Prentice Hall Announces Publication of SOA Design Patterns and SOAPatterns.org Community Site

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.

These days, APIs have become an integral part of the digital transformation journey for all enterprises. Every digital innovation story is connected to APIs . But have you ever pondered over to know what are the source of these APIs? Let me explain - APIs sources can be varied, internal or external, solving different purposes, but mostly categorized into the following two categories. Data lakes is a term used to represent disconnected but relevant data that are used by various business units wit...
Today most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall. As with most new architectures, this dream takes significant work to become a reality. Even when you do get your application componentized enough and packaged properly, there are still challenges for DevOps teams to making the shift to continuous delivery and achieving that reducti...
Most of the time there is a lot of work involved to move to the cloud, and most of that isn't really related to AWS or Azure or Google Cloud. Before we talk about public cloud vendors and DevOps tools, there are usually several technical and non-technical challenges that are connected to it and that every company needs to solve to move to the cloud. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Stefano Bellasio, CEO and founder of Cloud Academy Inc., will discuss what the tools, disciplines, and cultural...

"NetApp's vision is how we help organizations manage data - delivering the right data in the right place, in the right time, to the people who need it, and doing it agnostic to what the platform is," explained Josh Atwell, Developer Advocate for NetApp, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
The “Digital Era” is forcing us to engage with new methods to build, operate and maintain applications. This transformation also implies an evolution to more and more intelligent applications to better engage with the customers, while creating significant market differentiators. In both cases, the cloud has become a key enabler to embrace this digital revolution. So, moving to the cloud is no longer the question; the new questions are HOW and WHEN. To make this equation even more complex, most ...
Many organizations adopt DevOps to reduce cycle times and deliver software faster; some take on DevOps to drive higher quality and better end-user experience; others look to DevOps for a clearer line-of-sight to customers to drive better business impacts. In truth, these three foundations go together. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit 21st Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Co-Chair Andi Mann, industry experts will discuss how leading organizations build application success from all...
‘Trend’ is a pretty common business term, but its definition tends to vary by industry. In performance monitoring, trend, or trend shift, is a key metric that is used to indicate change. Change is inevitable. Today’s websites must frequently update and change to keep up with competition and attract new users, but such changes can have a negative impact on the user experience if not managed properly. The dynamic nature of the Internet makes it necessary to constantly monitor different metrics. O...
Agile has finally jumped the technology shark, expanding outside the software world. Enterprises are now increasingly adopting Agile practices across their organizations in order to successfully navigate the disruptive waters that threaten to drown them. In our quest for establishing change as a core competency in our organizations, this business-centric notion of Agile is an essential component of Agile Digital Transformation. In the years since the publication of the Agile Manifesto, the conn...
Many organizations are now looking to DevOps maturity models to gauge their DevOps adoption and compare their maturity to their peers. However, as enterprise organizations rush to adopt DevOps, moving past experimentation to embrace it at scale, they are in danger of falling into the trap that they have fallen into time and time again. Unfortunately, we've seen this movie before, and we know how it ends: badly.
The last two years has seen discussions about cloud computing evolve from the public / private / hybrid split to the reality that most enterprises will be creating a complex, multi-cloud strategy. Companies are wary of committing all of their resources to a single cloud, and instead are choosing to spread the risk – and the benefits – of cloud computing across multiple providers and internal infrastructures, as they follow their business needs. Will this approach be successful? How large is the ...
Enterprises are moving to the cloud faster than most of us in security expected. CIOs are going from 0 to 100 in cloud adoption and leaving security teams in the dust. Once cloud is part of an enterprise stack, it’s unclear who has responsibility for the protection of applications, services, and data. When cloud breaches occur, whether active compromise or a publicly accessible database, the blame must fall on both service providers and users. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben Johnson, C...
The nature of the technology business is forward-thinking. It focuses on the future and what’s coming next. Innovations and creativity in our world of software development strive to improve the status quo and increase customer satisfaction through speed and increased connectivity. Yet, while it's exciting to see enterprises embrace new ways of thinking and advance their processes with cutting edge technology, it rarely happens rapidly or even simultaneously across all industries.
One of the biggest challenges with adopting a DevOps mentality is: new applications are easily adapted to cloud-native, microservice-based, or containerized architectures - they can be built for them - but old applications need complex refactoring. On the other hand, these new technologies can require relearning or adapting new, oftentimes more complex, methodologies and tools to be ready for production. In his general session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Chris Brown, Solutions Marketi...
Leading companies, from the Global Fortune 500 to the smallest companies, are adopting hybrid cloud as the path to business advantage. Hybrid cloud depends on cloud services and on-premises infrastructure working in unison. Successful implementations require new levels of data mobility, enabled by an automated and seamless flow across on-premises and cloud resources. In his general session at 21st Cloud Expo, Greg Tevis, an IBM Storage Software Technical Strategist and Customer Solution Architec...

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
As DevOps methodologies expand their reach across the enterprise, organizations face the daunting challenge of adapting related cloud strategies to ensure optimal alignment, from managing complexity to ensuring proper governance. How can culture, automation, legacy apps and even budget be reexamined to enable this ongoing shift within the modern software factory?
