This article discusses the combination of three ideas, virtualization, service-orientation, and grid computing into a single concept and computing platform concept, "virtual service-oriented grids." In addition to history and definitions, the article addresses an approach, with an example, to analyzing and implementing this technology.
This article introduces and discusses three technologies, virtualization, service orientation, and grid computing, and then shows how they are combining to create new design and deployment options - "Virtual Service Oriented Grids." The business case for using this emergent model is also discussed.
Alex Maclinovsky explains why his vision of Governance differs from those prevailing in the industry. Based on his precise understanding of what a SOA platform should do, he defines a unified view of SOA Governance which he claims "has the potential to take the imperfect SOA platforms and implementations ... and transform them into true Service Oriented Architectures..."
Applied SOA is a new book on Service Oriented Architecture written by 4 SOA practitioners that aims at making you successful with your SOA implementation. 3
In this second part of their article, the authors explore the architecture of Dynamic Business Applications and how it impacts implementation productivity. 2
It is easy to think that virtualization applies only to servers. In reality the recent resurgence of the concept is also being applied to networking, storage, and application infrastructure. 5
In this article, Adrien Louis and Marc Dutoo discuss the differences and relative merits of using orchestration vs. routing in a typical ESB setup, and discuss various implementation options.
Jeremy Deane takes a look at writing a Restful ESB. He explains how commercial ESB's were considered and NetKernel was ultimately used to provide the implementation.
BEA has released a preview of SCA support in WebLogic 10.3 based on Fabric3. We spoke with Jim Marino (BEA) and Meeraj(VocaLink) about SOA, approaches to adopt SCA and key benefits.
"Can I call you back about that?" Building Asynchronous Services using Service Component Architecture
Mike Edwards, one of the authors of the SCA series of specifications, discusses how to write asynchronous services with the Service Component Architecture. 2
In this article, Boris Lublinsky explains the design and implementation of a service registry that decouples service consumers and providers in a .NET-based SOA environment. 3
After 8+ years of intense research, the promises of BPM have not materialized. We explore here a new architecture blueprint for BPMSs based on assemblies and orchestrations. 22
