From the Back Cover
Enterprise software drives much of the world's IT systems in critical domains such as healthcare, finance, e-commerce, and government. Web services and cloud computing are two manifestations of the growing sophistication and interconnectedness of business IT processes. Despite its importance, the agreed best practices for building enterprise software are still very much a "work in progress." This text provides a timely review of the principles and practice of enterprise software architecture, including the perspectives of software-oriented architecture (SOA), domain-driven design, and representational state transfer (REST).
It also features:
Both the implementation-oriented perspective of the hands-on developer and the design-oriented perspective of the software architect
Discussion of the support for enterprise software development provided by popular frameworks such as Java Enterprise Edition and Windows Communication Foundation, including illustrative examples
Discussion of trends in computer science research that promise to have a bearing on the hard problems associated with building reliable enterprise applications
Review of basic concepts that any enterprise software developer or architect will need to understand, in programming languages and distributed systems
Intended to bridge the gap between high-level conceptual overviews and in-depth technical tutorials, Enterprise Software Architecture and Design is ideal for students in computer science, information systems, and systems engineering, as well as software development professionals, computer scientists, and software architects.
