As part of the SOA Symposium I was excited to watch the release of the latest Prentice Hall title, SOA Design Patterns by Thomas Erl. This is a large effort and I was fortunate to be asked by Thomas to participate in a contributing author capacity. Over 80+ patterns are outlined and include many of the speakers at the SOA Symposium. It is good to see such cooperation and the development of more independent material for the international audience. Some of the patterns are available at www.soapatterns.org which will be updated to match the book as well as candidate design patterns.
Another title that I am very interested in reviewing is also another Prentice Hall title, Web Service Contract Design & Versioning for SOA.
