SOA Patterns

There’s a lot of material and guidance on the Service Orientation (SO of SOA) and the business aspects of SOA, There are even few books on low-level design patterns for SOA but the Architecture (the A of SOA) is regrettably somewhat neglected. The SOA patterns book aims to fill this gap and includes 26 patterns and 4 anti-patterns that are useful for building and designing real-world SOAs.

This site includes a short description of all the patterns and anti-patterns, and it serves as quick-ref for the book. You can also find here drafts of several of the patterns and links to the free chapters (chapters 1 and 10) which are available on Manning’s site. You can order the book on Manning’s site mentioned above as well as Amazon or Barnes & Noble
