From the Inside Flap

As hot as SOA is today, many business and technology professionals still find it challenging to join together their various methodologies and objectives. What directions should guide you in identifying new services, analyzing your technological capabilities, and proposing a superior architecture solution? And, how should you model an analysis proposition for a small-scale project or a large enterprise initiative?

Author Michael Bell's previous book, Service-Oriented Modeling: Service Analysis, Design, and Architecture, introduced Service-Oriented Modeling Framework (SOMF) software development methodology and simple SOA Modeling patterns designed to overcome the communication barriers between business and IT professionals.

Now, Bell continues the conversation with SOA Modeling Patterns for Service-Oriented Discovery and Analysis. The patterns provided here offer road-tested analysis, discovery processes, and design solutions to assist you in devising an Analysis Proposition, a modeling artifact that offers a remedy to business or technological concerns.

Reflecting the author's years of SOA knowledge and experience, this authoritative guide for service-oriented projects offers straightforward, focused answers to the challenging questions that come up during the development process to equip you to:

  • Analyze the problem domain

  • Discover services

  • Analyze services for construction and production

  • Assess service feasibility for deployment

  • Employ the SOA modeling language during the service identification and examination process

  • Identify services and analyze proposed business and technological solutions

  • Utilize the SOA modeling patterns and anti-patterns for service discovery and analysis

An essential business and technology service-oriented modeling road map for you—whether you are a manager, architect, modeler, analyst, or a developer—SOA Modeling Patterns for Service-Oriented Discovery and Analysis empowers your organization with the necessary tools and terminology to develop services that deliver the benefits of SOA. This guide also offers implementation and design best practices for Enterprise 2.0. This is the next SOA generation that has picked up steam recently. The introduced modeling language will assist you with developing a powerful business and technological strategy for SOA Implementations, Virtual Modeling Ventures, and future Cloud Computing Projects.

From the Back Cover

The answers and tools you need for a sound service-oriented architecture in your organization

"There is so much hype and distortion in the technology community regarding SOA, what it is and how it will revolutionize technology in organizations. As a business leader, I prefer to understand exactly what the value proposition of a given technology is and how it can be used to benefit my customers. This book gives the reader practical examples on how to leverage SOA and is particularly powerful and insightful since it is written by someone who actually performs what he writes about."
—Lisa N. Wolford, President & CEO, CSSS.NET

"Michael Bell is well qualified to offer the first practical guide to achieve the organizational benefits of SOA. He provides the missing link between architecture and results that has eluded many in the industry for years. By understanding the business motivations within an organization first and applying a transparent process of service discovery and analysis, the real benefits of service-orientation can be realized."
—Eric Pulier, founder & Chairman, SOA Software, Inc., founder & CEO, ServiceMesh, Inc.

"Michael Bell's new book, SOA Modeling Patterns for Service-Oriented Discovery and Analysis, continues to advance the nascent discipline of SOA modeling that was established in his groundbreaking first book, Service-Oriented Modeling. SOA Modeling Patterns builds on his previous work by adding contextual and structural modeling concepts, and extending the modeling framework from services modeling to enterprise SOA solution modeling. This is a must-read for all SOA practitioners!"
—Eric A. Marks, President & CEO, AgilePath Corporation

"SOA Modeling Patterns for Service-Oriented Discovery and Analysis is a profound and professional guide for ascertaining and inspecting services for a project or cross organizational initiative. This book is a fundamental milestone in the era of modern software modeling for SOA, virtual landscapes, and cloud computing, because it provides an insightful 'how to' methodology to promote software reuse, consolidation, loose coupling, and nimbleness."
—Max Yankelevich, Chief Architect, Freedom OSS—Practical Cloud and Open Source Solutions for the Enterprise

"This book is a must-read for business and technical SOA practitioners. It is well crafted, easy to understand, and most important, underscores the necessity to employ an SOA modeling language when pursuing the service-oriented discovery and analysis discipline. By leveraging these offered SOA best practices, SOA professionals would be able to shorten the time-to-market, and introduce effective and durable services for the organization."
—Dr. Bob Chen, Chief Architect, Bunge Global Agribusiness

"SOA Modeling Patterns provides a holistic pattern framework that can be applied incrementally and iteratively. It introduces the concept of virtual modeling of services which is timely given the rapid spread of virtualization and with cloud computing on the horizon. I strongly recommend SOA Modeling Patterns for Service-Oriented Discovery and Analysis to anyone looking for a practical way to introduce SOA to their organization."
—Donald Mahaya, Enterprise Architect, Donald Mahaya, Inc.

