    ITEM#: 13992647

    Jos Dirksen is a software architect with extensive experience applying open source tools to integration and governance challenges. He is coauthor of Open Source ESBs in Action.


    SOA Governance in Action is a hands-on guide for developers and technology leads who need to develop and implement policies for SOA projects. This book introduces the fundamentals of good governance, the best practices for implementing them, and how to support governance using various open source tools. You'll follow an extensive case study that addresses the areas of service design, security, testing, and performance.

    About the Technology

    Governance is a serious word for a simple idea-defining processes, roles, and expectations for a software project. It's especially important in SOA where you have multiple stakeholders, competing requirements, and complex integration tasks. Good SOA governance blends established best practices, strong management and monitoring tools, and the flexibility to embrace new technologies and patterns.

    About the Book

    SOA Governance in Action shows developers how to apply governance concepts and implementation practices to achieve success in SOA projects. You'll learn practical techniques like building a metadata repository using WSO2 Registry or a custom monitoring dashboard using Bamos BAM. You'll also explore other supporting tools, such as using OpenAM, to implement security-related policies. Along the way, you'll explore the nuances of writing policies that work for the project and click with your corporate culture.

    Written for business application developers. Familiarity with Java and BPMN is helpful but not required.

    Purchase of the print book comes with an offer of a free PDF, ePub, and Kindle eBook from Manning. Also available is all code from the book.
