Jim Webber on "Guerilla SOA"
In one of the most entertaining presentations on the topic ever, Dr. Jim Webber debunks myths about the mainstream ESB concept and explains how a lightweight approach can yield real benefits without giving in to vendor pressure. Jim claims that an ESB often ends up being just a thin veneer on an existing mess, and how an approach that doesn't put intelligence into the network is superior.
Dr. Jim Webber is the SOA Practice lead for ThoughtWorks, where he works on Web Services-based systems for clients worldwide. He has extensive Web Services architecture and development experience and was the lead developer with Hewlett-Packard on the industry's first Web Services Transaction solution. Jim is co-author of the book "Developing Enterprise Web Services - An Architect's Guide."
