Podcast Show Notes: SOA and Cloud - Where's This Relationship Going?

Opinions vary on the relationship between service oriented architecture and cloud computing. Some say SOA is essential to the cloud. Others say cloud is entirely possible without SOA. In this three-part program three members of the Masons of SOA, the group behind the Industrial SOA article series, offer their insight into the issue.

The Conversation

  • Listen to Part 1 (program #244): What is the relationship between SOA and Cloud Computing? How is that relationship changing? Is the Cloud changing SOA?
  • Listen to Part 2 (program #245) [available April 24] : What effect does the ease of acquiring services in the cloud have on the existence of development silos? What role can SOA principles play in bridging those silos?
  • Listen to Part 3 (program #246) [available May 1]: Many services suffer from poor architecture, say these experts. There is a better way.

ArchBeat Link-o-Rama Top 10 for the week of January 13-20, 2013

Here's the list of the Top 10 items posted on the OTN ArchBeat Facebook Page for the week of January 13-20, 2013.

  1. Architect Poll: What's Your Title?
    It has been my observation that among the participants at OTN Architect Day events only about 30% have titles or are in roles that include the word "architect." Does the same hold true for followers of this page? Let's find out. Does your role, title, or job description include the word "architect?"
  2. Automate WebLogic Installation and Configuration | René van Wijk
    Oracle ACE René van Wijk's example uses JRockit, WebLogic Server, Oracle Service Bus, and the Repository Creation Utility to illustrate how to create automation scripts for setting up middleware environments.
  3. How To Implement a Gapless Sequence in ADF BC | Andrejus Baranovskis
    "We all know how to insert new records using ADF BC," says Oracle ACE Director Andrejus Baranovskis. "But if you have a sequence in the DB for a primary key attribute and there is a requirement to make sure assigned sequence values are always gapless - few extra steps are needed." Don't worry, Andrejus shows you how in this post.
  4. Oracle Fusion Middleware Partner Community Forum 2013 | Guido Schmutz
    Oracle ACE Director Guido Schmutz met the co-authors for his OSB cookbook at the Oracle Fusion Middleware Partner Community Forum in 2011. What might develop when you expand your network at this year's event in Faro, Portugal, February 19-20, 2013. You're going, right? Right?
  5. WebLogic Server 12c: Distinctive Recipes (Architecture, Development and Administration) | Dr. Frank Munz
    WebLogic Server 12c: Distinctive Recipes (Architecture, Development and Administration) is the follow-up to Dr. Frank Munz's 2012 book Middleware and Cloud Computing.
  6. Podcast: ACE in the Whole -- An inside look at the Oracle ACE program
    Oracle ACE program manager Vikki Lira shares background information on the program, and program members Debra Lilley, Alex Gorbachev, and Tim Hall talk about how and why they became Oracle ACE Directors.
  7. Oracle Linux 5.9 | Wim Coekaerts
    Wim Coekaerts' brief post has information on where you can get the latest release of Oracle Linux.
  8. Oracle Enterprise Manager at Collaborate13 | Joe Diemer
    If you're attending Collaborate 13 in April and you're interested in Oracle Enterprise Manager, you'll find Joe Diemer's extensive list of OEM sessions at Collaborate very useful indeed.
  9. "GlassFish for Business" Updates - GlassFish 3.1.2 and 2.1.1 Patch Releases | The Aquarium
    "You might consider these releases minor," says Reza Rahman, "but to operations they're the crucial ones - highly compatibles with timely fixes (some of which came as a result of customer escalations)."
  10. Roadmaps and Guardrails
    IT governance is a touchy subject. Few architects would argue the importance of at least some form of governance, so why did five minutes of research on Google Trends confirm that interest in IT governance has steadily declined since 2004?

ArchBeat Link-o-Rama for November 8, 2012

Thought for the Day

"(When) asking skilled architects…what they do when confronted with highly complex problems…(they) would most likely answer, 'Just use Common Sense.' (A) better expression than 'common sense' is 'contextual sense' — a knowledge of what is reasonable within a given content. Practicing architects through eduction, experience and examples accumulate a considerable body of contextual sense by the time they're entrusted with solving a system-level problem…"
