Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) has become a widely accepted paradigm in the industry. The increased demand for asynchronous exchange of business data has driven the need for SOAs. Different messaging middleware employed by enterprises means that BEA needs to provide a way to integrate this middleware with the BEA family of products. This paper from BEA Systems discusses the setup and configuration of clustered BEA AquaLogic Service Bus 2.1 and WebSphere MQ (version 5.3 and higher) with Extended Transactional Client. The focus of the paper is on distributed transactional request/response messaging communication between these products.
This paper published by BEA AquaLogic Data Services Platform enables data service architects to build data services that can access, aggregate, and update information from multiple heterogeneous data sources in a uniform way. Data services built and deployed using it can be easily shared and reused by multiple applications in a Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA).

The economic potential and social benefits of RFID technology have been acknowledged by experts from academia, business, and politics. RFID implementations are ""Expanding the scope of supply chain management from internal functional excellence to collaboration with other members of the supply chain, and then to synchronization of activities across the whole supply chain."" Beyond that, RFID has enabled a level of symbiosis and synergy among organizations that was unheard of in the past. Wal-Marts Retail Link is one example of this new level of interrelationship and mutual support.
This paper explains the growing business and operational IT trends that are causing government bodies to offer Shared Services. The paper moves from outlining the business case for Shared Services toward a discussion of architectural control points and service features. Shared Services are composite applications made available via technologies such as Web services, which simultaneously reduce costs and enable more dynamic results. They bridge legacy and newly developed applications across diverse organizations to provide the public sector with more efficient means of serving civilians, employees, business partners, or any other end-user base.
Service Component Architecture (SCA) is a specification which describes a model for building applications and systems using a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA). This white paper discusses the motivation behind SCA, describes the major features of the architecture and presents the areas for future development of the specification. The paper also explains how SCA extends and complements prior approaches to implementing services, and how SCA builds on open standards.
Companies building portals no longer see ""Simpler access to information"" as an end in itself. They typically view the portal as the linchpin of a larger IT strategy of assembling composite applications to solve those business problems that cannot be solved through a single platform. While there is no accepted descriptor for the types of applications organizations seeks to build, almost everyone in the industry accepts the premise that the gaps between traditional applications will be filled by a new breed of software that might better be described as ""Assembled"" rather than ""Developed.""
This white paper published by BEA Systems gives a technical outline of BEA AquaLogic Service Bus. It describes the enterprise service bus (ESB) and the operational service management functionality that BEA AquaLogic Service Bus provides to integrate and manage service interactions inside and outside the enterprise with enterprise-class reliability and scalability. This white paper provides a technical overview of BEA AquaLogic Service Bus.
This paper published by BEA Systems discusses about BEA AquaLogic Product Family. BEA AquaLogic is the first service-infrastructure product family built from the ground up for Service-Oriented Architectures, allowing services to be discovered, secured, managed, and assembled into composite applications and processes for greater business agility and IT efficiency. It opens new channels of collaboration within and across organizational boundaries, so business can grow with the flow.
BEA AquaLogic Data Services Platform lets data service architects build data services that can access, aggregate, and update information from multiple heterogeneous data sources in a uniform way. Data services built and deployed using it can be easily shared and reused by multiple applications in a Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA). This paper briefly describes the security features that BEA AquaLogic Data Services Platform provides, along with its benefits and common scenarios for applying security.
