Service Oriented Architecture training course will equip learners with a strong understanding of the beginner to advanced-level concepts of implementing SOA in the business and prepare you for SOA Exam. The major topics of this web services and architecture course include SOA in detail, Understanding the concept of ESB and Open source ESBs, Overview and Implementation of Mule ESB, Integration of Mule ESB and JBPM6 and SOFEA and Enterprise Application development using Mule.
SOA-Service Oriented Architecture
A service-oriented architecture (SOA) is an architectural pattern in computer software design in which application components provide services to other components via a communications protocol, typically over a network. The principles of service-orientation are independent of any vendor, product or technology.
- A service-oriented architecture is essentially a collection of services.
- These services communicate with each other.
- The communication can involve either simple data passing or it could involve two or more services coordinating some activity.
- Some means of connecting services to each other is needed.
- Service-oriented architectures are not a new thing.
- The first service-oriented architecture for many people in the past was with the use DCOM or Object Request Brokers (ORBs) based on the CORBA specification.
SOA Stands for Service oriented architecture
- SOA is a software architectural pattern
- SOA is an approach to developing enterprises systems by loosely coupling interoperable services
- Service orchestration is the main theme that makes SOA work
Backbone of SOA is a service
Service is a self contained, re-usable unit of software that can execute a particular task and that can be invoked from multiple systems developed in various platforms. For instance, retrieving your bank account balance.
If a service-oriented architecture is to be effective, we need a clear understanding of the term service. A service is a function that is well-defined, self-contained, and does not depend on the context or state of other services.
Application or service orchestration is the process of integrating two or more applications and /or services together to automate a process.
SOA Based Integration platform
- Insurance claim application (Client app)
- Customer service
- Claim validity service
- Balance status service
- Debit balance service
SOA helps in the following scenarios
- SOA helps identify functions used by multiple systems or applications and bundle them into reusable, self – contained services.
- SOA promotes using standards, which is critical in any integration because standards create a common baseline for all parties to work on.
- SOA enhances the integration capability with the flexibility to plug in, change, or update services almost seamlessly to clients with SOA’s decoupling capabilities.
- Some organisations aren’t willing to give up their tried and tested technologies. In these cases, SOA can help by wrapping legacy applications in standardized ways, enabling their exposure in a standards based environment suited for integration and reuse.
- Applications are loosely coupled
- Location transparency
- Improved Testability
- High availability
