Understanding Service-Oriented Architecture (TT7000)

Vendor# TT7000

GK# 1043

Course Overview

In this course, you will learn the impact of Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA), what is different about SOA, and the overall process of adoption and implementation. You will focus on what separates an ad hoc set of web services (NOT SOA) from a managed, vibrant, reusable catalog of enterprise services (definitely SOA). You will cover the entire spectrum from the promise of cloud computing to the grit of XML content. You will get a clear picture of how a service orientation can fundamentally change the dynamics of how software is developed and "lives" within an enterprise.

You will cover practical issues for enterprise applications relative to SOA and gain the knowledge and foresight to lead and participate in the implementation of a realistic SOA-based business application project. You will also examine advanced topics like Enterprise Service Bus (ESB), the Business Process Execution Language (BPEL), SOAP, Web Services Description Language (WSDL), and web services.
