SOA Boot Camp: Day 2
Day 2 - Today we covered more of the advanced WS-Specs and what it means to distribute a loosely coupled systems across a network. The focus was on 'creating a virtual application' by using "RST" (reliability, security and transactional integrity).
Most of knew this stuff already so we started the 'Requirements Analysis' workflow early. The first step focused on what has changed in capturing business stakeholder requirements (processes, collaborations, interactions, etc.) The second half focused on the changes in specifying a software system (candidate services, enterprise concerns, etc.) One thing that we all agreed on is that the requirements stage has significantly changed and that we need a specialized course. We landed on "SOA for Business Analysts" which will update the RUP concepts (Vision Document, Use Cases, etc.) with more up-to-date techniques.
