Service-Oriented Architecture Technology Options

About this curriculum


This curriculum is composed of four courses:

1. 2. 3. 4.

(SW713) The Value of Implementing a Service-Oriented Architecture (SW714) IBM Assets for Service-Oriented Architecture Assessments (SW715) Principles and Patterns for Service-Oriented Architecture Solutions (SW716) Service-Oriented Architecture Technology Options

You are about to take SW716, Service-Oriented Architecture Technology Options. We recommend that you take the courses in the order listed above. It is possible to take SW716 as a standalone unit assuming you have knowledge of the basic concepts in a service-oriented architecture (SOA), including the motivation and benefits for using service-oriented architecture (SOA) in an enterprise. You should be able to describe the three basic Web service specifications: Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP), Web Services Description Language (WSDL), and Universal Description, Discovery, and Integration (UDDI). You should also be familiar with core XML standards used in Web services, such as XML schema and namespace. About links All links have been verified as active at the time of publication of this course. Duration This is a self-directed and self-paced course, so the time required to complete it depends upon your reading speed and how many modules you complete. Each lecture usually takes between thirty and forty-five minutes to read. Completing the quiz for each module may take another two or three minutes. Therefore, you can allow an average of forty-five minutes for each module. One benefit of a self-paced training course is that you can take it a portion at a time. Allocating some time each day for a week may be a more effective approach than setting aside an entire day to complete this course. Feedback Before you leave this course, please help us evaluate the course. Click the Course Evaluation Form link in the navigation panel when you are connected to the Internet to open a form on the WebSphere Training and Technical Enablement (WTTE) Web site. Submitting the form automatically sends your feedback to a WTTE mailbox. WTTE greatly appreciates your comments and suggestions. Return your evaluation even if you complete only part of the course and tell whether the modules you completed met your expectations.
