The book starts by introducing key SOA concepts, and emerging standards such as Service Component Architecture (SCA), that are key to understanding Oracle SOA Suite 11g. The remainder of the book, written in the form of a tutorial, will quickly guide new and experienced developers through the complete breadth of features and components offered by Oracle SOA Suite 11g.

Chapter instructions are written at three levels of complexity: detailed step by step instructions for the newbie, high level functional and design notes for those who want the challenge of building without the details, and a quick-build list of objects for experienced users who just want to build the application.