"Mr. Bell has written a clear, articulate guide to service-oriented discovery and analysis. He provides a road map of discovery and analysis patterns, and then uses them to expertly guide the reader through discovery, categorization, contextual analysis, and structural analysis. This book belongs in every IT professional's library."
—Don Buckley, Enterprise Architect, Innovative Data Solutions, Inc.

Format: Hardcover
I heard about this book when i was searching for software development material for my company; my background is pretty diverse since i worked for a banking institute as a programmer and then i held a position as a product developer for a credit card business division. then i did application architecture and very recently i moved to our enterprise archtitecture group. Because of my diversified background i must say that this book adds a enormous value to my work. In the beginning i thought that these are patterns in the traditional way. I thought that these are design pattens only. But i was surprised that these are not only design or what the author calls them modeling patterns, these are also process patterns. It may sound strange but this is awesome. I found it very easy to understand and implement. another issue that i run against was the way that a service is presented - very universal,; so a service can be any software component. very interesting. i was also searching for a tool to implement the language that is in the last eight chapters - this is the structural and contextual modeling of the service. I was surprised to find that the enterprise architect product - the next version probably is going to have a good coverage of the language. Excellent material in my opinion;- you really do not need to know any particular language such as java or whatever;- you just need to use the simple notation to link services or aggregated them. see this link: [...] - in this link i found some pdf documents and i discovered that this book can be used for a bunch of softwar projects including development of regular applications or SOA or even clouds. ----- very impressive and useful book -----

In my world Michael Bell sets the baseline for how to define and create excellent services that support business goals. His approach allows one to partner with great business people and not just seek some level of business alignment. A masterful work that builds on his tried and true approaches from previous books relating to defining, discovery and designing good services. Again, he raises the bar on practical service modeling. Full of many excellent patterns related to creating excellent conceptual services, service oriented analysis and discovery. Read this book and plant it into your head ... it is the future. This book is full of practical ideas that can be utilized no matter what approach you use to implement services. Another "beyond outstanding" book in my opinion and a must have for "how" does one provide the business with competitive and efficient services whether you are working in a business role, government role, involved with traditional internal services or cloud services. Good business people understand the value of good business services. If you are looking for practical advice for how to define, discover and do service analysis and modeling, you will not find better advice anywhere. Thought leadership on a global level that is matched by no other.

9 of 10 people found the following review helpful By James P. Clark on March 26, 2010
Format: Hardcover
The service-oriented modeling patterns book conveys a simple message: an overarching modeling approach for application-level and enterprise-level modeling that should be implemented during the service discovery and analysis phase of a project. The book also introduces many patterns and anti-patterns that can help propose solutions to challenges that are typical in today's architecture environment, early in the software development phase.

The driving approach for modeling services in the inception phase (during service identification and inspection) are four major methods of implementation, recommended when pursuing contextual and structural analysis and modeling:
* Service Generalization
* Service Specifications
* Service Expansion
* Service Contraction

This serious discussion about service discovery and analysis is a milestone in the software modeling space and is highly recommended for all business and IT professionals.

Format: Hardcover
The Service-Oriented Modeling Patterns (SOMP) represented in this book offer hands on approach to SOA and Cloud Computing modeling and to enterprise architecture modeling as well. Not only developers can use these patterns, architects and project managers are also the practitioners that should be utilize this methodology to design an application or an enterprise solution.

I strongly recommend the Contextual and Structural modeling and analysis approach. These patterns are state-of-the-art guidelines for software development, design and architecture. Consider these features of the service-oriented modeling framework features:

A. Contextual Modeling: Generalization, Expansion, Specification, and Contraction
B. Structural Modeling: Generalization, Expansion, Specification, and Contraction
