Would you like to use a consistent visual notation for drawing integration solutions? "Look inside the front cover." Do you want to harness the power of asynchronous systems without getting caught in the pitfalls? "See "Thinking Asynchronously" in the Introduction." Do you want to know which style of application integration is best for your purposes? "See Chapter 2, Integration Styles." Do you want to learn techniques for processing messages concurrently? "See Chapter 10, Competing Consumers and Message Dispatcher." Do you want to learn how you can track asynchronous messages as they flow across distributed systems? "See Chapter 11, Message History and Message Store." Do you want to understand how a system designed using integration patterns can be implemented using Java Web services, .NET message queuing, and a TIBCO-based publish-subscribe architecture? "See Chapter 9, Interlude: Composed Messaging." Utilizing years of practical experience, seasoned experts Gregor Hohpe and Bobby Woolf show how asynchronous messaging has proven to be the best strategy for enterprise integration success. However, building and deploying messaging solutions presents a number of problems for developers. " Enterprise Integration Patterns " provides an invaluable catalog of sixty-five patterns, with real-world solutions that demonstrate the formidable of messaging and help you to design effective messaging solutions for your enterprise. The authors also include examples covering a variety of different integration technologies, such as JMS, MSMQ, TIBCO ActiveEnterprise, Microsoft BizTalk, SOAP, and XSL. A case study describing a bond trading system illustrates the patterns in practice, and the book offers a look at emerging standards, as well as insights into what the future of enterprise integration might hold. This book provides a consistent vocabulary and visual notation framework to describe large-scale integration solutions across many technologies. It also explores in detail the advantages and limitations of asynchronous messaging architectures. The authors present practical advice on designing code that connects an application to a messaging system, and provide extensive information to help you determine when to send a message, how to route it to the proper destination, and how to monitor the health of a messaging system. If you want to know how to manage, monitor, and maintain a messaging system once it is in use, get this book. 0321200683B09122003

The first complete, cutting-edge guide to building REST-based services with Microsoft's .NET Framework • • Shows .NET developers why REST is so exciting, how it works, and how both client and server-based code can access data using REST services. • Covers leading-edge technologies and approaches, including Astoria, REST on WCF, Silverlight 2.0, and ASP.NET MVC • 100% practical: focused on building REST capability into real applications, and leveraging REST's benefits quickly and painlessly. Developers are discovering REST's immense potential to simplify the development of sophisticated web services and applications that incorporate externally-sourced data. There is little information on using REST with the .NET platform. In Effective REST Services via .NET, .NET experts Kenn Scribner and Scott Seely show exactly how to use the .NET Framework's core building blocks to consume and serve RESTful services. Scribner and Seely first explain why REST services offer so much value to the developers of today's web services and Web 2.0 applications. Next, using realistic examples, they demonstrate how REST services work, and how REST services can best be used in both desktop-based and Web-based applications. Scribner and Seely conclude by introducing Microsoft's revolutionary cloud computing initiative, and showing how to access data from the computational cloud via Microsoft's new 'Service Bus.' This book covers cutting-edge technology, but from start to finish it's 100% practical - focused on solving real problems with working tools.
Learn the nuts and bolts of cloud computing with Windows Azure, Microsoft's new Internet services platform. Written by a key member of the product development team, this book shows you how to build, deploy, host, and manage applications using Windows Azure's programming model and essential storage services. Chapters in Programming Windows Azure are organized to reflect the platform's buffet of services. The book's first half focuses on how to write and host application code on Windows Azure, while the second half explains all of the options you have for storing and accessing data on the platform with high scalability and reliability. Lots of code samples and screenshots are available to help you along the way. Learn how to build applications using the Windows Azure toolset Discover how Windows Azure works under the hood, and learn the how and the why behind several features Choose to write application code in .NET or other languages such as C/C++, PHP, or Ruby Understand the various options for managing your service Get up to speed on Azure's storage services, including blobs, queues, and tables Build a secure backup system, and learn about cloud application security, cryptography, and performance

What is much less well understood, and the primary focus of this book, is how the the Windows Azure technology can be applied in real-world scenarios and made to work for you. This book answers those questions, demonstrating how all the features of Windows Azure - both old and new - can be put to work. By the time you're done reading, you will be comfortable building high-quality end-to-end Windows Azure services of your own. The book, like the Azure platform itself, is divided into three key parts - Windows Azure, SQL Azure, and Windows Azure AppFabric. Each of these plays a unique role in the functioning of your cloud service. It is the goal of this book to show you how to use these components, both separately and together, to build flawless cloud applications as well as hybrid architectures that fit in alongside your business' existing systems. Pro Windows Azure Platform, Second Edition is a down-to-earth, code-centric book that shows precisely how the all the components of Windows Azure are employed, and demonstrates the techniques and best practices you'll need to put them to work.
