What You Will Learn

  • Bring reliability to web service integrations
  • Create code that automatically compensates for failure
  • Manage the deployment of complex software systems
  • Create software that can scale horizontally as well as vertically

In Detail

Web service-based systems are designed using Remote Procedure Call (RPC) techniques. This technique is effective; however, this method creates problems with scalability and reusability as fault tolerance is inherently hindered by the RPC principles. This book helps you to overcome this problem by introducing you to the principles of messaging and SOA to build scalable and reliable systems, that are easy to extend and maintain.

"Learning NServiceBus" is your essential guide to becoming a messaging guru. The book details the process of building a software system based on the SOA principles. From sending a simple message to publishing events, this book covers everything you need to know to understand and implement an SOA-based message driven systems.

"Learning NServiceBus" will teach you how to use publish/subscribe to create an Serivce Oriented Architecture. We will then look how to manage and extend that architecture. Through the course of the book, you will build reliable systems which will automatically compensate for failures. You will also learn to build complex yet testable business processes which will make batch processes seem outdated. By the end of the book, you will realize that SOA is much more than just web services.
