Praise for Understanding SOA with Web Services
"This book does the best job of describing not only "where we are" in the timeline of enterprise integration efforts, but also providing strategic guidance for where we need to be. The authors have worked diligently to break down the integration problem into functional areas, and send you down the path of strategic integration utilizing XML Web Services and Service-Oriented Architecture as the vehicle of choice. You will love this book!"
—Daniel Edgar, Architect, Portland General Electric
"E-Government needs a comprehensive guide to SOA with Web Services standards and best practices for implementation to get from the current "as is" to the future "to be" architecture. This book meets that need superbly."
—Brand Niemann, Ph.D., Co-Chair, Semantic (Web Services) Interoperability Community of Practice, U.S. Federal CIO Council.
"There are many books on SOA available today, but Understanding SOA with Web Services stands out from the pack because of its thorough, outstanding coverage of transactions, reliability, and process. Where most SOA books focus on integration and architecture basics, Lomow and Newcomer fearlessly dive into these more advanced, yet critical, topics, and provide a depth of treatment unavailable anywhere else."
—Jason Bloomberg, Senior Analyst, ZapThink LLC
"This book provides a wealth of content on Web Services and SOA not found elsewhere. Although the book is technical in nature, it is surprisingly easy to read and digest. Managers who would like to keep up with the most effective technical strategies will find this book required reading."
—Hari Mailvaganam, University of British Columbia, Vancouver
"I have been teaching companies and lecturing on SOA and XML Web Services for years and sort of felt at home with these technologies. I didn't think anyone else could teach me anything more significant about either of them. This book surprised me. If a person teaching SOA and Web Services can learn something from this book, you can too. This book is a must-read for all architects, senior developers, and concerned CTOs."
—Sayed Y. Hashimi, SOA Consultant
"Newcomer and Lomow are no doubt the industry luminaries on the topics of Web Services, Service-Oriented Architecture, and integration. This book is sure to be a must-have for developers and architects looking to take advantage of the coming wave of standards-based, loosely coupled integration."
—Ronald Schmelzer, Senior Analyst,
Author of XML and Web Services Unleashed (Sams, 2002)
"The author makes it quite clear: SOA is an organizational principle and Web Service technology is a means to realize enterprise solutions according to this. SOA is the federative concept of nature and efficient societies. The book is an excellent starting-point to discover the new world of an IT-infrastructure adjusted to efficient business strategies and processes in a global value-add network."
—Johann Wagner, Senior Architect, Siemens Business Services Author of Föderative Unternehmensprozesse
"Finally, here's a third-generation Web services book that delivers pragmatic solutions using SOAs. Newcomer and Lomow draw from their years of real-world experience ranging from developing Web services standards to hands-on applications. Listen to them."
—DOUG KAYE, author of Loosely

Along the way, they present specific approaches and solutions for a wide range of enterprise integration and development challenges, including the largest and most complex.
Why SOA has emerged as the dominant approach to enterprise integration
How and why Web services provide the ideal foundation for SOA
Underlying concepts shared by all SOAs: governance, service contracts, Web services platforms, service-oriented development, and more
Implementing service-level communications, discovery, security, data handling, transaction management, and system management
Using SOA to deliver application interoperability, multichannel client access, and business process management
Practical tutorials on WS-Security, WS-Reliable Messaging, WS-AtomicTransactions, WS-Composite Application Framework, WS-Addressing, WS-Policy, and WS-BPEL
