Most organizations that have tried have been successful in implementing a pliable Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) paradigm. Analysts have come out with strategies to translate existing applications into SOA-compliant systems using a staggered approach. The rewards reaped come in the form of low-cost maintenance and agility in their business, along with reusable and self-contained services. But there are still challenges in this form of service-based architecture and solutions need to be devised. One of the biggest hurdles has been coordinating technology-agnostic services into a single long-running unit of work that produces predictable results. The transactions running across multiple services over multiple domains need to be synchronized to maintain business integrity. Currently organizations depend on proprietary solutions to coordinate transactions for data ... (more)

XML Binding Frameworks in the Context of Service-Oriented Architecture

This article critically evaluates the role of XML binding frameworks play in the context of service-oriented architecture (SOA) platforms, and it also provides an objective evaluation of the popular XML binding frameworks in a J2EE environment. XML binding refers to the mapping of XML documents to/from any suitable internal representation (e.g., object-based representation) that is understandable by the underlying system, and in the process facilitating easy and intuitive access to the data in XML documents. In a J2EE context, this translates to an easier and logically meaningfu... (more)

Load Testing Web Services

The quality of any application is determined by the robustness and scalability of the system. It's mandatory to simulate the actual environment and test the application for preparedness. Web Services-savvy applications need a different methodology for testing in a real-world scenario. The UI-less nature of Web Services presents a significant challenge in testing such applications. The whole persona of consumer stubs with different payloads dictates the planning of Web Services load-testing schemes. This paper talks about the different aspects of load testing and areas of conten... (more)

Enabling Offline SOA Using SDO and ADO.NET

Enterprises frequently have to deal with part of their infrastructure that doesn't have the privilege of uninterrupted connectivity. Such system environments designed using Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) need a way to manage uncertain connectivity. SOA as an architectural paradigm depends on a set of services providing business functionality. These services may be distributed over different domains or geographical boundaries. SOA, characterized by independent and self-sufficient services primarily needs to handle the issue of data inconsistency that may result from a disconn... (more)
