Salary surveys worldwide regularly place software architect in the top 10 best jobs, yet no real guide exists to help developers become architects. Until now. This book provides the first comprehensive overview of software architecture’s many aspects. Aspiring and existing architects alike will examine architectural characteristics, architectural patterns, component determination, diagramming and presenting architecture, evolutionary architecture, and many other topics.
Mark Richards and Neal Ford—hands-on practitioners who have taught software architecture classes professionally for years—focus on architecture principles that apply across all technology stacks. You’ll explore software architecture in a modern light, taking into account all the innovations of the past decade.
This book examines:
- Architecture patterns: The technical basis for many architectural decisions
- Components: Identification, coupling, cohesion, partitioning, and granularity
- Soft skills: Effective team management, meetings, negotiation, presentations, and more
- Modernity: Engineering practices and operational approaches that have changed radically in the past few years
- Architecture as an engineering discipline: Repeatable results, metrics, and concrete valuations that add rigor to software architecture
There are no easy decisions in software architecture. Instead, there are many hard parts--difficult problems or issues with no best practices--that force you to choose among various compromises. With this book, you'll learn how to think critically about the trade-offs involved with distributed architectures.
Architecture veterans and practicing consultants Neal Ford, Mark Richards, Pramod Sadalage, and Zhamak Dehghani discuss strategies for choosing an appropriate architecture. By interweaving a story about a fictional group of technology professionals--the Sysops Squad--they examine everything from how to determine service granularity, manage workflows and orchestration, manage and decouple contracts, and manage distributed transactions to how to optimize operational characteristics, such as scalability, elasticity, and performance.
By focusing on commonly asked questions, this book provides techniques to help you discover and weigh the trade-offs as you confront the issues you face as an architect.
- Analyze trade-offs and effectively document your decisions
- Make better decisions regarding service granularity
- Understand the complexities of breaking apart monolithic applications
- Manage and decouple contracts between services
- Handle data in a highly distributed architecture
- Learn patterns to manage workflow and transactions when breaking apart applications
Softwarearchitektur zeitgemäß und pragmatisch geplant
- Architektonische Muster: Das technische Fundament für viele architektonische Entscheidungen
- Komponenten: Identifizierung, Kopplung, Kohäsion, Partitionierung und Granularität
- Architekturstile wie Microkernel, SOA, Microservices u.v.m. und ihre architektonischen Eigenschaften
- Softwarearchitektur als Engineering-Disziplin: mit wiederhol- und messbaren Ergebnissen zu stabilen Architekturen
Mark Richards und Neal Ford — Praktiker mit Erfahrung aus erster Hand, die seit Jahren das Thema Softwarearchitektur unterrichten —, betrachten Softwarearchitektur vor dem Hintergrund der Entwicklungen, Innovationen und Herausforderungen des letzten Jahrzehnts. Sie konzentrieren sich auf Architekturprinzipien, die für alle Technologie-Stacks gelten.
Angehende und erfahrene Architekten finden in diesem Buch umfassende Informationen zu architektonischen Merkmalen und Architekturstilen, zur Bestimmung von Komponenten, zur Diagrammerstellung und Präsentation, zu evolutionärer Architektur und vielen weiteren Themen.
Die Autoren verstehen Softwarearchitektur als Engineering-Disziplin: mit wiederhol- und messbaren Ergebnissen und konkreten Kennzahlen für stabile Softwarearchitekturen.
Java Message Service, Second Edition, is a thorough introduction to the standard API that supports "messaging" -- the software-to-software exchange of crucial data among network computers. You'll learn how JMS can help you solve many architectural challenges, such as integrating dissimilar systems and applications, increasing scalability, eliminating system bottlenecks, supporting concurrent processing, and promoting flexibility and agility.
Updated for JMS 1.1, this second edition also explains how this vendor-agnostic specification will help you write messaging-based applications using IBM's MQ, Progress Software's SonicMQ, ActiveMQ, and many other proprietary messaging services.
With Java Message Service, you will:
- Build applications using point-to-point and publish-and-subscribe messaging models
- Use features such as transactions and durable subscriptions to make an application reliable
- Implement messaging within Enterprise JavaBeans (EJB) using message-driven beans
- Use JMS with RESTful applications and with the Spring application framework
Messaging is a powerful paradigm that makes it easier to uncouple different parts of an enterprise application. Java Message Service, Second Edition, will quickly teach you how to use the key technology that lies behind it.
