We all know the idea of sustainability from our daily life. But is it possible to apply this idea to software development? I think yes.
Sustainable Service Design is a practical approach to design and implement software services with a great level of reuse both at technical and business levels. It is based on the following four principles:
- Technology-agnostic service definition
- Unified request/response
- Consequent contract first
- Technology bindings
The advocates of Service Orientation always pointed out that SOA comprises 50% technology and 50% business. At BiPRO this vision becomes true.
BiPRO is a standardization organization for the insurance industry. BiPRO has members from the entire market including well known insurance companies and agents. By standardizing services at the business level using proven technical standards, BiPRO really takes the SOA idea to the next level. BiPRO conformant services are reusable and highly interoperable. Development is contract first, based on open standards such as WSDL and XSD. It is really impressive to see what BiPRO already achieved.
On 25.6.-26.6. June BiPRO-Day 2014 is going to take place in Düsseldorf Germany.
At the event I am going to give a live coding session. In particular I am going to show how to implement and secure BiPRO services using current Web Service standards such as JAX-WS, SAML, WS-Security and WS-SecureConversation. Attendees can see how the implementation works with JBoss Wildfly, Apache CXF and .NET. Moreover they can take a peek into the future of BiPRO standards in the area of security.
I hope to see you there!
