Giovani Salvador: Java, SOA and XML

Java, SOA and XML

Posted by giovanisalvador on July 27, 2008 at 3:32 PM PDT

I have been involved in SOA (Service Oriented Architecture) projects and also studying a lot all the aspects of the SOA world. It is interesting that I thought that I knew SOA before working effectively with SOA. More specifically, I thought my knowledge on XML parsing (of course, using a JAXP implementation) would be sufficient to say that I really know XML.

For example, when we think of an XML document we usually think of something like this:

<customer>        <address>                <zipcode>123</zipcode>                …        </address>        <address>                <zipcode>321</zipcode>                …        </address></customer>

and not this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><definitions xmlns=""         xmlns:wsdl=""        xmlns:soap=""        xmlns:tns=""        xmlns:xsd="" name="SyncBusiness"        targetNamespace="">        <types>                <xsd:schema targetNamespace=""                         xmlns:xs=""                        xmlns:order="">                        <xs:import namespace="" schemaLocation="./order.xsd" />                        <xsd:element name="submitOrderResponse" type="order:Order" />                        <xsd:element name="submitOrder" type="order:Order" />                </xsd:schema>        </types>        <message name="submitOrderResponse">        ...        </message>        <portType name="SyncBusiness">        ...        </portType>        <binding name="SyncBusinessSOAP" type="tns:SyncBusiness">                <soap:binding style="document"                        transport="" />                <operation name="submitOrder">                ...                </operation>        </binding>        <service name="SyncBusiness">                <port binding="tns:SyncBusinessSOAP"                        name="SyncBusinessSOAP">                        ....                </port>        </service></definitions>

But when you get involved with SOA using an ESB (Enterprise Service Bus) implementation you start to deal with a world you typically have not any involvement.




I am a technology and business consultant who provides state of the art software design services to rapidly growing and mature organizations using cutting edge technologies. Information Technology Professional with over 20 years of industry experience as a Software Architect/Lead Developer and Project Management Coach using service oriented (SOA/EIB) view of the software development process (Use Case/Story View, Class Design View, Database Design View, and Infrastructure View) and software design (Model-View-Controller based (MVC pattern/framework)). Coached PMs on various aspects of task and resource management and requirements tracking and tracing, and even filled in for PMs. Led teams of varying sizes mainly from the architect viewpoint: translating non-technical requirements into concrete, technical components and work units, identifying and creating reusable frameworks and design patterns, creating skeletal IDE projects with MVC wiring and config files, assigning app tiers or horizontal components to developers, making sure test team members have use cases and other work unit inputs to create an executable test/quality assurance plan, organizing meetings, ensuring enterprise standards and practices are adhered to, enforcing any regulatory and security compliance traceable from requirements/Solution Architecture Documents (SADs) all the way down to core classes in code, and so on Expertise includes designing and developing object-oriented, service/component-based software systems that are robust, high-performance and flexible for multiple platforms. Areas of specialization include Internet (business-to-business and business-to-consumer) e-commerce and workflow using Microsoft.NET technologies (up to current Visual Studio 2010/.Net Framework 4.0, MVC3/Razor View Engine, LINQ), TFS, Sharepoint 2007 (Task Mgmt, Build Script), Commerce Server 2007/2002 (basket and order pipeline), ASP.NET, ADO.NET, C#, Visual C++, Visual Basic.NET) and Java EE/J2EE, service oriented architecture (SOA) and messaging (MSMQ, MQSeries, SAP message handling) and more abstract enterprise service bus (ESB) designs, best patterns and practices, telecommunications and the offline processes of the enterprise. Provide detail estimates on budgets, guided design and development tasks with offshore teams, technical assessments of third party software tools and vendor selections, project/iteration planning and spring product backlogs, and level of effort for statements of work (including for offshore based development teams), including executive summary presentations as needed.
