Paul Mooney attempts to clear up some of the misunderstandings surrounding SOA considering the fact that many implementations are labeled as “SOA” but are not. He does that by describing an SOA journey from establishing a route (characteristics, goals, benefits), planning it (service inventory), making it (service design) and arriving at the destination (measuring success, governance).
Cesare Pautasso presents a pattern-based design methodology used to build RESTful services, which is accompanied by an example used to draw a number of patterns: Uniform Contract, Entity Endpoint, Content Negotiation, Endpoint Redirection, Idempotent Capability. Pautasso also mentions a couple of anti-patterns: tunneling everything through HTTP/GET and HTTP/POST.
Communication is everywhere. The Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) can be used to design and develop service-oriented distributed solutions. This presentation shows the basics of WCF and how to solve common problems in distributed systems. Christian Weyer provides a practical approach to realizing distributed solutions with WCF - beyond the hype and 'Hello World'.
