Prentice Hall today announced the publication of SOA Design Patterns, an innovative catalog of 85 design patterns for service-oriented architecture and service-orientation that documents the most proven and successful design techniques for succeeding with modern-day SOA. In conjunction with the release of the book, the new SOAPatterns.org (www.soapatterns.org) community site has been launched, providing an open forum for the on-going development and expansion of the pattern catalog.
Thomas Erl, the world’s top-selling SOA author and series editor of The Prentice Hall Service-Oriented Computing Series from Thomas Erl, spearheaded the community effort behind the creation of SOA Design Patterns. In development for over three years, the catalog has been subjected to comprehensive reviews by hundreds of industry professionals, employed by many of the world’s leading technology companies. For a complete list of reviewer and contributor acknowledgments, please visit: http://www.soapatterns.org/acknowledgements.asp
In support of the on-going expansion of the SOA design patterns catalog, the SOAPatterns.org site launched in coordination with the book provides an open forum for the development and review of upcoming candidate patterns. Members of the SOA and patterns communities are welcome to contribute, review, and use the content on this site and can submit their own candidate patterns. Of the 20 candidate patterns currently published at SOAPatterns.org, some notable additions are the five REST-inspired patterns recently contributed by authors including Raj Balasubramanian, co-author of the upcoming book “SOA with REST.”(Prentice Hall)
SOA Design Patterns received enthusiastic participation throughout IT communities. Contributors included David Chappell and Clemens Utschig from Oracle, Mark Little from Red Hat, and Jason Hogg from Microsoft. Furthermore, Dennis Wisnosky, Chief Architect and Chief Technical Officer, Office of the Chief Management Officer in the U.S. Department of Defense, contributed a chapter that explains how these design patterns (together with the design principles originally documented in Erl’s previous book, SOA Principles of Service Design), are being successfully applied within the U.S. Department of Defense as part of their SOA adoption initiatives.
In addition to the adoption of Erl’s patterns and principles by several colleges and universities, this book, along with other series titles, such as the recently released Web Service Contract Design & Versioning for SOA, have been made part of the official curriculum for the industry-recognized SOA Certified Professional (SOACP) education program from SOASchool.com.
“The release of this book is a testament to the state of maturation that service-oriented computing, as a distinct distributed computing platform, has attained,” said Erl. “As modern services-based technologies continue to reach their own respective stages of maturity, the SOA design pattern catalog will continue to expand in order to encompass more specialized design practices and techniques.”
The SOA Design Patterns manuscript was also reviewed by distinguished members of the patterns community, such as Grady Booch, Martin Fowler, and Ralph Johnson, one of the original members of the Gang of Four. Grady Booch, IBM Fellow and co-developer of the Unified Modeling Language (UML), provided the foreword for the book, in which he states: “SOA Design Patterns is an important contribution to the literature and practice of building and delivering quality software-intensive systems."
In order to make the patterns broadly accessible to IT professionals, a series of articles will be published on a weekly basis, with each article providing an original, summarized description of one pattern. The first article is scheduled for mid-January and the series will then continue for the following 85 weeks, into 2010. The articles will be published on www.informit.com and will be made available for syndication in third-party publications.
The official website for SOA Design Patterns is www.soapatterns.com. More information about other series titles is available at www.soabooks.com. Additional related resource sites include: www.whatissoa.com, www.soamag.com, www.soaprinciples.com, and the aforementioned www.soapatterns.org.

The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world. If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you’ll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, “Things,” Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from hardware to software, or as we like to say, it’s an Internet of many different things. The difference ...

The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality. Options for on-site private cloud are diverse as well, and must be designed and deployed while taking existing legacy architecture and infrastructure into account. Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs. In this Power Panel at 15th Cloud Expo (http://www.CloudComputingExpo.com), moderated by Ashar Baig, Research Director, Cloud, at Gigaom Research, Nate Gordon, Director of T...

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...
