SOA Patterns Book: Status Update

Great news. Two of my friends and fellow Dr. Dobb's bloggers, Eric Bruno and Udi Dahan, are participating in my (now "our's") SOA Patterns book, which will be published by Manning.

Great news. Two of my friends and fellow Dr. Dobb's bloggers, Eric Bruno and Udi Dahan, are participating in my (now "our's") SOA Patterns book, which will be published by Manning.

Both Udi and Eric are competent and experienced architects in designing SOAs . On the technology side, Udi ("The software simplest") specializes in .NET development; e.g., his nServiceBus framework is a very good example of an endpoint-ware ServiceBus (vs. middleware ServiceBuses which is what most ESBs do). For his part, Eric is a Java and C++ expert and author of Java Messaging (one of the best books on JMS and web services ) and has also has lots of experience in financial systems. Together, the three of us bring a
lot of real-life experience of building large and complicated system into this project.

The current game plan is for Eric to focus on the SOA pitfalls ("anti-patterns") part of the book, Udi to provide a "putting-it-all-together" chapter , and for me to cover what’s left. I am sure however, that their experience and insight will also help make the other parts of the book (even? ) better.

If you are not familiar with the book, you may want to take a look at the first chapter and/or some of the published patterns like Saga, Service Firewall, Gridable Service, Edge Component and (a very early draft of) Aggregated Reporting pattern. Also you can take a look at the slides from my "SOA Patterns" presentation at Dr. Dobb's Architecture & Design world last year, which illustrates some additional patterns.
