SOA (Service Oriented Architecture) is hype. According to Gartner, by 2008, SOA will provide the basis for 80% of development projects. However, we see all the effects of a hype of a very new topic. Especially, there is not even a common understanding about the core terms such as "SOA" and "service".
In this tutorial, Nicolai Josuttis tries to separate the SOA hype from reality. As a team leader of the realization of a SOA at a world-wide mobile phone company with a heterogeneous infrastructure, about 30 service participants, and about 300 services in production, he knows about the big difference between was is being said and promised about SOA and what it means in practice to run a SOA in a large and heterogeneous environment.
Starting with a clarification and classification of the fundamental SOA concepts, he will present all the steps of bringing SOA into production. Facts and knowledge based on a broad understanding of large and distributed systems spiced with important aspects based on his experience.
Note that this tutorial covers the concepts and isn't just a tutorial about WebServices (although there is a lot to say about WebSerives as a preferred SOA implementation strategy).
