The IBM SOA Foundation Suite is an integrated, open-standards-based set of software, best practices, and patterns that help you systematically maximize the business value of SOA. Understanding IBM SOA Foundation Suite brings together 26 hands-on tutorials that will help you master IBM SOA Foundation and apply it successfully in your organization. Four of IBM’s SOA practitioners identify core IBM SOA Foundation components and usage scenarios, and walk you step-by-step through implementing them in real-world environments. This book’s self-contained tutorials are presented both in print and through video on the accompanying CD-ROM, showing you the results of every action immediately, whether you’re running the software or not. Using these tutorials, technical professionals can quickly move up the learning curve, discovering how each product works, and how they fit together. You’ll gain the big picture overview you need to make intelligent up-front decisions, and all the hands-on practice you need to prototype working solutions.
