Format: Paperback
Most books from PackT are full of samples to guide developers on how to develop an application. This is usually done when the book is about a programming language or on how to improve the application. But in this case, it takes more than just sample codes to show developers and project managers how to implement improvement of Oracle through SOA.

In this book, developers would not only read about the coding tips on how to improve Oracle but would also encounter a lot of case studies. These case studies are not only based on the fact that they need to improve their Oracle platform. The case studies also discuss the different challenges developers would be facing when improving Oracle and the answer that was implemented through SOA. Developers might even find a familiar situation and use the same solution to that problem.

As the book continues to explain the implementation of Oracle improvement through SOA, more complex samples and case studies are presented. Ultimately, the book is a collection of samples and case studies as it shows the real situations in Oracle improvement and on how to properly tackle the most difficult tasks.

The book also touches a little bit into the future. There are bold predictions on how SOA and Oracle will improve and what developers have to do. This book will not only let you learn about the challenges of today but also anticipate the problems of the future. As already indicated, Oracle and SOA never stays the same. Updates will always be there and would always change the outlook of developers on how to improve the system.

The readers of this book are required to be familiar with the process of Oracle as well as the standard practices of SOA.
