SOA & web services concepts


Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) is the emerging architectural style for business applications. It promotes loose coupling and interoperability, so that end-to-end business applications can easily be built from a set of business-aligned services. Web services are the most common basis for concretely implementing these SOA ideas.

In this course participants get an overview of SOA principles and web services: the concepts, the standards, the products and implementations.

Main topics

  • Evolution of distributed computing
  • SOA principles
  • The importance of XML
  • Web service basics
  • Standards and standard bodies
  • Exchanging messages: SOAP, RPC vs. document style, MEPs, REST
  • Describing web services: WSDL
  • Registering and discovering web services: UDDI and repositories
  • Implementing web services (Java EE, Microsoft, PHP, ...)
  • SOA and second generation web services (WS-*)
  • Security (WS-Security)
  • Orchestration and choreography; business processes; BPEL
  • Transactions (WS-Coordination, WS-Transaction)
  • Reliable messaging and Addressing
  • Enterprise Service Bus (ESB)
  • SOA Governance and Policies

Intended for

Analysts, application developers, database administrators or project leaders wanting to situate SOA and web services.

Interessante insteek mbt beheer van systemen. Google : running on rubbish. (, )
Bon cours pour des Web services (Introduction + Technique). Le professeur connait bien les web services et explique bien cette partie. Vue global le matin concernant les WS et concept global SOA. (, )
I appreciate, it was a good course (, )
It's a good high level course; it should last 2 days and have more explanation on the XML schemes and properties (, )
it's good to stay at conceptual level, but the details should be accurate. I would have gone to details in order to read the WSDL. Governance, and especially versioning, could have been specific points of interest; (, )
Good ! Would have preferred a trainer with more "field" experience on this topic, but iit is understable since it is an "intro" training (, )
très bien (, )
Le contenu était très bon, mais la matière compliquée (, )
te veel info op 1 dag (, )
Très bonne maitrise de la part du prof (, )
