Thinking Beyond....

  1. 1. Thinking Beyond.... Making the Enterprise Service Bus address demanding Infrastructure Requirements  
  2. 2. Agenda <ul><li>SOA, ESB, Web Services Refresher </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Architecture </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Enterprise Web Service Services </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Security, reliability </li></ul></ul><ul><li>ESB Extension Services </li></ul><ul><ul><li>High availability, Management </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Amberpoint SOA Management </li></ul><ul><li>Organizations and Futures </li></ul><ul><li>Q&A </li></ul>
  3. 3. What is SOA? Service Oriented Architecture Service System capabilities that provide access to functions and data are appropriately exposed to other components (applications, devices, networks, etc.) Oriented Uses “open” interoperability protocols Architecture In its purest form, it’s the connection of systems (simple or complex)
  4. 4. W3C – What is a Web Service? Source: W3C Working Group Note 11 February 2004 <ul><ul><li>“ A Web service is a software system designed to support interoperable machine-to-machine interaction over a network. It has an interface described in a machine-processable format (specifically WSDL). Other systems interact with the Web service in a manner prescribed by its description using SOAP messages, typically conveyed using HTTP with an XML serialization in conjunction with other Web-related standards.” </li></ul></ul>
  5. 5. ESB as Infrastructure for SOA <ul><li>“ An Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) is software infrastructure that enables SOA by acting as an intermediary layer of middleware through which a set of reusable business services are made widely available.” </li></ul>Forrester Research Source: Mike Gilpin, Forrester Research, August 2004
  6. 6. Realizing SOA with Web Services <ul><li>Web Services are an economical way to build SOA </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Cost-centric – largest IT cost is labor </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Simple technology, short learning curve </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Standards minimize the risk of vendor lock-in </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Web services are inexpensive, no huge initial investment </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Integration-centric </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Instead of just doing yet another point-to-point integration between two applications, you can build a set of services that can be used by other applications in your enterprise </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Process-driven </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Web services can be used to define processes in an SOA </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Reuse-centric </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Web services can easily wrap and thus enable reuse of existing computing services and applications </li></ul></ul></ul>
  7. 7. SOA and Web Services <ul><li>SOA does not need Web Services </li></ul><ul><li>Not every Web Service is based on SOA </li></ul><ul><li>BUT </li></ul>Through 2008, SOA and Web Services will be implemented together in more than 75 percent of new SOA or Web Services projects (0.7 probability)
  8. 8. Government SOA Potential <ul><li>Integration across government and public sector boundaries </li></ul><ul><li>Procurement - Enterprise data integration </li></ul><ul><li>Licensing Applications - Collaborative, distributed application development and deployment </li></ul><ul><li>E-Receipts - Enterprise service sharing </li></ul><ul><li>Tax Calculation - Enterprise enablement of common business processes </li></ul><ul><li>Criminal Background Checks - Enterprise service sharing </li></ul>
  9. 9. Basic Web Services Technologies Review <ul><li>XML Technologies </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>“ Extensible Markup Language” </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Base XML for documents </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>XML Schema for describing XML documents </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>SOAP </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>A simple way to send documents (some people have called it “email for documents”) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>How to format XML documents for transmission </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>WSDL - Web Services Description Language </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Defines implementation details about a service </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>UDDI - Universal Description, Discovery and Integration </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Store, advertise and discover services </li></ul></ul></ul>
  10. 10. Basic Web Services Architecture XML documents within SOAP messages defined by WSDL discovered via UDDI
  11. 11. How will all of this work? A Web Services Infrastructure WS Client WS Server XML document XML document Web Service SOAP Support SOAP Support SOAP message SOAP message HTTP Support over network
  12. 12. What is the Web Service Server Doing? <ul><li>The typical server pattern: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>(passively) wait on arriving XML documents contained within a SOAP envelope </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Extract and analyze the document </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Interact with other software components to complete the processing of the document </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Optionally: return another XML document in response </li></ul></ul>Web Service SOAP Request SOAP Response server
  13. 13. Enterprise Web Services <ul><li>Extending WS throughout the enterprise and among enterprises  greater emphasis on Qualities Of Service (QoS) </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Security, Reliability, Transactions, Scalability </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Systems Management, Policy, Metadata Management/Governance </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Interoperability </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>It’s also important to support multiple transports and data formats (other than SOAP over HTTP): </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>IIOP & RMI </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>WebSphereMQ </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>TIBCO Rendezvous </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Tuxedo </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>FTP </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>JMS </li></ul></ul></ul>

