About

Service Oriented Architecture provides a way for applications to work together over the Internet. Usually, SOA applications are exposed through web services.

Web services have been around for a while, but complex adoption processes and poor standardization hampered their use at first. However, with the adoption of new, simpler protocols such as REST, and major companies supporting SOA, the time is now right to adopt these standards.

This book will show you how to build SOA, web services-based applications using Java. You will find out when SOA is the best choice for your application, how to design a sound architecture, and then implement your design using Java.

The book covers the important web services protocols: XML-over-HTTP, REST, and SOAP. You will learn how to develop web services at all levels of complexity and for all kinds of business situations.

Features
  • Build effective SOA applications with Java Web Services
  • Quick reference guide with best-practice design examples
  • Understand SOA concepts from core with examples
  • Design scalable inter-enterprise communication
