At the upcoming BiPRO day on 11.June 2013
I am going to give a presentation introducing the most important standards in the area of web service security. The aim is to show the purpose of the standards and how they work together to create secure and interoperable message based web service solutions.

If you ever tried to create an execution environment to automate business- or integration processes based on Open Source products, you know that this is not an easy task. Although Open Source products like Activiti or Apache Camel are of high quality, they do not run with production grade quality out-of-the-box. For serious usage scenarios typically . . . → Read More: Integrated Process Management with Open Source
(Automated) business processes evolve over time! And they usually evolve faster than IT systems do.
So how can business process changes be delivered to the users quickly?
Let’s look at an example:
Assume we have a process for vacation planning for the staff of a large company. Initially the process was automated based on the knowledge of the human . . . → Read More: Business Process Evolution and Versioning

Scrum (Agile Development)
Cross functional Team
Service-oriented Design (SOA)

Over the last decade I have seen many software solutions. Some excellent and some really bad ones. But most solutions were somewhere in the middle. They just did what they were supposed to do.
But is this really good enough? I don’t think so. Especially today where time to market is critical and the budgets are limited, . . . → Read More: Core Values of Great Software
One of the most important artifacts in Service-oriented Architecture (SOA) is the service contract. The contract defines how service producers and consumers interact with each other. Most people agree that a contract first approach is the preferred way of creating service contracts. WSDL based service contracts are very common. In many projects they are generated by . . . → Read More: Schema first contract design
A common challenge in Service-oriented architecture (SOA) is the design of service contracts. Beside many variations we see two basic types of contracts.
Forms over data (FOD) is an approach in which the forms in the user interface directly reflects the data structures in a database. The service-layer, if present, primarily offers create, read, update and delete (CRUD) operations for the . . . → Read More: Forms Over Data vs. Domain Driven Design
Recently SpringSource published a case study of a project which I supported as system architect and lead developer from concept to production.
The case study shows how organisations can greatly increase efficiency by the use of modern technology approaches such as Groovy, SOA and Domain Specific Languages (DSL).
