Presentation: "Lessons Learned While Building Scalable SOA"

Track:   Test and Profiling Performance

Time: Tuesday 13:00 - 14:00

Location: SAS Nortvegia

Abstract: The choices Web Service architects and developers make on XML handling libraries, Web Service encoding styles and binding utilities, and XML schema design and complexity, have a great impact on the scalability and performance of the deployed service. In this presentation, Frank Cohen will show the results of a recently completed research project that show the performance characteristics of three representative Web Service implementations on a variety of application servers, both commercial and open-source. Cohen will go further to describe the developer learning curve and productivity story encountered when building the implementations with a wide variety of tools. Cohen will give attendees a kit of the software, a performance test, and developer guide book that you can use in your own environment.
