Overview

Loosely Coupled is the first book to address the advanced issues of web services-currently the hottest topic in IT. While the authors of earlier web-services books approached the topic through the technologies and protocols (which are changing on a month-to-month basis), Doug Kaye has collaborated with the field's most respected technologists to create the ultimate strategic guide to web services for IT managers and executives. Loosely Coupled addresses the most difficult aspects of web services including security, reliable messaging, and long-lived loosely coupled asynchronous transactions. These are the concepts of web services that the experts agree will ultimately be the most important, but for which the standards, protocols, and tools don't yet exist. Doug Kaye explains these missing-piece challenges, describes the ultimate solutions, and helps the reader develop a web-services strategy for his or her organization.
