About

We are moving towards a standards-based Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA), where IT infrastructure is continuously adapted to keep up with the pace of business change. Oracle is at the forefront of this vision, with the Oracle SOA Suite providing the most comprehensive, proven, and integrated tool kit for building SOA-based applications.

Developers and Architects using the Oracle SOA Suite, whether working on integration projects, building composite applications, or specializing in implementations of Oracle Applications, need a hands-on guide on how best to harness and apply this technology. This book will guide you on using and applying the Oracle SOA Suite to solve real-world problems, enabling you to quickly learn and master the technology and its applications.

This book is a major update to Oracle SOA Suite Developer's Guide, which covered 10gR3. It is completely updated for Oracle SOA Suite 11gR1, with 40% new material, including detailed coverage of newer components, such as: the Mediator, the new Rules Editor, the Event Delivery Network, Service Data Objects, and the Meta Data Repository. There is also a complete additional chapter on advanced SOA Architecture including message delivery, transaction handling and clustering considerations.

The initial section of the book provides you with a detailed hands-on tutorial to each of the core components that make up the Oracle SOA Suite. Once you are familiar with the various pieces of the SOA Suite and what they do, the next question will typically be:

"What is the best way to use and combine all of these different components to implement a real-world SOA solution?"
Answering this question is the goal of the next section. Using a working example of an online auction site (oBay), it leads you through key SOA design considerations in implementing a robust solution that is designed for change.

The final section addresses non-functional considerations and covers the packaging, deployment, and testing of SOA applications. It then details how to secure and administer SOA applications.

After graduating from the University of Bristol with a degree in Mathematics and Computer Science he worked first for a software house, IPL, in Bath, England, before joining the travel reservations system Galileo as a development team lead. Galileo gave him the opportunity to work in Colorado and Illinois where he developed a love for the Rockies and Chicago style deep pan pizza.

Since joining Oracle in 1998 he has worked in sales consulting and support. He currently works as a sales consultant helping customers across North America realize the benefits of standards based integration and SOA. Whilst at Oracle he has co-authored the Oracle SOA Suite 10g Developers Guide and the Oracle SOA Suite 11g R1 Developers Guide.

Antony lives in Colorado with his wife and four children who make sure that he is gainfully employed playing games, watching movies, and acting as an auxiliary taxi service. Antony is a slow but steady runner and can often be seen jogging up and down the trails in the shadow of the Rocky Mountains…

With over 20 years experience in building enterprise scale distributed systems, Matt first became involved with SOA shortly after the initial submission of SOAP 1.1 to the W3C in 2000, and has worked with some of the early adopters of BPEL since its initial release in 2002. Since then, he has been engaged in some of the earliest SOA-based implementations across EMEA and APAC.

Prior to Rubicon Red Matt held various senior roles within Oracle, most recently as Director of Product Management for Oracle Fusion Middleware in APAC, where he was responsible for working with organizations to educate and enable them in realizing the full business benefits of SOA in solving complex business problems.

As a recognized authority on SOA, Matt is a regular speaker and instructor at private and public events. He also enjoys writing and publishes his own blog (http://blog.rubiconred.com). Matt holds a B.Sc. (Eng) in Computer Science from Imperial College, University of London.

He has worked on Oracle SOA Suite Developer's Guide, Packt Publishing and Oracle SOA Suite 11g R1 Developer's Guide, Packt Publishing.
