Comments about oreilly Applied SOA Patterns on the Oracle Platform:

Oracle Applied SOA Patterns on Oracle Platforms by Sergey Popov covers all the rudiments required by the SOA Architects and Developers to architect and develop system integration solutions using Oracle SOA and OSB Stack.

The book provides a synopsis of the various industry practices for integration and methodologies used for these integrations. Illustrates to design and develop design patterns using Oracle SOA provides and these best practices can be beneficial in completing systems integration projects.

Each and every chapter of this book is written with the intent to:

Find the root cause of the problem and analyze it in strong relevance to the SOA design principles.
Speculate the decomposition of the problem into smaller, more manageable parts that could be implemented as separate atomic components or services.
Identify the ways of standardizing the decomposed components/services, focusing on the improvement of their reuse.
Propose various vendor-neutral solutions (not exactly Oracle) based on the identified components/services and, again, diligently analyze them using the SOA design principles, focusing on the desired SOA characteristics.
Present the most optimal solution based on an Oracle platform and compare it to other alternatives proposed during the analysis phase. Since we are vendor-neutral and focus primarily on the preferred solution's characteristics, we cannot guarantee that Oracle realization will always win, but it will be the closest bet for most of the discussed use cases.
The book starts with the SOA Ecosystem, illustrating various principals, patterns and frameworks, followed by an introduction to Oracle Fusion. Chapter three, discuses building the Enterprise Business Flows illustrating the significant concepts like the Service Inventory, Detailed Analysis Orchestration patterns. Chapter Five, discusses Service Repository concepts such as Taxonomy and Discoverability of services. Chapter Six, details the concepts on Adapters used in the SOA SCA. Security is discussed in detail in Chapter Seven. Exception handling patterns have been discussed in detail in chapter Eight. The books also covers Complex Event Processing and some very essential Design Patterns.

I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn the SOA Design Patterns.

    Comments about oreilly Applied SOA Patterns on the Oracle Platform:

    This book is highly recommended for architects and SOA Lead developers. Sergey and his team has done a commendable job in packing his experiences in orderly fashion. Chapter 1-3 refresh you with SOA principles, patterns & framework. If you are into oracle fusion then Chapter-2 provides you enough information on various oracle products, that complements the previous chapter. I found it useful where it explains how oracle product support various standards like WS-ReliableMessaging, WS-Addressing etc and its use in pattern implementation. Chapter-3 helps in setting the realistic expectation of oracle soa suite. This will also help the Lead developers to guide and mentor their team to optimally use and achieve right balance. Information about security layers, SOA Vulnerabilities and design rules mitigating risk are covered in depth. Overall a good book with many practical insight.
