And then we wonder why software is notorious for being delivered late and full of bugs, while other engineers routinely deliver finished bridges, automobiles, electrical appliances, etc., on time and with only minor defects. This book sets out to redress this imbalance. Members of my...

A guide to sidestepping the usual hazards that often spell Project Fog, this book...

How can today's web services be brought together in a coherent, manageable whole? How can they be integrated, monitored, and secured?

IBM, Microsoft, Oracle, BEA, Red Hat, and Sun have all jumped on the ESB bandwagon. However, there's extensive confusion about ESB: definitions and solutions vary widely, and best practices have only recently emerged....
