SOA with Java Business Integration (part 1)

by Binildas A. Christudas | January 2009 | Java Open Source

Integration has been an area for specialists for years, since no standards exist across vendor products. This increases the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) to implement and maintain any integration solution. Even though integration is a necessary evil, CIOs and IT managers postpone decisions and actions, and sometimes go for ad-hoc or temporary solutions. Any such activity will complicate the already confused stove pipes and it is the need of the hour to have standardization. Here we are going to inspect the need of another standard for business integration, and also look into the details of what this standard is all about.

In this article by Binildas C. A, we will look at:

  • Service oriented architecture in the context of integration
  • Relationship between web services and SOA
  • Service oriented integration
  • J2EE, JCA, and JBI—how they relate
  • Introduction to JBI
  • JBI Nomenclature—main components in JBI

SOAP and PHP 5

by Shu-Wai Chow | October 2007 | AJAX MySQL Open Source PHP Web Development

Creating your own search engine in the past would require a massive amount of hardware resources, and complex search and spidering algorithms. Lucky for us, search engines like Google, Microsoft MSN, and Yahoo! have already done this for us. Even luckier for us, these sites have released web services for us to query their data centers and retrieve results. Our main advantage is that all three offer web APIs, so we can leverage the data of all three engines. Instead of just one set of results from one search engine, our application will query each engine and present the results to the user on one page. No longer will users have to visit these sites individually to search each engine.

In this article, we will cover one of the important elements for building a search engine, SOAP, and we will see how PHP 5 interacts with it.
