Oracle SOA Suite 11g: Essential Concepts

Description: This course introduces participants to Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) concepts, the SOA approach to integration, and the Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g R3 products that support an SOA implementation. The course discusses the core SOA service components, and how to use them to compose a SOA application using Oracle SOA suite to address real world business challenges. Using an order management business process as the scenario, participants learn how a SOA approach can be implemented whether starting fresh with new services or reusing existing services provided by the business. Using Oracle SOA Suite 11g, participants explore, modify, execute and monitor an order-processing composite application implemented using a SOA approach.Learn To:Describe SOA conceptsEvaluate the Oracle SOA Suite for use in your organizationsExplain how SOA composite applications are implemented in Oracle SOA Suite 11gBenefits to You:Learn how to integrate your organization's applications into agile, reusable, service-based connectivity to reduce risk and respond faster to business requirements.
