Part 1 presents a description of service-oriented architecture and the Enterprise Service Bus.
Part 2 describes the business scenario used throughout this book and explains the key technologies that you can use to build an Enterprise Service Bus in WebSphere Application Server V6, including Web services and the service integration bus.
Part 3 guides you through the process of architecting and implementing various Enterprise Service Bus configurations using WebSphere Application Server V6 and Rational Application Developer V6.
