SOA Comparison Kit For Oracle, IBM, BEA, and TIBCO Platforms

The Kit delivers an SOA use case design, source code to the implementations of the use case on Oracle, IBM, BEA, and TIBCO

This morning I am glad to introduce you to a new set of resources to help surface scalability and performance issues in Service Oriented Architecture (SOA.) The SOA Knowledge and Performance Kit is a free open-source resource to show you what it really takes to build services using today's leading SOA development platforms.

The Kit delivers an SOA use case design, source code to the implementations of the use case on Oracle, IBM, BEA, and TIBCO platforms, developer journals describing our experiences step-by-step, a Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) calculator, and performance and scalability tests that leverage the PushToTest test automation platform.

PushToTest looked below the surface-level marketing claims to understand the skill sets, domain expertise, and specialization that it takes to be successful. We discovered a wide variety of experiences: some highly successful and others rife with challenges. We measured the amount of developer effort to implement an SOA use case and summarize the findings in the following total cost of ownership (TCO) comparison chart.

This morning we opened the doors on a new center within the PushToTest Web site for you to learn more about SOA, learn about the new composition approach to SOA development and deployment, and download the kits.
