Tags: David Chou

The only detailed, hands-on guide to building Service- Oriented Architecture solutions with the newest Microsoft .NET and Azure technologies * *Shows how to go beyond yesterday's distributed architectures to implement fully service-oriented enterprise solutions. *Fully explains new technologies ranging from WCF and REST to Azure and Web Services Enhancements (WSE) *Includes examples and case studies drawn from the authors' unsurpassed experience. *Co-authored by Thomas Erl, the world's #1 SOA expert In this book, top Microsoft enterprise architect Christoph Schittko and world renowned SOA expert Thomas Erl thoroughly illuminate Microsoft's latest .NET and Azure Web services innovations. They show Microsoft's new technologies now offer powerful foundation for tomorrow's loosely coupled, highly agile, interoperable systems. Architects and developers will discover how these new technologies can be used to transcend yesterday's RPC-centric approaches, and build fully service-oriented enterprise solutions. Schittko and Erl show how to use today's .NET service technologies with both Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) and REST, and thoroughly introduce Microsoft's important new cloud-based Azure services. Next, they walk through building several common types of services with .NET, including utility, entity, and task services and walk through composing and orchestrating services into complete solutions. Their far-ranging coverage includes security, performance tuning, BizTalk and the Enterprise Service Bus, Business Activity Monitoring, Web Services Enhancements (WSE), and much more. To help architects and developers make the most of these technologies, SOA with .NET and Azure contains multiple examples drawn from the authors' unsurpassed personal SOA implementation experience, as well as a full chapter of case studies.
