Top 10 Most Popular OTN SOA Articles

Service-oriented architecture has been a hot topic of late given the recent release Oracle SOA Suite 12.1.3 and related products. Against that backdrop I thought it would be interesting to do a little data diving to see which OTN technical articles on SOA were the most popular over the last 30 days.

The criteria were basic: any article currently available in the OTN SOA articles directory was eligible, and the list is based on total unique visits between June 11, 2014 and July 10, 2014.

Congratulations to the authors! And note that members of the Oracle ACE Program are very well-represented in this list.

Top 10 Architect Community Articles for May 2014

One of the things I get to do as an OTN community manager is work with members of the architect community who want to spend extra time pounding the keyboard and risking carpal tunnel syndrome to publish articles on OTN. These articles typically cover—but are not limited to—middleware technologies (the other OTN community managers cover other technologies and product areas).

Naturally, we track the popularity of these articles and use that information to help guide editorial decisions about the many article submissions we get. The list below represents the Top 10 most popular architect community articles for May 2014.

(This list reflects only articles published between June 1, 2013 and May 31, 2014.)
