Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) is a powerful and flexible solution architecture for systems integration, resource sharing, and enabling agility in the modern enterprise. SOA promotes an alignment between business and IT and allows disparate domains and information systems to collaborate together as part of a cohesive enterprise. Although SOA possesses a lot of potential for enterprises, there are plenty of things that could go wrong in attempting to apply it to your organization.
Should you deploy Web Services? Do you need an Enterprise Service Bus (ESB)? Should you build your services top-down or bottom-up? What about transaction management? Can you do asynchronous messaging with SOA? Which standards should you adopt? How will you govern your services? How will you secure your services? Which services should you build in the first place? This comprehensive course answers all of these questions and more.
This five day course delves deep into various architectural aspects of SOA. It starts with the Service Oriented Analysis and Design (SOAD). This will help the architects understand how requirements are captured, business processes are modeled and services are identified. The course moves on to explore information management, transaction handling, messaging architecture, testing services, and finally securing them.
The course covers the following key areas of SOA:
- SOA Fundamentals
- SOA Value Proposition
- Services (EAI, WS and REST)
- Enterprise Service Bus (ESB)
- SOA Infrastructure and Tools
- Service and business process design using SOAD
- Governing SOA
- Messaging architecture in SOA
- Error Handling and Transaction Management
- Adapters and Information Management
- Securing Services
- Testing Services
- SOA Best practices
What you will learn
Students will get to actually apply various principles in hands on exercises. This will make the concepts come alive. Throughout the five day course, students will work through 18 real world labs in a hands-on SOA environment.
After taking the course, an architect will gain enough knowledge to begin devising a comprehensive architecture for a new SOA based solution.
