Hey, this is sort of neat. SOA Cookbook went into Rough Cuts today on O'Reilly's web site. The first 630 pages of my new book are available at:
There's a lot to finish up. I am completing the ESB chapter now, and still have the security chapter to write. These should be done in the next couple of weeks, along with some additions to the REST chapter I need to make.
All in all, I'm expecting the book to come in around 700 pages. Aimed at architects and developers, it covers XML Schema and Data Models, Service Oriented Architecture principles and governance, has a two big chapters on BPEL 2.0, and covers ESB, and REST. But the main focus of the book is using JAX-WS 2.1 with open source (and some commercial) tools to create SOAP-based web services Java SE 6 and Java EE 5.
The published hard copy of the complete book should be in stores in March of 2009, just at the same time that 97 Things Every Software Architect Should Know will be out.
Remember that this is an unedited draft. I have tried to be careful, but it's a Rough Cut and there will be little mistakes. I hope that you check it out and enjoy it!
