Over 100 recipes to get the best performance from your Oracle SOA Suite 11 g infrastructure
Featuring over 100 recipes, this handy cookbook will walk you through the different ways to optimize the performance of the Oracle SOA Suite 11g. Essential reading for administrators, developers, and architects.
* Tune the Java Virtual Machine to get the best out of the underlying platform
* more » Learn how to monitor and profile your Oracle SOA Suite applications
* Discover how to design and deploy your application for high-performance scenarios
* Identify and resolve performance bottlenecks in your Oracle SOA Suite infrastructure
Oracle SOA Suite 11g forms the heart of many organisations’ Service Oriented Architecture. Yet for such a core component, simple information on how to tune and configure SOA Suite and its infrastructure is hard to find. Because Oracle SOA Suite 11g builds on top of a variety of infrastructure components, up until now there has been no one single complete reference that brings together all the best practices for tuning the whole SOA stack.
Oracle SOA Suite 11g Performance Cookbook contains plenty of tips and tricks to help you get the best performance from your SOA Suite infrastructure. From monitoring your environment so you know where bottlenecks are, to tuning the Java Virtual Machine, WebLogic Application Server, and BPEL and BPMN mediator engines, this book will give you the techniques you need in a easy to follow step-by-step guide.
Starting with how to identify problems, and building on that with sections on monitoring, testing, and tuning, the recipes in this book will take you through many of the options available for performance tuning your application.
There are many considerations to make when trying to get the best performance out of the Oracle SOA Suite platform. This performance Cookbook will teach you the whole process of tuning JVM garbage collection and memory, tuning BPEL and BPMN persistence settings, and tuning the application server. This book focuses on bringing together tips on how to identify the key bottlenecks in the whole SOA Suite infrastructure, and how to alleviate them.
The Oracle SOA Suite 11g Performance Cookbook will ensure that you have the tools and techniques to get the most out of your infrastructure, delivering reliable, fast, and scalable services to your enterprise.

SOA Implementation Recipes, Tips, and Techniques
Java SOA Cookbook offers practical solutions and advice to programmers charged with implementing a service-oriented architecture (SOA) in their organization. Instead of providing another conceptual, high-level view of SOA, this cookbook shows you how to make SOA work. It's full of Java and XML code you more » can insert directly into your applications and recipes you can apply right away.
The book focuses primarily on the use of free and open source Java Web Services technologies -- including Java SE 6 and Java EE 5 tools -- but you'll find tips for using commercially available tools as well.
Java SOA Cookbook will help you:
* Construct XML vocabularies and data models appropriate to SOA applications
* Build real-world web services using the latest Java standards, including JAX-WS 2.1 and JAX-RS 1.0 for RESTful web services
* Integrate applications from popular service providers using SOAP, POX, and Atom
* Create service orchestrations with complete coverage of the WS-BPEL (Business Process Execution Language) 2.0 standard
* Improve the reliability of SOAP-based services with specifications such as WS-Reliable Messaging
* Deal with governance, interoperability, and quality-of-service issues
The recipes in Java SOA Cookbook will equip you with the knowledge you need to approach SOA as an integration challenge, not an obstacle. « less
Service Component Architecture
Use SCA to Simplify the Development and Delivery of Service-Based Applications
Service Component Architecture (SCA) is a new programming model that enables developers to build distributed applications more efficiently and effectively than previous technologies. In Understanding SCA (Service Component more » Architecture), two leading experts offer the first complete and independent guide to SCA. Drawing on extensive experience both developing the SCA standards and implementing large-scale SCA applications, Jim Marino and Michael Rowley provide an insider's perspective for developers and technical managers tasked with architecting and implementing enterprise systems. Rather than simply providing a technology overview, the authors draw on their practical experiences with SCA, explaining
* The full history behind SCA
* How SCA fits with other enterprise technologies such as JEE, .NET, Web Services, and BPEL
* All the major SCA concepts including composition, policy, wires, and bindings
* Best practices for designing SCA applications
* Using SCA with Web Services, Message-Oriented Middleware, BPEL, JPA, and Servlets
Understanding SCA (Service Component Architecture) provides the background necessary to make informed decisions about when and how to best use SCA to build enterprise applications. « less
