The Trivadis Integration Architecture Blueprint

by Daniel Liebhart Guido Schmutz Peter Welkenbach | June 2010 | Enterprise Articles SOA

The Trivadis Integration Architecture Blueprint specifies the building blocks needed for the effective implementation of integration solutions. It ensures consistent quality in the implementation of integration strategies as a result of a simple, tried-and-tested structure, and the use of familiar integration patterns (Hohpe, Wolf 2004).

In this article by Guido Schmutz, co-author of Service-Oriented Architecture: An Integration Blueprint, we will cover:

  • Standards, components, and patterns used
  • Structuring the integration blueprint

The Trivadis Integration Architecture Blueprint: Implementation scenarios

by Daniel Liebhart Guido Schmutz Peter Welkenbach | June 2010 | Enterprise Articles SOA

Having understood the structure of the blueprint covered in the previous article on The Trivadis Integration Architecture Blueprint, this article will use individual scenarios to illustrate how the business pattern can be implemented using the Integration Architecture Blueprint.

This article by Guido Schmutz, co-author of Service-Oriented Architecture: An Integration Blueprint, will:

  • Explain service-oriented integration scenarios
  • Explain how an existing integration solution can be modernized using SOA, and describe a scenario that has already been implemented in practice

Measuring SOA Complexity

by Michael Havey | April 2010 | SOA

This article by Michael Havey, author of SOA Cookbook, presents a formula for scoring SOA processes on complexity. We position complexity analysis as an important step in design oversight and governance. The approach we consider allows the governance team to rate each process as red, yellow, or green and to flag reds for rework. Intuitively, the 'complexity' of a process is the amount of branching or nesting in its graph. Flat form, scores well on complexity because it avoids excessive branching. Naïve processes score poorly. Our scoring method is a variant of McCabe cyclomatic complexity.
