Service-oriented architectures comprise an important standard-based and technology-independent solution kit component for modern Web- and Cloud software development. SOA as a paradigm for distributed computing and the basis of modern distributed software carries a variety of benefits. Thus, there exist numerous architectural styles for identification, use, interconnection, implementation and dissemination of loosely-coupled software services and those accessible over the Internet or Web. The module presents basic approaches, concepts, technologies, protocols an principles of modern software services and deepens on their systematic use in the field of web engineering, as well as in SOA and distributed software. The topics to be covered in detail are, among others:

  • XML-based Web Services
  • REST architecture style
  • SOA components
  • Principles and patterns, such as Business Process Choreography, Enterprise Service Bus (ESB)
  • Challenges for software services in the business environment
  • Life cycle modeling

Qualification Objectives

  • Overview of the fundamental questions and problems in the operation of service-oriented architectures (SOA)
  • Classical protocols, such as HTTP, SOAP and WS-*, knowledge of REST architectural style application, understanding of different aspects of SOA, design, construction, implementation, operation and evolution of Software Services
  • Approaches, models, technologies, principles and tools for Software Services in the context of Distributed Software

Prerequisites (Recommended)

  • Computer Networks
  • XML
