Whereas many other books focus on the front-end of SOA, this book focuses on the backend.
This is the book that tells developers how to actually connect to the Heritage data silo/application that other books just draw a box around and say, "Connect somehow."
This book addresses that problem.
The first five chapters of this book provides an eye-opening overview for Management. The remaining seven chapters are for programmers.
What You'll Learn from the Book
Port FMS-based business applications to Intranet or Internet
applications using ACMS
How to connect to the Heritage data silo/application
Service Oriented Architecture principles
"With clearly defined examples and many diagrams and flow charts, this
370-page volume even has a source code CD. From a technical aspect, I could not have found a more
detailed explanation of ACMS and the innovative methods explained by Mr. Hughes. I
gave The Minimum You Need to Know (About Service Oriented Architecture) my highest rating of
A+ and recommend it to all the software geeks that could use more information on this subject."
William Phenn, Reader Reviews
"A precise overview of do-it-yourself SOA."
"I haven't done anything with SOA (yet), have little experience with Java
but enough to dislike it in normal life, and none with ACMS. Still, with this book, I am confident I can
create a well designed, well behaving and well working service on OpenVMS."
