Free eBook on SOA

It’s nice to get back from vacation and have a blog post practically fall into your lap. It makes getting back into the groove just a little bit easier (OK; this still doesn’t beat the beach). Anyway, the folks at Pearson (publisher of Mashup Patterns) have just let me know they’ve put together a free eBook on SOA.

It’s a composite, made of chapters from eight popular books by authors including Thomas Erl, Sandy Carter, and myself. The full list follows:

  • “SOA Design Patterns” by Thomas Erl with additional contributors;
  • “SOA: Principles of Service Design” by Thomas Erl;
  • “Web Service Contract Design & Versioning for SOA” by Thomas Erl, Anish Karmarkar, Priscilla Walmsley, Hugo Haas, L. Umit Yalcinalp, Kevin Liu, David Orchard, Andre Tost, James Pasley;
  • “Service-Oriented Architecture: Concepts, Technology, and Design” by Thomas Erl;
  • “The New Language of Business: SOA & Web 2.0” by Sandy Carter;
  • “Mashup Patterns: Designs and Examples for the Modern Enterprise ” by Mike Ogrinz;
  • “Executing SOA” by Norbert Bieberstein, Robert G. Laird, Keith Jones, Tilak Mitra;
  • “SOA Governance” by William A. Brown, Robert G. Laird, Clive Gee, Tilak Mitra

To get the eBook, just visit www.informit.com/learnsoa. All you need to provide is an email address (really!) It’s a great way to start wading into the SOA and mashup waters
