The Minimum You Need to Know About Service Oriented Architecture, by Roland Hughes


2008 Best Books Award Winner in the category Business: Computers/Technology/Internet – USA Book News.
Service Oriented Architecture is all the rage these days. Dozens, if not hundreds of books are published on it, and more seem to show up every day. This book isn’t awash with buzzwords and jargon. In truth, this book will probably be shunned by the SOA elite.
Rather than focus on the front end, this book focuses on the back end. That Heritage data silo/application where all of the other books just draw a box with “connect somehow” written on it. Most of them try to sell some expensive middleware along the way.