  15. 15. Industry organizations <ul><li>Developing Web services standards </li></ul><ul><ul><li>W3C </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>XML, SOAP (XMLP working group), WSDL , WS - Addressing, WS-Choreography, Semantic Web Services </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>OASIS </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>UDDI, WS-Security, WS-Reliable Exchange, WS-Transactions, WS-CAF, WS-Notification, WS-Secure Exchange, etc. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>JCP (Java Community Process) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>JAX-RPC, JWSDL, JAXM, JAXR, … </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>WS-I </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Basic profile, security profile, etc. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>OMG </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>IDL to WSDL, WSDL to IDL (WSDL 1.1), WSDL to C++ </li></ul></ul></ul>

  21. 21. Extending WSDL Contracts – Enterprise Services Logical Contract Physical Contract WSDL Reliability required – Y/N Transactions required – Y/N Kerberos supported – Y/N Other SLAs Bindings SOAP XML Bindings Transport Service HTTP Transports IIOP JMS Bindings SOAP CORBA
  22. 22. Eclipse-Based GUI – Adding basic security
  23. 23. SOAP Header example (WS-Security) <S11:Envelope xmlns:S11=&quot;...&quot; xmlns:wsse=&quot;...&quot; xmlns:wsu=&quot;...“ xmlns:ds=&quot;...&quot;> <S11:Header> <wsse:Security xmlns:wsse=&quot;...&quot;> <fabtok:CustomToken wsu:Id=&quot;MyID&quot; xmlns:fabtok=&quot;http://fabr123/token“ /> <ds:Signature> . . . </ds:Signature> <ds:SignedInfo> . . . </ds:SignedInfo> </wsse:Security> </S11:Header> ... </S11:Envelope> Security
  24. 24. Reliability requirements <ul><li>Reliability of message delivery is critical to many applications </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Guarantee of message delivery (both request and response) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>At least once (duplicates are allowed) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>At most once (“best effort”, ok to drop some messages) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Once and only once – the toughest to guarantee! </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Eliminate duplicates (if any) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Preserve message ordering (when important) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Some of these features are provided as standard when WS are carried on a connection-oriented protocol </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The “sessions” and correlation IDs of the connection-oriented protocol ensures features such as ordering </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>But some QoS must still be added (e.g., store-and-forward to allow clients to send messages even if a server isn’t running) </li></ul></ul>Reliability
  25. 25. Example message flow: WS-ReliableMessaging) Reliability
  26. 26. Web Services Composition <ul><li>Once you have a “critical mass” of Web services, you may want to: </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>link them together to create (composite) complex Web services </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>implement whole business processes based on those services </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Of course you can “hard-code” this, but the result is </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>inflexible (hard to maintain) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>proprietary, not explicit (business logic will be buried in code) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Better: Standardized high-level mechanisms </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Standardized declarative, non-programmatic way to compose sequences of web service calls to accomplish a business function </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Efforts ongoing to provide </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>WS-BPEL (seems to be winning at present) for run-time </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>WS-Choreography (more B2B oriented) between partners </li></ul></ul></ul>Composition
  27. 27. Orchestration Architecture Adapters Message queuing system – A2A/B2B Integration broker Other applications Database tables and stored procedures ERP, CRM, Accounting, etc. Web service interfaces Composition Often, you have selection and loops as well just sequencing This overall sequence is viewed as a WS from outside You can also do transformation of data within the overall sequence
  28. 28. Interoperability Requirements <ul><li>Within the enterprise and among enterprises </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Across hardware platforms, operating systems, programming languages, middleware and component technologies </li></ul></ul><ul><li>SoapBuilders and WS-I have been working to correlate the many WS standards into more interoperable configurations. E.g., </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Defining a consistent selection of standards </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Subsetting (“profiling”) a standard </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Ensuring compatible message encoding is another key part of interoperability </li></ul><ul><ul><li>As discussed in the new few slides </li></ul></ul>Interoperability
  29. 29. You have a choice of the encoding for complex data in msgs <ul><li>The WS-I recommendation is literal </li></ul><ul><ul><li>This uses XMLSchema in the normal way </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>The message references a schema that defines the elements and types for formatting arrays, sequences, records/structures, and other complex types </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>The message uses these elements and types </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>The alternative is SOAP encoded </li></ul><ul><ul><li>This defines a set of elements that can be used for complex data </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Mostly, these elements were good at formatting data that typically arises in RPC calls </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>It was first introduced before XMLSchema was available </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Harder to achieve broad interoperability </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Especially when using more complex data types </li></ul></ul></ul>
  30. 30. You also have a choice between two message styles <ul><li>The choice is rpc or document </li></ul><ul><ul><li>document style is recommended by WS-I </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>many existing Web services use rpc style) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Operation have input and (optional) output messages </li></ul><ul><ul><li>In rpc style, each message can have zero or more parts </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li><message name=“getQuoteRequest”> </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li><part name=“symbol” type=s:string”> </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li><part name=“date” type=“s:string> </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li></message> </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>In document style, each message have one part </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>An XML element, not a type </li></ul></ul>WS-I has yet to profile SOAP 1.2
