WA1571 Service Oriented Architecture for Architects (Oracle Edition)

Displaying courses for United States [Change]


Architectural aspects of SOA, starting with SOAD. How requirements are captured, business processes are modeled and services are identified. Explore information management, transaction handling, messaging architecture, testing services, and security.


Should you deploy Web Services? Do you need an Enterprise Service Bus (ESB)? Should you build your services top-down or bottom-up? What about transaction management? Can you do asynchronous messaging with SOA? Which standards should you adopt? How will you govern your services? How will you secure your services? Which services should you build in the first place? This comprehensive course answers all of these questions and more.


Enterprise Architects, Solution Architects, Business Architects, Information Systems Architects, and Senior Developers. Prerequisites: Previous experience with software architecture is recommended. Some knowledge of Web Services and Object Oriented Analysis and Design is recommended, but not required.
