Oracle SOA Governance 11g Implementation

Book description

Being able to implement SOA governance competently can make a huge difference to your organization’s efficiency. This guide shows you how through a complete practical course based on Oracle’s highly regarded software suite.

  • Understand SOA governance including its key concepts, goals, and objectives, and how to implement these using the Oracle SOA Governance Suite
  • Execute an SOA maturity assessment in order to capture the SOA governance challenges specific to your organization
  • Implement Oracle Enterprise Repository (OER) and Oracle Service Registry (OSR) to address your organization’s SOA governance design-time and runtime requirements

In Detail

Service-oriented Architecture (SOA) is an architectural style created to address the challenges posed by today’s highly distributed, fast-paced computing. This goal is achieved by constructing business-focused software systems from loosely coupled, interoperable building blocks called Services. Organizations often fail to successfully implement SOA due to a lack of effective governance. Oracle SOA Governance is a comprehensive, service-orientated architecture governance solution that is designed to make the transition to SOA easier.

"Oracle SOA Governance 11g Implementation" illustrates how to successfully implement SOA governance in your organization. To achieve this, we describe how goals and objectives need to be clearly laid out and used to align governance processes with governance tools, governance tools with people, and people with the different roles and responsibilities that are required to implement effective governance.

"Oracle SOA Governance 11g Implementation" begins with a short but concise overview of SOA governance. We then go to explore real world examples, based on previous experiences and working solutions, in order to learn the concepts of Oracle SOA Governance Suite.

We will also learn how to implement an OER-centric SDLC process to address your organizations design-time governance requirements. Next, we will explore OSR, and discover how to use it to expose service implementations to consumers based on UDDI concepts. We will explore the features available within Web Service Manager (WSM), Oracle Enterprise Manager (OEM), and Business Transaction Manager (BTM). Finally, we discover how OER can be extended to govern Oracle Application Integration Architecture (AIA) implementations.

Discover and learn how to use Oracle SOA Governance Suite to address your specific design-time and runtime governance challenges.
