We are at a stage in the evolution of service-oriented computing where modern service technology innovation is building upon mature service platforms at the same time that proven delivery techniques and design patterns are building upon the established service-orientation design paradigm. These developments have made it possible to build service-oriented solutions of unprecedented sophistication and to take the realization of service-orientation to new levels. At the same time, there are new risks, complexities, and pitfalls that need to be understood in order to make the most of what the current SOA industry has to offer. This new book explains Next Generation SOA in plain English and is suitable for any IT professional interested in learning about where modern-day SOA is at today and where it is heading.
