I knew before I picked up Lucas Jellema's Oracle SOA Suite 11g Handbook it would be a struggle to review it. If you've ever read one of Lucas's huge range of technical blogs, you know he's a prolific technical writer, and if you've ever had the privilege of meeting him you know this comes from his endless energy; I think there's a possibility Lucas is the illegitimate child of the Energizer Bunny. Long story short, I knew when I was asked to review Lucas's book, there was going to be a distinct challenge on how to review everything Lucas will have written.

When reviewing technical books I usually try to think of how I'm going to review the book before I pick it up. There are definitely different approaches to reviewing technical books. Viably you can read a book from front to back and write a summary of each and every chapter. Yet I knew before receiving Lucas's book reviewing every chapter wouldn't be feasible, he will have written to much for me to cover. Couple this with a topic as large and complex as Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) and Oracle's relating products, a comprehensive review would be tiring and as long as the original book defeating the purpose of me writing a review in the first place, I might as well write my own book.

So instead I really wanted to achieve a couple of things in assessing this lofty tomb. Firstly from a professional point of view, how did Lucas's prolific writing style survive the rigours and length of such a lengthy book? For readers looking for a book recommendation this equates to how readable I think the book is.

Oracle SOA Suite 11g Handbook is thick pile of paper with well thought and organized content. This book isn't full blown "explain it all" with 100 pages of installation instructions (they are as extras in internet) and way too much pictures (they are also in internet), but it's more of excellently distilled and well balanced textbook which has good mixture of theory and practical product specific tips. I haven't read from internet extras, which expand cover of book and give step by step details for examples, but even without those this book just shines and shows such commitment that it's rare. I recommend this book for all that are preparing to Oracle SOA certification and I can 100% guarantee that it helps - I've done it with this book, you can do it also.. No other references are needed.

Hi,
The content doesn't look bad, just started.
But here is a roadblock - on page 135 they say
...See Appendix C for details on creating a database connection....

BUT - There is no Appendix C in the book!
I went onto OraclePress online but there is no any downloads for the book.
Anybody has an idea?

i've liked because it shorted on point for SOA certification (but its format isn't good for developers). With focus in architecture and to know only an overview about integration between BPM, SOA, EDA and others platforms recomend it strongly such as start point...

This book really makes an interesting reading. Though I am from Oracle - and people my think this makes me biased - my core technology scope is not SOA. So I approached this book with the eyes of a child, trying to get the most out of it.

So far I like this book (so far because I did not finished reading it - given all the online chapters it could take me until 2011 anyway).It is very well written with a comprehensive story line that not only guides you through the chanpters and use of various Oracle SOA products, but also gives you some history data about from where and when technology joined the Oracle stack. I also like that Lucas, though an Oracle ACE Director, keeps his distance to Oracle and the stack and therefore doesn't spare with his honest opinion.

If there was something negative to say about the book then only that it contains so much information you would want to carry in your head, instead of Lucas in his. However, 800+ pages give you a chance to go en par with Lucas. And if you look at the online content, you almost find a second book for free. In summary - as a non SOA person I like what I see and I am eager to read more. As my personal favorite, I like the ADF integration chapters (which is what I know the best and what I immediately understood was extremely well investigated and covered in the book).
