Service-oriented architecture (SOA) has quickly taken center stage as the primary development style of the next decade and beyond. Businesses of all types are preparing for the SOA revolution that promises consistency of process, reduction in duplicate work, ease of maintenance, service reusability, and broad interoperability. The Web Services Framework (WSF) is the foundation that can deliver on the promise of SOA. Come learn about the components of an SOA including the core WSF standards. Attend this free Novell tutorial and learn about the future of SOA-style development, including legacy system enablement, platform interoperability, open source in SOA, and building composite applications that leverage SOA services using Novell exteNd. In this session we will create SOA application logic that orchestrates legacy services, JBoss4 Web services and MS.Net Web services. We will create Web services in Novell exteNd, Eclipse, and Visual Studio respectively. We will then orchestrate these Web services and expose a single course, process-level interface to public Web service consumers. Finally, we will create multiple service consumers in Novell exteNd and Macromedia Flash.
