Developing in a Service-oriented World
Gregor Hohpe debunks many unrealistic claims about SOA and addresses the technical issues, such as the false sense of simplicity, differences to established programming models and the importance of documentation. He also criticizes what he calls "Doodleware", i.e. tools that aim to hide complexity behind a graphical process model notation, and suggests deriving models from running systems.
Gregor Hohpe is a software architect at Google, author of Enterprise Integration Patterns and a frequent speaker at conferences around the world.
