Session Type: Professional Development
Numerous new toolsets and products are available to facilitate the transition to an SOA-based architecture. Examples are IDEs for the rapid deployment of web services, middleware infrastructure such as enterprise service bus solutions, and new application servers such as GlassFish by Sun. This panel presentation will feature practical applications of SOA concepts in higher education, including the Kuali Project and other multi-institution software implementations that require standardized, flexible, reusable interfaces. Panelists will discuss the strategies behind their SOA efforts, as well as their experiences in using the first wave of open-source and vendor-supported "pro-SOA" offerings in the marketplace.
