Part I – “Setting the Stage” – introduces the case of Saibot Airport and the business and IT challenges it faces. The path the airport has laid down for itself in order to create its future and the IT architecture and technology it has selected is discussed along with the core concepts that make up Service-Oriented Architecture. The history of Oracle Fusion Middleware is described as well as its current status. The focus then moves to a detailed overview of SOA Suite 12c, its main constituents and closely associated products such as Managed File Transfer, API Catalog, API Manager, B2B and Healthcare. This part concludes with a very quick start-up instruction which includes the installation of SOA Suite 12c development environment, ready for the creation and deployment of the HelloWorld equivalent in SOA applications.
This chapter introduces Saibot Airport as an organization with a vision and a business strategy, and one that depends heavily on IT to fulfill the strategy. The IT department itself is confronted by changing industry trends, new technology and an evolution in the way it organizes its processes. From all of these, architecture consequences are derived. And finally, technology products have to be selected to start the realization of the information and application architecture designed to enable the IT and business objectives.
