WSO2 kicks off free Summer School with class on SOA enterprise architecture best practices

First Session Gives IT Architects and Developers Insight into How SOA Patterns Map to Business Requirements

Mountain View, CA – June 15, 2009 – IT architects and developers who want to understand how service-oriented architecture (SOA) patterns map to different business requirements—along with best implementation practices—are invited to attend “SOA Enterprise Architecture Patterns”. This interactive, online class is being offered at no cost as part of the WSO2 SOA Summer School program. It will be held on Thursday, June 18, 2009 at 9:00 a.m. Pacific.

The two-hour SOA Enterprise Architecture Patterns class will provide an introduction to solution-building with enterprise architecture patterns. A review of three SOA use-cases will offer an in-depth discussion of the business requirements, the systems in place, and the implementation approach for each example. Attendees also will learn about the role of core SOA components, including the registry/repository and enterprise service bus, as well as enhancements, such as a shared repository, lifecycles, clustering, configuration, management, monitoring. The course will be taught by Asanka Abeysinghe, WSO2 architect, who also developed the class content.
