SOA & WOA Magazine on Ulitzer WS-BPEL 2.0 is the dominant specification to standardize orchestration logic and process automation between Web services. The BPEL model is used to assemble a set of discrete, essentially disparate, services into an end-to-end process flow to transform the existing stateless and uncorrelated Web service infrastructure into cohesive, process-centric applications based on a service-oriented architecture. Under this model, new applications are developed "on-the-fly" by wiring together external "partner" services that leverage existing enterprise assets. JBoss's jBPM product is an open source platform for BPEL as well as other graph-based execution languages and provides the runtime infrastructure: interpretion, extraction/WSDL document publishing, flow execution, analytics, transactional and persistence support for the deployed service c...

Managing the "Service Layer" of Applications to Get the Most from Your SOA

Widely discussed in IT circles are the limitations of traditional application management products in enabling organizations to achieve maximum return on their SOA investments – often thanks to the higher level of complexity for applications running in this environment. Application Performance Management (APM) solutions provide deep visibility into the performance of an application’s code, but fail to associate this code performance with visibility to the performance of the ‘business services’ delivered by these applications. The result, more often than not, is poor service and performance levels. In this session, Gaspar Petrosyan, Principal Solutions Architect at ClearApp, will highlight the emerging array of application management challenges involved with SOA. In addition, he will define the concept of ‘application services’ and ... (more)

Open Source Selenium Web Application Testing System

Selenium is a free Web Application Testing System. It gained lots of popularity since it is available. It’s integration to FireFox – which allows instant record/replay as well as the scripting option - makes it a great tool for functional web testing. BrowserMob on the other side leverages Selenium by providing an automated load-testing environment for Selenium scripts all configurable online via a Web Dashboard. Tagging Web Requests In my recent blog post – Get more out of functional web testing: How to correlate test reports with server side log information? – I discussed the problem that testing results are usually not linked to the log and diagnostics information captured by the application under test. The blog entry offered a way to link the two sides using HTTP Tagging via an HTTP Proxy. Tagging individual Web Requests allows linking each individual request ... (more)

Amazon Web Services Database in the Cloud

Amazon Cloud Journal Amazon Web Services LLC, an Amazon.com company (NASDAQ: AMZN), today introduced Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS), a new web service that makes it easy to set up, operate, and scale relational databases in the cloud. Amazon RDS provides cost-efficient and resizable capacity while automating time-consuming database administration tasks, freeing users to focus on their application and their business. As with all Amazon Web Services, there are no up-front investments required, and you pay only for the resources you use. Also announced today, AWS has lowered prices and introduced a new family of High-Memory instances for Amazon EC2. To get started using Amazon RDS, and other Amazon Web Services, visit http://aws.amazon.com. “For almost two years, many AWS customers have taken advantage of the simplicity, reliability, and seamless s...

New OpenSolaris VPC Gateway Tool

Amazon Cloud Journal On August 26th, 2009, Amazon Web Services launched their new Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) service. According to Amazon, this service: [...] is a secure and seamless bridge between a company’s existing IT infrastructure and the AWS cloud. Amazon VPC enables enterprises to connect their existing infrastructure to a set of isolated AWS compute resources via a Virtual Private Network (VPN) connection, and to extend their existing management capabilities such as security services, firewalls, and intrusion detection systems to include their AWS resources. Amazon VPC integrates today with Amazon EC2, and will integrate with other AWS services in the future. Sounds pretty cool, right? Well, I thought so. Back then, this announcement peaked by interest and I wanted to dive in and give it a try. Unfortunately, the VPC documentation leans more heavily toward ... (more)

Cloud Balancing, Reverse Cloud Bursting, and Staying PCI-Compliant

One of the concerns with cloud bursting specifically for the use of addressing seasonal scaling needs is that cloud computing environments are not necessarily PCI-friendly. But there may be a solution that allows the application to maintain its PCI-compliance and still make use of cloud computing environments for seasonal scaling efficiency. Cloud bursting, a.k.a. overdraft protection, is a great concept but in some situations, such as those involving PCI-compliance, it can be difficult if not impossible to actually implement. The financial advantages to cloud bursting for organizations requiring additional capacity on only a seasonal basis are well understood, but the regulatory issues that surround such implementations hinder adoption of this method to address cost-effective capacity increases when necessarily only for short periods of time. But what if we archit... (more)
