These areas, for the most part, have already been well-documented in previous titles in this book series. As an introductory resource, this chapter provides a set of sections comprised of summarized content from the following titles, along with new content introduced in support of upcoming chapters:
- Service-Oriented Architecture: Concepts, Technology, and Design – Contains content about SOA project delivery processes and roles.
- SOA Principles of Service Design – Contains additional content about SOA project roles, as well as the description of service profiles.
- Web Service Contract Design and Versioning for SOA – Contains detailed content about service contract versioning.
If you are new to service project lifecycle stages, organizational roles, and the use of service profiles, then it is recommended that you study the upcoming sections as these topics will be referenced throughout upcoming chapters.
