SOA Design Antipatterns ( 1st Edition written by Ms. Deepali Tripathi ) ISBN: 9789353219154 or Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) is the de-facto architectural approach for many IT initiatives. It is therefore important to understand the circumstances where this paradigm breaks, as this can significantly impact the delivery of IT programs. This research hand book highlights SOA antipatterns that define problems & conclusions that can occur in the execution of SOA deliveries. A simple frame of reference for SOA is first introduced in the form of a layered reference architecture. The reference architecture is then used to illustrate the underlying reasons for the occurrence of the antipatterns. For each antipattern a description is provided that highlights the root causes of the problem and the approaches to re-factoring the solution, hence facilitating successful delivery. Author explains & goes over some of the most egregious and thorny antipatterns based on his Research, Experiences in the industry and discussions with other SOA thought leaders. The purpose of patterns is to define how systems should be built in repeatable ways; the purpose of anti-patterns is to help you see when that hasn’t been done. In depth analysis of the subject in the form of description, effect cause & Conclusions.
