As a cookbook, this book can be regarded as a set of gourmet recipes for SOA. Each of the eight chapters that follow the introductory chapter covers an important concept in process-based SOA and teaches techniques to build solutions based on the concept. Working examples are developed in BPEL, TIBCO's BusinessWorks and BEA's Weblogic Integration. The book is intended for hands-on SOA architects, designers, and developers who want to learn techniques in process orchestration. Many of these readers use, or will soon start using, languages such as BPEL, TIBCO's BusinessWorks, or BEA's Weblogic Integration in their projects.This intermediate-level book assumes that the reader is comfortable reading XML and knows the basic concepts of web services. The book presents several BPEL and BPMN examples, but it explains specific language constructs on the fly; the reader need not have background in these languages.
