Overview

TIBCO® Architecture Fundamentals is a must-read for anybody involved with the architecture and design of distributed systems, system integration issues, or service-based application design.”

—Bert Hooyman, Chief Architect, Europe, for MphasiS (an HP Company)

 

“I would like all the folks on my team to read this, to ensure we are all on the same page with the deliverables that are expected from architecture teams involved in global projects and the role that the TIBCO tools play in implementing these solutions.”

—Joseph G. Meyer, Director of Architecture Services and R&D, Citi

TIBCO’s product suite comprises a diverse range of components. Each component is specialized for a particular functionality, ranging from basic messaging through services, service orchestration, the management of complex business processes, managing master data across multiple systems, and the interpretation ofmassive streams of events (complex event processing).

 

The architecture series from TIBCO® Press comprises a coordinated set of books for software architects and developers, showing how to combine TIBCO components to design and build real-world solutions.

 

TIBCO® Architecture Fundamentals is the core book for understanding and using the TIBCO product suite. It focuses on the TIBCO ActiveMatrix® product suite and a handful of the other most commonly used components, including the TIBCO Enterprise Message ServiceTM and TIBCO BusinessEventsTM. The book provides a sound basis for applying TIBCO products to solve the most common integration and SOA challenges faced by architects and developers. In addition, it lays the foundation for the more advanced books to be added to the architecture series.

 

Designed to make the material as accessible as possible, the book starts with concrete problems architects and developers face every day, showing how to solve these problems with combinations of TIBCO (and selected third-party) products. In the context of specific design scenarios, it also discusses key concepts and decision trade-offs. To accomplish its practical aims, the book 

  • Provides useful techniques for discussing and documenting architectures
  • Presents reference architectures (design patterns) for solving common SOA and system integration problems
  • Describes each problem and solution from both business process and technical perspectives
  • Supplies an overview of the typical solution roles played by different TIBCO products 

The book largely avoids the code-level detail already available in the product manuals, concentrating instead on blueprints for solving whole classes of problems.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

TIBCO® Architecture Fundamentals is a must-read for anybody involved with the architecture and design of distributed systems, with system integration issues, or with service-based application design. In particular, solution architects responsible for TIBCO-based systems architectures should consider reading this book and its planned follow-on titles.

“The product portfolio of TIBCO today is simply too broad for anybody to have an ongoing detailed understanding of what is in there and what elements of the portfolio are best suited in a given business scenario. Paul Brown provides the required oversight in this book, helping both experienced solution architects and newcomers in the field find their way through the myriad technology options TIBCO offers today.”

–Bert Hooyman, Chief Architect, Europe for MphasiS (an HP Company)

“In his previous books, Dr. Brown developed the ‘total architecture concept’ in a generic setting. In this one, he presents a concrete application of it to the TIBCO product line. It will be a valuable resource to anyone developing solutions with those tools.”

–Glenn Smith, Principal Consultant, Appian

“This material is spot on for what is needed in enterprises today, to give a level set to all the architecture teams and project teams they interact with, to outline what is expected, and the roles that each play. In addition, it is a timely overview of the latest TIBCO product suites, and I am anxious to see the follow-ups to this (BusinessEvents- and BPM-focused materials).

“This book provides a detailed look at what happens in the creation of an integration architecture for a business problem. Paul’s attempt to capture in words the years of project experience will be a benefit for groups getting familiar with establishing an enterprise architecture standard, as well as a refresher for those performing this function today.

“I would like for all the folks on my team to read this to ensure we are all on the same page with the deliverables that are expected from architecture teams involved in global projects, and the role that the TIBCO tools play in implementing these solutions.”

–Joseph G. Meyer, Director of Architecture Services and R&D, Citi

“Brown’s approach to presenting the highly complex architectural issues is by far the best I have encountered. While each of the individual areas has been detailed in other texts, this is the only publication I have read that lays out each aspect of the architectural issues and describes them in an easy-to-read, comfortable style.”

–James G. Keegan Jr., President, Intrepico, Inc.

“I recommend the book wholeheartedly. The combination of breadth and depth is not usually found in technical books.”

–Lloyd Fischer, Senior Software Architect, WellCare Health Plans
