Thought for the Day

"It's hard to read through a book on the principles of magic without glancing at the cover periodically to make sure it isn't a book on software design."
Bruce Tognazzini

Podcast Show Notes: Author Interview: Oracle Service Bus 11g Cookbook

Five Fusion Middleware developers walk into...

That may sound like the introduction to a joke, but in this case, those five Fusion Middleware developers walked into a collaborative project that resulted in the Oracle Service Bus 11g Cookbook, fresh off the presses from Packt Publishing.

The latest OTN ArchBeat Podcast features a conversation with those five Fusion Middleware experts (three of them members of the Oracle ACE program), in which they talk about why they wrote the book, what they learned in researching and writing the book, about how they divide their time between development and architecture, and a lot more.

And if that doesn't at least get you curious about the book, the authors have selected three of the book's 80 OSB recipes to present in a new OTN technical article, aptly titled Three Recipes for Oracle Service Bus 11g
