Paul Fremantle discusses the evolution of EAI, comparing the latest approaches, suggesting using Async Messaging, EDA, APIs, and doing high volumes, and underlining that evolution is not monotonic.
Jason Macy explains what are the security threats targeting SOA implementations, the basic requirements for security testing and SOA gateway, attack examples and countermeasures to protect against SQL Injection, DoS, XSD Mutation, and Identity type of attacks.
Stefan Tilkov makes a case for using REST in an enterprise SOA solution showing how to implement tricky features like encapsulation, transactions, stateful communication, reliable messaging, notifications, and security. He also offers advice on how to convince the management to use REST and how to implement it at the enterprise level, including mixing it with WS* when mandatory.
Arjen Poutsma introduces Spring-WS, and shows what’s new in Spring-WS 2.0 using demos: an improved @Endpoint model, Spring 3 and Java 5++ support, full streaming, and integration test support.
Stefan Tilkov discusses SOA basic concepts by making a number of claims, such as “Application architecture is irrelevant for your SOA” or “An ESB should not be at the core of your SOA”, followed by explanations and related recommendations.
In this presentation from QCon London 2009, Steve Vinoski discusses what RPC means, the origin and history of RPC, RFC 707, the origins of Distributed Computing Environment (DCE), the growth of the Internet, standardization, distributed objects, CORBA, DCOM, Java, SOAP, WS-*, the fundamental flaws in RPC, REST properties and constraints, REST vs RPC philosophy, Erlang reliability and concurrency.
In this presentation, recorded at QCon, WSO2's CEO and WSDL co-inventor Sanjiva Weerawarana tries to address some of the myths and lies surrounding the REST-vs.-WS-* debate. He argues that while both camps claim how "easy" it is to build distributed business applications using their favorite technological approach, building distributed applications simply remains a hard problem.
In this presentation filmed during QCon London 2008, Christian Weyer, co-founder of thinktecture, explains how to create distributed systems using SOAP or REST on top of Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) or Windows Workflow Foundation (WWF).
In one of the most entertaining presentations on the topic ever, Dr. Jim Webber debunks myths about the mainstream ESB concept and explains how a lightweight approach can yield real benefits without giving in to vendor pressure. Jim claims that an ESB often ends up being just a thin veneer on an existing mess, and how an approach that doesn't put intelligence into the network is superior.
In this presentation, Scott Davis provides a pragmatic, down-to-earth introduction to Web services as used in the real world by public sites, including SOAP-based, REST and POX-style examples. While the buzzword density leaves nothing to be desired, the presentation contains a very accessible introduction to the core Web services standards.
