The Practitioner’s Guide to Implementing SOA with Java EE Technologies


This book brings together all the practical insight you need to successfully architect enterprise solutions and implement them using SOA and Java EE technologies. Writing for senior IT developers, strategists, and enterprise architects, the authors cover everything from concepts to implementation, requirements to tools. 


The authors first review the Java EE platform’s essential elements in the context of SOA and web services deployment, and demonstrate how Java EE has evolved into the world’s best open source solution for enterprise SOA. After discussing standards such as SOAP, WSDL, and UDDI, they walk through implementing each key aspect of SOA with Java EE. Step by step, you’ll learn how to integrate service-oriented web and business components of Java EE technologies with the help of process-oriented standards such as BPEL/CDL into a coherent, tiered enterprise architecture that can deliver a full spectrum of business services.


Implementing SOA Using Java™ EE concludes with a section-length case study that walks through analyzing a company’s requirements, creating an effective SOA architecture, and building a concise proof-of-concept prototype with NetBeans IDE. Coverage includes

•  Using Java EE technologies to simplify SOA implementation

•  Mastering messaging, service descriptions, registries, orchestration, choreography, and other essential SOA concepts

•  Building an advanced web services infrastructure for implementing SOA

•  Using Java Persistence API to provide for persistence

•  Getting started with Java Business Integration (JBI), the new open specification for delivering SOA

•  Implementing SOA at the web and business tiers

•  Developing, configuring, and deploying SOA systems with NetBeans IDE

•  Constructing SOA systems with NetBeans SOA Pack

3.0 out of 5 stars Very basic summary of SOA implementation May 13, 2010
This book is a good, but VERY BRIEF summary of SOA and surrounding topics. The price tag on this book had me thinking this might be a solid book for implementing SOA using J2EE. The table of contents looks great, but each section is so brief it is quickly a disappointment. Spend your dollars elsewhere.

2.0 out of 5 stars Just a summary of Java EE August 31, 2010
By jayanth
As other reviewers have pointed out, the title of the book is very deceptive. Nice work, Marketing! This book is certainly NOT about implementing SOA using Java EE. Anybody interested in that particular topic, please look elsewhere.

The one area that this book shines though is in being a brief and mostly accurate summary of Java EE. If you are feeling a bit rusty about Java EE and want to get to speed quickly, this book can be a nice afternoon read. I am giving the book 2 stars for the nice and quick summary of Java EE.

1.0 out of 5 stars This is not helpful book June 10, 2010
The book made me very disappointment because it only has some summary of Java technologies, does not have useful information about how to implementing SOA using Java EE. It also has some repeating text, and unnecessary RPC history descriptuions. Some text of the book is almost same as Java documents, and looks like the dictionary of Java technologies, there is no useful information. Do not spend your money and time on this book if you need to know how to implement SOA using Java EE.

1.0 out of 5 stars History lesson February 10, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is not a "how to" to teach readers the Java EE concepts. Rather it is a history of the author's knowledge of the subject.

B.V. Kumar, Prakash Narajyan and Tony Ng's IMPLEMENTING SOA USING JAVA EE is for any library offering Java programmers keys to success, and covers SOA development ranging from messaging and registries to using Java persistence API and implementing SOA at all web and business processes. The result is an outstanding read perfect for any programming collection.
