SOA Acronyms

The more I read about SOA related topics, the more buzz words and acronyms I encounter. I therefore decided to try to list these and to share them here.

Disclaim: Due to their plethoric number, all acronyms won’t necessarily be covered by this list or one meaning could have been missed. I will be more then pleased to add anybody's participation if I receive a correction/addition with the source(s) where it can be found.

Enterprise Service Bus

ESB Has been the focus of my interest (maybe even a bit too much) recently. I will try to keep up to date with its actuallity (yes ESB are still being looked at) and list here the most interesting materials I've found.

- brief introduction on the topic on wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enterprise_service_bus).

- practical and concise book: Enterprise Service Bus from David A. Chapell (http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/esb/index.html).

Catching up

I have been mostly reading for the past three months (papers, technical reports and books).

Here is a list of part of what I've read thus far, I'll try to keep that up to date.


My colleague Jake lists his readings as well (Here).
