Technologists who want their ideas heard, understood, and funded are often told to speak the language of business—without really knowing what that is. This book’s toolkit provides architects, product managers, technology managers, and executives with a shared language—in the form of repeatable, practical patterns and templates—to produce great technology strategies.
Author Eben Hewitt developed 39 patterns over the course of a decade in his work as CTO, CIO, and chief architect for several global tech companies. With these proven tools, you can define, create, elaborate, refine, and communicate your architecture goals, plans, and approach in a way that executives can readily understand, approve, and execute.
This book covers:
- Architecture and strategy: Adopt a strategic architectural mindset to make a meaningful material impact
- Creating your strategy: Define the components of your technology strategy using proven patterns
- Communicating the strategy: Convey your technology strategy in a compelling way to a variety of audiences
- Bringing it all together: Employ patterns individually or in clusters for specific problems; use the complete framework for a comprehensive strategy
Imagine what you could do if scalability wasn't a problem. With this hands-on guide, you’ll learn how the Cassandra database management system handles hundreds of terabytes of data while remaining highly available across multiple data centers. This third edition—updated for Cassandra 4.0—provides the technical details and practical examples you need to put this database to work in a production environment.
Authors Jeff Carpenter and Eben Hewitt demonstrate the advantages of Cassandra’s nonrelational design, with special attention to data modeling. If you’re a developer, DBA, or application architect looking to solve a database scaling issue or future-proof your application, this guide helps you harness Cassandra’s speed and flexibility.
- Understand Cassandra’s distributed and decentralized structure
- Use the Cassandra Query Language (CQL) and cqlsh—the CQL shell
- Create a working data model and compare it with an equivalent relational model
- Develop sample applications using client drivers for languages including Java, Python, and Node.js
- Explore cluster topology and learn how nodes exchange data
With this practical book, architects, CTOs, and CIOs will learn a set of patterns for the practice of architecture, including analysis, documentation, and communication. Author Eben Hewitt shows you how to create holistic and thoughtful technology plans, communicate them clearly, lead people toward the vision, and become a great architect or Chief Architect.
This book covers each key aspect of architecture comprehensively, including how to incorporate business architecture, information architecture, data architecture, application (software) architecture together to have the best chance for the system’s success.
- Get a practical set of proven architecture practices focused on shipping great products using architecture
- Learn how architecture works effectively with development teams, management, and product management teams through the value chain
- Find updated special coverage on machine learning architecture
- Get usable templates to start incorporating into your teams immediately
- Incorporate business architecture, information architecture, data architecture, and application (software) architecture together
Java SOA Cookbook offers practical solutions and advice to programmers charged with implementing a service-oriented architecture (SOA) in their organization. Instead of providing another conceptual, high-level view of SOA, this cookbook shows you how to make SOA work. It's full of Java and XML code you can insert directly into your applications and recipes you can apply right away.
The book focuses primarily on the use of free and open source Java Web Services technologies -- including Java SE 6 and Java EE 5 tools -- but you'll find tips for using commercially available tools as well.
Java SOA Cookbook will help you:
- Construct XML vocabularies and data models appropriate to SOA applications
- Build real-world web services using the latest Java standards, including JAX-WS 2.1 and JAX-RS 1.0 for RESTful web services
- Integrate applications from popular service providers using SOAP, POX, and Atom
- Create service orchestrations with complete coverage of the WS-BPEL (Business Process Execution Language) 2.0 standard
- Improve the reliability of SOAP-based services with specifications such as WS-Reliable Messaging
- Deal with governance, interoperability, and quality-of-service issues
The recipes in Java SOA Cookbook will equip you with the knowledge you need to approach SOA as an integration challenge, not an obstacle.
