Sebastopol, CA - March 10, 2009
Safari® Books Online (www.safaribooksonline.com), the leading on-demand digital library and a joint venture between O’Reilly Media Inc. and Pearson Education, announced today that it is hosting a complimentary webcast on Thursday, March 26 at 10:30 a.m. PST with Thomas Erl, author of SOA Design Patterns.
Free registration for the event is available by visiting this Website. All webcast attendees will receive 45 days of complimentary access to SOA Design Patterns on Safari Books Online.
The best-selling SOA Design Patterns provides a catalog of 85 patterns that document a range of proven techniques and practices for service-oriented architecture and service-orientation. The book underwent a three-year development process, during which it was comprehensively reviewed by hundreds of industry professionals and many of the world’s leading technology companies.
During the webcast, Erl will discuss some of the most important SOA design patterns in use today and will reference relevant design principles covered by his previous title, SOA Principles of Service Design and related technologies covered in the recently released Web Service Contract Design & Versioning for SOA. Erl also will highlight some of the contributions made to the SOAPatterns.org community site.
"The emerging dominant architectural style for many enterprise systems is service-oriented architecture, and Thomas' work is the right book at the right time. It's comprehensive and written in a very accessible pattern language. Thomas covers not just the technical details, but also sets these patterns in the context of economic and other considerations. SOA Design Patterns is an important contribution to the literature and practice of building and delivering quality software-intensive systems," said Grady Booch, IBM Fellow, as written in the book's foreword.
