A complete practitioner's catalog of proven domain services design solutions that can help any organization leverage SOA's full benefits * *Provides a vocabulary of proven SOA design solutions, with concrete examples and code that is easy for architects to adapt and implement. *By Rob Daigneau, one of the industry's leading experts in complex systems integration. *Helps architects and IT leaders accurately set stakeholder expectations for major SOA initiatives. Service-oriented architectures are typically called upon to deliver two general categories of services: enterprise services and domain services. Enterprise services are essentially composite services that typically leverage technologies such as message-oriented middleware. Domain services are the building blocks these composites depend upon. Each service category is best served by a distinct set of design solutions. This is the first book to systematically identify and explain best practice patterns for domain services. Rob Daigneau expands upon the Service Layer concept (covered expertly by Fowler in Patterns of Enterprise Application Architecture ) domain services can be used with Enterprise Integration Patterns (made famous by Hohpe and Woolf). Daigneau begins by reviewing SOA concepts, illuminating the distinctions between enterprise and domain services, and identifying key relationships between domain services and other pattern groups. Next, he introduces each essential pattern for creating and delivering domain services, providing a vocabulary of design solutions that architects and other IT professionals can implement by referencing and adapting the concrete examples he supplies.

Web 2.0 is more pervasive than ever, with business analysts and technologists struggling to comprehend the opportunity it represents. So what exactly is Web 2.0 -- a marketing term or technical reality? This fascinating book finally puts substance behind the phenomenon by identifying the core patterns of Web 2.0, and by introducing an abstract model and reference architecture to help you take advantage of them. In Web 2.0 Architectures, authors Duane Nickull, Dion Hinchcliffe, and James Governor -- who have 40 years of combined experience with technical specifications and industry trends -- examine what makes successful Web 2.0 services such as Google AdSense, Flickr, BitTorrent, MySpace, Facebook, and Wikipedia work. The result is a base of knowledge that developers, business people, futurists, and entrepreneurs can understand and use as a source of ideas and inspiration. This book reveals: A Web 2.0 model: How the classic Client-Server model evolved into a more detailed Web 2.0 model. Web 2.0 reference architecture: A generic component view of basic Web 2.0 patterns that can be repurposed for other commercial ventures. Specific Web 2.0 patterns: How service oriented architecture (SOA), Software as a Service (SaaS), participation-collaboration, mashups, rich user experience, collaborative tagging systems (Folksonomy), and more can be used in your business. If you want to understand what makes Web 2.0 tick, and how it will enhance your business, Web 2.0 Architectures takes you right to the core.
