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.

Very good but a lot of topics covered at high level. It would have been better to focus on some deeply or to do the training over several days (, )
Cours intéressant mais trop intense/dense: trop de concept (, )

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. (, )
It's a good high level course; it should last 2 days and have more explanation on the XML schemes and properties (, )
