Overview of this book

Enterprise Architecture (EA) is typically an aggregate of the business, application, data, and infrastructure architectures of any forward-looking enterprise. Due to constant changes and rising complexities in the business and technology landscapes, producing sophisticated architectures is on the rise. Architectural patterns are gaining a lot of attention these days. The book is divided in three modules. You'll learn about the patterns associated with object-oriented, component-based, client-server, and cloud architectures. The second module covers Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) patterns and how they are architected using various tools and patterns. You will come across patterns for Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA), Event-Driven Architecture (EDA), Resource-Oriented Architecture (ROA), big data analytics architecture, and Microservices Architecture (MSA). The final module talks about advanced topics such as Docker containers, high performance, and reliable application architectures. The key takeaways include understanding what architectures are, why they're used, and how and where architecture, design, and integration patterns are being leveraged to build better and bigger systems.

SOA design patterns

In the current software design world, we already have time-tested software solutions for specific recurring problems. Best practices and the way that software design solves the repeatable problems in a quick and cost-effective manner creates reusable patterns over time, and it is a rule of thumb that we should be able to pick up and use the right ones for our design problems.

SOA deals with a number of design patterns, and numerous materials discuss each one in depth. We would like to touch upon a few of the most important ones that real-time software solutions often require.

We will deal with the following patterns in this chapter:

  • Service messaging
  • Message screening
  • Agnostic services
  • Atomic service transaction
  • Authentication broker
  • Message origin authentication
  • Service façade
  • Multiple service contracts
  • Service callback
  • Event-driven messaging
  • Service...
