WSO2 SOA Summer School Features Free Class on Building an Agile Architecture with Enterprise Middleware

Webinar-Based Training on June 17, 2010 Includes Lab Demonstrating Agile Practices with the WSO2 Carbon Lean Middleware Platform Mountain View, CA – June 14, 2010 – Running an agile business requires an equally agile IT architecture—one that can adapt and integrate processes and applications into existing and future systems as conditions demand. IT architects and developers can learn how to achieve this flexibility by attending the interactive online class, “Understanding Enterprise Middleware: Building an Agile Architecture.” The three-hour session is being offered at no cost as part of the WSO2 SOA Summer School program. It will be held on Thursday, June 17, at 9:00 a.m. Pacific.

Leading the class is Milinda Pathirage , WSO2 technical lead and product manager of the WSO2 Business Process Server. He will provide attendees an overview of best practices for achieving an agile architecture through a service-oriented architecture (SOA) and the holistic use of enterprise middleware, including such technologies as the enterprise service bus (ESB), Business Process Execution Language (BPEL), data services, and Web portals. Additionally, a lab session will take participants through the process of creating a new multi-faceted application using WSO2 Carbon, the award-winning lean middleware platform. The lab will include:

  • Writing a simple service using WS-* development tools.
  • Adding mediation to the service invocation.
  • Building a simple data service to execute create, read, update and delete (CRUD) operations against a database.
  • Using a registry/repository to store metadata and manage the services.
  • Executing a BPEL process for service orchestration.
  • Exposing the services securely to partners through a cloud gateway.
