About the Book
This is not your typical, dime-a-dozen SOA book.
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
"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."
