The title of this book is clear: the term SOA Governance is fairly well known. Oracle SOA Governance 11g is a product suite from Oracle, released in February 2010:
“Oracle SOA Governance 11g consisting of Oracle Enterprise Repository, Oracle Service Registry, SOA Management with Oracle Enterprise Manager, and Oracle Web Services Manager. Oracle SOA Governance 11g, a component of Oracle Fusion Middleware, enables organizations to manage their heterogeneous software project artifacts under a unified governance umbrella. Fully integrated with Oracle SOA Suite 11g, the new release [of SOA Governance 11g] helps organizations simplify governance of software development projects. Oracle SOA Governance 11g is fully integrated with Oracle AmberPoint, a leader in Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) More >

For a long time, OSGi has been a topic of which I was vaguely aware and had a dormant interest in. I never got round to actively diving into this subject. To me OSGi was synonymous with modular Java applications that run in an environment that allow partial and dynamic refresh of parts of the application. I have heard about attempts to apply OSGi concepts to Java EE application servers such as GlassFish (as of v3.0) – initially to the kernel of the Application Server rather than the applications deployed on top of it, subsequently also for deployed applications. Of course the ongoing Project Jigsaw that attempts to bring modularity to the Java platform – JVM and at some point applications running on More >
Begin 2012 verscheen bij uitgeverij Packt Publishing het Oracle Service Bus 11g Development Cookbook – een zeer praktijkgerichte beschrijving van best practices en handige werkwijzen met OSB 11g. Dit boek is geschreven door vijf OSB experts, waarvan drie uit Nederland. Op donderdag 22 maart organiseert AMIS naar aanleiding van het verschijnen van dit boek een speciaal evenement, met de drie Nederlandse auteurs – Jan van Zoggel (RUBIX), Eric Elzinga (Oracle ACE, Xenta Consultancy en AMIS Associate) en Edwin Biemond (Oracle ACE, AMIS Services) – en diverse presentaties en demonstraties van de Oracle Service Bus in de praktijk. We delen exemplaren van het boek uit en spreken over de toekomst van OSB 11g en 12c. De bijeenkomst begint om 17.00 en duurt tot pakweg 21.00 uur. De toegang is zoals altijd gratis. Aanmelden via: evenement-link.

Review of Oracle Service Bus 11g Development Cookbook (Packt Publishing) by Edwin Biemond, Guido Schmutz, Eric Elzinga et. al.3
Recently I gained access to an electronic copy of the just released Oracle Service Bus 11g Development Cookbook, written by five authors – all experts on OSB and three personal acquaintances of mine. I was very interested in learning about the final result after hearing many intermediate comments during the writing process as well as reading the occasional remark on Twitter. Knowing Guido, Eric and Edwin and assuming the same expert level for the other two authors, I anticipated a very interesting read.
Below I will share my impressions from browsing through this solid 500+ page volume. Note: the homepage for the book can be found here: http://www.packtpub.com/oracle-service-bus-11g-development-cookbook/book .
A few months back, in August, I received an electronic copy of the book: “Oracle WebCenter 11g PS3 Administration Cookbook” by Yannick Ongena (Packt Publishing, 2011). I promised you then you write a review on it and now I finally deliver on that promise.
Main conclusion: if you want to get started with WebCenter 11g, this book will help you take your first steps on many of the most important areas of Web Center (Portal). The recipes in the book provide clear instructions on getting things going. Where the Web Center documentation can be a little overwhelming – the Web Center Developer’s Guide has 69 chapters and presumably over 1500 pages of content – Yannick’s book is clear, straightforward and easy to follow.
I am not exactly sure about the intended reader for the book. The title and Yannick’s introduction mention Administration and a technical person responsible for administration. Many recipes however discusses topics and tasks I would associate with developers. So presumably both administrators and developers will benefit from the book. Note that the traditional roles of developer, administrator and end user are not as clearly defined with Web Center Portal: business or end More >
Getting Started With Oracle SOA Suite 11g R1: A Hands-On Tutorial
Authors: Demed L’Her, Heidi Buelow, Jayaram Kasi, Manas Deb, Prasen Palvankar (aka Oracle Product Management for SOA Suite)
A hands-on tutorial is what the cover of the book promises, and that is exactly what you get. A quick, very hands-on introduction into the most important components in the SOA Suite 11g. In no time at all, readers will be able to get a composite application up and running. An application that leverages many of the essential features and functions in the SOA Suite.
Some books are primarily an introduction into a certain topic, with lots of theory, background and explanations of what, why and how. Other books are mainly reference material that you use to look things up when you need them. This book is neither – it offers very little in the way of explanation and background and it would be fairly useless as reference guide. It is however a very good way to get to know the SOA Suite – both design time and run time – and get a feel for how to develop for it and run applications in it.
The book contains a large number of informative screenshots and also provides the salient code snippets. It is very More >
