Online course from 2xSundblad

I’ve just looked through a part of the preview of the coming online course from 2xSundblad called Architecting Service Oriented Systems – Overview. It’s Flash-based with a mix of video, audio and slides. Looks very promising and it will be available for a very reasonable $399 (if you register your interest early you’ll even get ...

Web Services Software Factory, the solution to all our problems?

I just came back from a seminar on Web Service Software Factory (hereby referenced as WSSF), and I just cannot resit the urge to share my feelings on the subject. The presenter introduced WSSF as the solution to a lot of problems; Straggly Code Base since each dev/architect has his/her own way of building a ...

Documenting Web Services

I’m now trying to do what really should be very core to any enterprise that is serious about using SOA and web services – making sure that there is an easy way to document your services and to keep that documentation available and updated. Well, it has turned out to be much more painful than ...

Interface design in distributed solutions

The guys at thinktecture have released a quite interesting email conversation about Interface design in distributed solutions.

SOA: Sharing Schema AND Class

Usually, I am very much a strict SOA advocate. I really do believe in the principles of having loosely coupled, interface-based, self-contained services. But, that doesn’t mean that you’re not allowed to cut some corners once in awhile! One of the problems with doing SOA based development in .NET is the more or less lousy ...
