The IBM SOA Foundation is a reference architecture used to build new applications or extend the value of existing applications and business processes. The IBM SOA Foundation includes an integration architecture, best practices, patterns, and SOA scenarios to help simplify the packaging and use of IBM open standards-based software.
A set of SOA scenarios is being developed by IBM that describe key architectural scenarios for SOA solutions and bridge the gap between SOA and the IBM products that can be used to implement these architectures.
This IBM Redbooks publication focuses on the Service Connectivity scenario, which describes architectural solutions using an ESB. The focus of this scenario is the integration of service consumers and service providers across multiple channels.
