One of the highlights of the conference was the book launch "Modern SOA Infrastructure: Technology, Design, and Governance" written by David Chappell, Thomas Erl, Mark Little, Brian Loesgen, Satadru Roy, Thomas Rischbeck, Arnaud Simon
The highlight of the conference was the SOA Manifesto presentation. From Oracle David Chappel and Clemens Utschig-Utschig contributed to the SOA Manifesto. Right after the launch we had the opportunity to talk to several of the authors who shared some insights with us.
If you like what you see, you are encouraged to become a signatory.
The simplicity and clear language in the manifesto was hard work. During the conference the team meet over 3 days. Key of SOA are the business benefits. The challenge was to reduce the more than 40 ideas for the SOA values to the final 6 values. In the second part of the SOA Manifesto focus on the guiding principles.
One of the key ideas was that you can not buy SOA, it is a result of hard architecture work. The goals of the manifesto are highly ambitions, high volume of website hits and the use in SOA RFIs.
The SOA community discussion acknowledges that the SOA Manifesto supports the SOA efforts and success. For more feedback on the SOA Manifesto please visit the following blogs of David Chappel, Clemens Utschig-Utschig, Hajo Normann & Mike van Alst.
