Challenges, requirements and best practices for creating a good Microservicess architecture, and what role an Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) plays in this game.
This slide deck revisits Enterprise Integration Patterns (EIP) and gives an overview about the status quo. Fortunately, EIPs offer more possibilities than just be used for modelling integration problems in a standardized way. Several frameworks and tools already implement these patterns. The developer does not have to implement EIPs on his own. Therefore, the end of the slide deck shows different frameworks and tools available, which can be used for modelling and implementing complex integration scenarios by using the EIPs.
In the last few days, I had to evaluate the product SOAtest (Parasoft). SOAtest is an Eclipse-based testing tool, which supports most important technologies and vendors to test your Service-oriented Architecture (SOA) technically.
This article is a first-hand report about preparing for the SOACP certification and passing the exam. I decided to do this certification after I met Thomas Erl at the SOA Symposium 2010 in Berlin, Germany (see this older blog). I will tell you, why I like this certification and why (in my opinion) it makes a lot of sense. But I will also criticize some small details.
In October 2010, I was at the IT conference „SOA / Cloud Symposium 2010“. I really liked the conference as I stated in another blog entry. But one concern really upset me…
I was at the SOA / Cloud Symposium (5th and 6th October 2010) in Berlin, Germany. As the name already states: The two main topics were SOA and Cloud. This IT conference is the most important vendor-independant confernce regarding these topics. Business drivers for SOA, concepts, design patterns, use case studies and best pracitices were presented by well known, world wide SOA experts.
What IT certification should I do next? This is what I wondered within the last weeks, after I passed the SCJP 6 successfully some months ago. I surfed the internet a lot to find information about possible IT certifications.
