SOA Design Patterns
I've been writing a book on SOA and ESB for a while with a couple of friends. It's due to be part of Thomas Erl's SOA series later this year. While writing it Thomas asked us to produce some patterns for his book on SOA. Well the finished book, SOA Design Patterns, is now out and it's well worth a read. A number of people throughout the industry have helped to contribute some of the patterns within it so this is definitely a cross-industry collaborative effort. Thomas also wants it to be a live-work in as much as new patterns can be contributed by anyone. So take a look at the book and if you see something missing consider contributing it. Many of the patterns are influenced by our work with the JBoss SOA Platform.
