly defined steps - for this alone, this books deserves 5 stars! However it goes beyond, it also includes topics such as Web Services, JMS, Database, LDAP Adapters, Error Handling, Event Networks, and Unit Testing in a way to support SOA concepts and SOA Suite 11g. By the time you finished the book, completed the samples/tutorials, you are at a pretty good level of understanding of SOA and SOA Suite and hands on experience to take to next level... I highly recommend this book to both 10g experienced (a lot of new features and updates in 11g!) and new beginners.

Although this book provides an excellent step-by-step guide to using the fundamental features of Oracle SOA Suite 11gR1, it doesn't go into nearly enough detail for an experienced middle-ware developer like me. The chapter on JMS is a good case in point. It only covers how to publish a single XML message to a single JMS queue. It says nothing about delivering to multiple queues based on message content, or mention anything about using JMS Headers or User Properties, or handling any other type of payload apart from XML.

At the end of the day, although I realize that the subject matter is too vast to cover in-depth for each potential topic, I still felt disappointed by this book.

This is an excellent book for people wanting to learn SOA Suite 11g.
The composite application created during the tutorial is non-trivial and includes Web Services, BPEL, Business Rules, JMS, Database Adapters, BAM, Error Handling, Eventing, Unit Testing and more.
The book provides everything you need to learn SOA Suite 11g, clearly written and at a nice pace.
I highly recommend it.

If you believe, as I do, that an example is worth ten thousand words, and you are interested in getting a working knowledge of Oracle SOA Suite, then this book is for you.

The examples are well thought through: they are simple, but relevant. Step by step, you build an order management application.

In other books the examples are so simple (Hello world, etc) that it is difficult to grasp the usefulness of the technology you are trying to learn. Not in this case: as each chapter deals with a new feature of SOA, you add a new feature to the sample application that makes it more realistic and closer to what a real SOA application must look like.

The book includes all the supporting files necessary to follow the application along and it is clear that the authors have spent a great deal of time making sure that readers can follow the examples.

I have no hesitation in giving this book five stars.
