Adrenaline programing: implementing SOA and BPM in your application

Wieslaw Pilarczyk

Vdel Ltd.

After initial excitement about SOA, for many the time of disillusionment came, as SOA is often misunderstood. But not for all, some are already enjoying its advantages. Because the value of SOA is real, especially in combination with BPM, if properly understood. And its range is much wider in comparison with all other object, component and framework models, as it is conciliating the business and technological layers. This is not so easy to understand for a Java programmer, who is used to concrete, tangible and confined areas. But he must understand the context, otherwise many of his efforts can be futile. The aim of the presentation is to explain basic SOA and BPM ideas and make them approachable for a Java programmer by showing him a concrete business process example implemented with Java technologies.
