1.1 About this Book generate, create barcode standards 128 none in .net projects Visual Basic Documenting the intersection Code 128 Code Set A for .NET between the technology capabilities of a vendor productbased platform and the demands and requirements of the service-orientation design paradigm is always an interesting exercise. You find yourself exploring parts of the platform that go well beyond those labeled with the word service to discover strengths and weaknesses that have a direct bearing on the potential to realize the very specific goals associated with service-oriented computing.

The body of work provided in this book is the result of a three-year study of Microsoft platform technologies in relation to service-orientation. I was fortunate to work with authors and contributors (most with Microsoft) who collaborated and advanced the study at different intervals, each providing individual expertise and insights. The use of design principles and patterns in this book proved especially helpful.

Because each principle or pattern had been previously well-defined and documented in detail, there was no room for interpretation with its application to or comparison with Microsoft technologies. One of the greatest revelations of this effort was the variety of options you have when working with Microsoft technologies. I had an initial expectation that we would be documenting very specific combinations of products and technologies for building serviceoriented solutions and service-oriented technology architecture implementations.

It turns out that there are many choices, each with its own set of pros and cons. This type of diversity is important, as it can help you create and optimize individual services differently and independently, while still remaining within the same overall technology platform. As you dive into the many topics covered by this book, I encourage you to keep the big picture in mind.

Building services as units of service-oriented logic is about shaping. 1.2 Objectives of this Book software programs in a speci Code 128 Code Set A for .NET fic way in support of achieving a specific target state. That target state is the big picture.

The ultimate goal is for your services to collectively establish an environment that is naturally responsive to on-going business change. Finally, another important consideration is that the big picture doesn t always have to be big. The scope in which you choose to apply service-orientation can vary from a modest segment within the IT enterprise to an entire business domain and beyond.

As stated in the SOA Manifesto: Keep efforts manageable and within meaningful boundaries. The definition of those boundaries is up to you, based on what you can realistically manage. These factors will further influence how you choose to assemble service-oriented technology environments using Microsoft technologies.

Having them in the back of your mind as you study the upcoming chapters will give you a constant context and also some baseline criteria as you consider each technology option in relation to service-orientation and your unique business objectives and requirements.. NOTE The annotated version of the SOA Manifesto is published in Appendix E. 1.2 Objectives of this Book Collectively, these chapters code128b for .NET were written with the following primary goals in mind: to provide coverage of contemporary Microsoft distributed technologies and modern service technologies to explain how Microsoft cloud computing technologies and platforms can be leveraged by service-oriented technology architectures to document the application of service-orientation principles to the Microsoft technology platform to explore the application of SOA design patterns to various .NET and Azure technologies and solutions built with these technologies to provide coverage of Microsoft infrastructure extensions and administration tools relevant to service-oriented solution deployment and governance.
