    Execellent Book on SOA and Enterprise Integration

    This is a great book to provide an overview of the Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) and the underlying technologies. The book is also very comprehensive and there are enough details in the book to be practical for IT Professionals who wish to implement SOA. There are in fact code examples that will let an IT professional start coding services and service consumers. The book takes a step-by-step approach and readers do not need to have prior knowledge of either SOA or Enterprise Integration, which also known as applications' integration. I would highly recommend this book to a variety of readers.

    A handy reference book

    When I started reading this book, my immediate impression was this would be yet another book on SOA by an IBMer. But contrary to my initial opion, the book turned out to be a refresher on SOA techniques and integration approach.

    Dr. Roshen has used his experience in implementing these techniques to provide reader a balanced understanding of various SOA-Based integration techniques and the benefits of one over the other.

    I believe this is a book that would benefit everyone alike, whether be an Architect or a developer as well as wil be a reference for non hands-on IT consultant who would want to do a quick reference of various integration patterns.
