SOA Resources

On the same morning I read that there’s a pending “drought” of architects who really “get” SOA and can sell it to the business, I see a great SOA reading list from Loosely Coupled Thinking. I’ve also spent a bit of time recently re-reading some of the old MS Architect Journal issues(issue 2, and issue 8 have some stand-out material). Reading volumes of whitepapers doesn’t make someone a good architect, but combine that with implementation experience and diversity of ideas and you’re on the right track. Of course, since I don’t work for Microsoft anymore, I can stop being such a MS homer, so what are your favorite non-MS authored architecture/SOA resources that everyone should bookmark?

  1. No links as such but a couple of good books are “Service Oriented Architecture and Design” by Thomas Erl, “Understanding SOA with web services” by Eric Newcomer and “Enterprise SOA” by Drik Krafzig et al. The last one discusses some SAP ESA specific stuff but its still good reading. I also like the OASIS SOA Blueprint material for which MS released a reference implementation a while ago.
