They need to take this off the market, totally outdated. This does not resemble Oracle's current product(s).

Format: Paperback
This book provides a very good launch pad for embarking on a SOA infrastructure within an Enterprise. While the examples and anecdotes are specific to the Oracle Service Bus product, the concepts are universally applicable to any ESB, and SOA strategy. I particularly liked chapter #7, Asynchronous Messaging, for providing useful patterns in decoupling message consumers from message producers, and chapter 9, Advanced Messaging Topics, describing how to constrain my service consumers with "Service Throttling". With plenty of examples, and step-by-step instructions, this book provides a good tutorial for first-time OSB users, and a reliable reference for more seasoned ALSB/OSB professionals.

Format: Paperback
I wrote on earlier version of this book, "An ESB is in the core of most enterprise SOA implementations and AquaLogic Service Bus (ALSB) is one of the leading ESB. This book covers all the features expected from a modern ESB using realistic use cases and samples that run on ALSB. Once you downloaded the samples you will have a library of solutions that may be applied to your own projects or may be used to explore ALSB features. In addition the book covers the service design, specially the design of composite and orchestrated services deployed on the bus. Although the book is written particularly for ALSB, the topics covered in it will give you very good idea on any modern ESB. I found this book very useful for my projects; applied many of the solutions included in this book. I recommend it for new beginners as well as experienced service developers, SOA architects, and managers overseeing SOA projects."

What I described above is even more relevant with the new version. It is also clear that (ALSB then) now Oracle Service Bus (OSB) evolved to include several new features that alone makes this book a valuable reference. In addition, the content is solidified with field experience, feedback and expanded with wealth of information based on experience of the additional new experts/authors including security, new development environment, and new sections such as custom transport development, using Java and EJBs and more... Again, this book will give you a solid background on ESB in general, but if you have or planning to build on an Oracle SOA platform this book is introducing and describing the core of it, is a must!
