Web services has been promising to solve several business problems, including those of integration and interoperability. While Web services standards like SOAP, WSDL, and UDDI help to facilitate it, they don't really ensure it. In the past, application-to-application integration and business-to-business integration were not easy due to the various platforms involved or different software used. With the advent of Web services and related standards, it all looks very simple. Web services standards have been widely adopted by several vendors, who provide their own implementation for these standards and tools to develop and deploy Web services. With the evolution of these standards, multiple versions and multiple implementations of Web services coexist among the applications. Loose definitions in standards may be interpreted in different ways. For example, SOAPAction, d... (more)

Building Business Processes Part 1

A business process in the real world typically is never done end-to-end by a single employee.

Capturing the Aspects of SOA Service Ownership

As the field of service-oriented architecture (SOA) evolves, it brings interesting challenges that should be addressed in order to drive its adoption and realize the benefits it has been promising. It took a while for many to understand that SOA is not purely a technology issue. SOA is an IT strategy and it requires a shift in the way we think about how IT is aligned with business and how an organization can support and drive SOA within the enterprise. The popular IS Strategy Triangle framework emphasizes the need for alignment between business, IT and organizational strategies.[1... (more)

SOA Testing Framework

Service-oriented architecture (SOA) has become today's technology buzz and it's rapidly becoming a mainstream approach to enterprise systems design. Beyond the buzz of SOA, organizations face several challenges as they attempt to truly effectuate the paradigm shift towards SOA. One critical challenge is: How can we assure the quality of the business services that we build? Can the services we build withstand the test of rapid organizational change? One way to address this challenge is through the use of effective testing methodologies and tools for the services deployed under an ... (more)
