This book is also not a "cookbook" - it does not offer easy answers to these tough problems. Instead it walks you through the thought process so you can learn how to come up with the right answers yourself.
I am actively using this book to help my customers get started with SOA and to help them avoid common design pitfalls. My favorite chapter is Chapter 9: Using Services to Build Enterprise Solutions. The distinction between today's monolothic applications and tomorrow's composite applications requires a paradigm shift that the authors express well.
Finally, I especially liked the practical approach, practical steps and practical advice continually peppered throughout the entire book.
I thought that Part 1 of the book is good for those new to SOA, and I found that the rest of the book provides great guidance and detail for more seasoned architects. I liked the chapters on "Using Services to Build Enterprise Solutions" and "Designing and Using Integration in SOA Solutions", as they provided much detail. I have to disagree about an earlier review on this site - I found the chapters on SOA Security and SOA Governance to be incredibly well-done. I thought that the SOA security chapter was comprehensive in laying out different security blueprints, and I felt that the governance chapter focused on governance in a technology and vendor-neutral way, which is rare to find these days..
If I were to make one complaint, it would be that the book is very large. It is not a quick read, but it is a comprehensive guide to SOA and it is practical. I highly recommend it.
This book is different. It provides details. It focuses on architecture, design, and provides in-depth guidance for a wide variety of problem areas that we all encounter when we build SOA implementations. The book is a long one, but it is worth the read.
For those planning to introduce SOA in their organization - or those who just want to know more on the topic- this book is definitely a must have!
