WSO2 Summer School features free class on bridging the divide between C++ and SOA systems

Class Provides IT Architects and Developers Techniques for Integrating Enterprise Applications Based on C++ into an SOA

Mountain View, CA – July 27, 2009 – C++ remains one of the most popular languages for developing high-performance business applications across multiple platforms. However, service-oriented architecture (SOA) solutions have been predominantly based on Java. Bridging that divide to combine the performance of C++ applications with the agility of SOAs can be a game changer for many enterprises.

IT architects and developers who are interested in learning how to integrate C++ applications into their SOAs are invited to attend “C++ in SOA.” 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, July 30, 2009 at 9:00 a.m. Pacific.

The two-hour “C++ in SOA” class will provide an introduction to implementing Web services with C++, including the concepts around contract-first development, working with the Web Services Description Language (WSDL), code generation, and REST-style architectures. The session also will explain techniques for interoperating in heterogeneous environments, such as those using Java and Microsoft .NET. Additionally attendees will learn about reliable messaging; how to send, receive and cache attachments; and how to ensure the security of enterprise Web services.

The C++ in SOA course will be taught by Nandika Jayawardena, the WSO2 WSF/C++ product leader, who also developed the class content. Hear Nandika share his insights on integrating C++ in an SOA system on a preview podcast available at
