About the book
This book is targeted at practitioners who wish to get insights into developing SOA solutions. Software architects, designers, developers, project managers and consultants can benefit significantly from this book. At the same time, beginners can also get an understanding of the concepts and how SOA based solutions are developed in practice today. Strawman architecture for Enterprise-wide SOA and reference architectures for SOA based applications can serve to be very convenient starting points for anyone wanting to recommend or develop SOA solution. Designers can follow the methodologies outlined for service design in this book and come up with services model for their applications.

The best practices identified through executing a number of SOA projects, provide the much needed guidance to project teams.

Foreworded by Arun Jain, Chairman & Managing Director, Polaris Software Lab Ltd.
New to the second edition:
Keeping in mind the feedback received and the changes taking place in technology and in IT industry, the following enhancements are included.

1) Introduce Software Engineering as Chapter 1 – One of the points given as feedback for the first edition is that there are several practicing developers, testers and project/program managers who are interested in SOA but do not have the necessary background or experience in Software Engineering. Accordingly, “Software Engineering Principles” has been added as the first chapter.

2) Cloud Computing – Since the launch of the book, Cloud computing and services based on the “Cloud” (internet cloud) have emerged as major trends related to deploying and leveraging of services. Therefore, separate chapters on Cloud Computing Concepts, Cloud Computing Platforms and SOA with Cloud Services have been included.
