SOA with Java: Realizing Service-Orientation with Java Technologies
by Thomas Erl,
Chapter 1: Introduction (TOC)
This chapter establishes the scope and structure of the book by providing an overview of the primary topic areas along with chapter descriptions and information regarding conventions and supplemental resources.
Chapter 2: Case Study Examples (TOC)
The chapters in this book contain numerous case study examples, all of which relate back to the case study background information established in this chapter.
Part I: Fundamentals
The four chapters in this part cover introductory topics related to SOA, service-orientation, Web-based services technology, and Java. Note that these chapters do not contain case study content.
- Chapter 3: Fundamental SOA Concepts
- Chapter 4: Basic Java Distributed Technologies
- Chapter 5: Web-Based Service Technologies
- Chapter 6: Building Web-Based Services with Java
Chapter 3: Fundamental SOA Concepts (TOC)
This chapter provides an overview of key terms and concepts associated with SOA, service-orientation, and service-oriented computing.
Chapter 4: Basic Java Distributed Technologies (TOC)
With an emphasis on Java EE, this chapter introduces Java technologies and APIs relevant to this book. Open-source and commercial Java vendor platforms are further referenced.
Chapter 5: Web-Based Service Technologies (TOC)
This chapter provides a concise overview of the industry standards and conventions that form the basis for SOAP-based Web services and REST services. A series of examples is provided for each service implementation medium.
Chapter 6: Building Web-Based Services with Java (TOC)
This chapter focuses on the JAX-WS standard for SOAP-based Web services and the JAX-RS standard for REST services, and provides numerous examples that demonstrate basic design and implementation.
Part II: Services
This part of the book contains a set of chapters that highlight key Java design considerations introduced by service-orientation principles, and further explores their application to the creation of Java-based utility and entity services.
- Chapter 7: Service-Orientation Principles with Java Web-Based Services
- Chapter 8: Utility Services with Java
- Chapter 9: Entity Services with Java
Chapter 7: Service-Orientation Principles with Java Web-Based Services (TOC)
This chapter documents each of the eight service-orientation design principles as they affect and relate to the use of Java-based technology for both SOAP-based Web services and REST services.
Chapter 8: Utility Services with Java (TOC)
The unique design considerations that come with building utility services with Java are addressed in a series of sections that explore architecture, design, and implementation, further supported by a number of examples.
Chapter 9: Entity Services with Java (TOC)
This chapter discusses the development of entity services with Java with an emphasis on service contract and message standardization, data access, and processing.
Part III: Service Composition and Infrastructure
The final set of chapters build upon Parts I and II to tackle the design and implementation of entire Java-based service-oriented solutions. Topics covered range from service composition to ESB-related infrastructure considerations.
- Chapter 10: Task Services with Java
- Chapter 11: Service Composition with Java
- Chapter 12: ESB as SOA Infrastructure
Chapter 10: Task Services with Java (TOC)
This chapter discusses the characteristics, design, and implementation considerations of building task services with Java and further addresses preliminary service composition issues in preparation for Chapter 11.
Chapter 11: Service Composition with Java (TOC)
This chapter covers a spectrum of topics that pertain to and further expand upon many of the areas already covered in preceding chapters to focus on the design, implementation, and performance of services aggregated into Java-based service compositions.
Chapter 12: ESB as SOA Infrastructure (TOC)
This chapter highlights the use of ESB-based middleware and infrastructure in relation to service-oriented solution and service composition architecture and implementation.
Part IV: Appendices
- Appendix A: Case Study Conclusion
- Appendix B: Service-Orientation Principles Reference
- Appendix C: SOA Design Patterns Reference
- Appendix D: The Annotated SOA Manifesto
Appendix A: Case Study Conclusion (TOC)
This appendix provides a conclusion of the case study storylines first established in Chapter 2.
Appendix B: Service-Orientation Principles Reference (TOC)
This appendix provides the profile tables (originally from SOA Principles of Service Design) for the service-orientation design principles referenced in this book.
Appendix C: SOA Design Patterns Reference (TOC)
This appendix provides the profile tables from the design patterns documented in the books SOA Design Patterns and SOA with REST: Principles, Patterns & Constraints for Building Enterprise Solutions with REST.
Appendix D: The Annotated SOA Manifesto (TOC)
This appendix provides the annotated version of the SOA Manifesto declaration, which is also published at www.soa-manifesto.com.
