Software architects are often called upon to create an organization's technology strategy. But what constitutes a good technology strategy? And what tools and patterns can you use to create one that's meaningful, impactful, executable, and operational? This book explains what the world's top strategy firms can teach you about the intersection of strategic analysis and communication to deliver critical architectural decisions. Author Eben Hewitt, Chief Architect and VP of Product Development at Sabre, outlines a framework, process, and set of 30 patterns that will help you create a powerful technology strategy for your organization. You'll learn what strategy is and explore the accepted tools and patterns for creating one, including SWOT, Porter's Five Forces, PESTEL, Futures Funnels, and radars. By the end of the book, you'll be able to apply these tested patterns to represent your technology strategy in a way that will help you succeed.
Java SOA Cookbook offers practical solutions and advice to programmers charged with implementing a service-oriented architecture (SOA) in their organization. Instead of providing another conceptual, high-level view of SOA, this cookbook shows you how to make SOA work. It's full of Java and XML code you can insert directly into your applications and recipes you can apply right away. The book focuses primarily on the use of free and open source Java Web Services technologies -- including Java SE 6 and Java EE 5 tools -- but you'll find tips for using commercially available tools as well. Java SOA Cookbook will help you: * Construct XML vocabularies and data models appropriate to SOA applications * Build real-world web services using the latest Java standards, including JAX-WS 2.1 and JAX-RS 1.0 for RESTful web services * Integrate applications from popular service providers using SOAP, POX, and Atom * Create service orchestrations with complete coverage of the WS-BPEL (Business Process Execution Language) 2.0 standard * Improve the reliability of SOAP-based services with specifications such as WS-Reliable Messaging * Deal with governance, interoperability, and quality-of-service issues The recipes in Java SOA Cookbook will equip you with the knowledge you need to approach SOA as an integration challenge, not an obstacle.
