Web Services SIG: SOA, XML, and Performance



  • The Monthly Meeting of the Web Services SIG



    SOA, XML, and Performance

    In this presentation, Frank will demonstrate building a service architecture implemented with XML- centric technologies (both commercial and open-source,) he will compare the effort to build the application with these tools, and he will demonstrate the performance of each using a load test of the implementations. Frank will show the design and test methodology for a new architecture he calls FastSOA and the results of a recently completed performance and scalability comparison of XML-centric tools.

    Attend this session and expect to take away the following:

    • Your choice of SOA and XML tools greatly impacts scalability and performance of the resulting system.
    • Learn Frank's methodology to quantify SOA scalability and performance and use the methodology in your work
    • Understand the differences in performance and developer productivity when choosing development tools, including native XML databases and relational databases
    • Get an update on the W3C and OASIS standards efforts for SOAP, XML, and the Web Services stack.
