The developerWorks Architecture Zone has a new article, "developerWorks bloggers on Architecture."
The subtitle is "Code is not your friend, and other words of wisdom from developerWorks bloggers." The article compiles blog postings from several of IBM's leading bloggers concerning architectural issues.
For example, Marc Colan discusses ESB compared with point to point. Marc is great at making new technology understandable in simple terms. Here he does a nice job of enumerating the issues that lead you to needing an ESB. Reminds me of my ESB for Developers Article (which includes pictures).
The article also includes one of my favorite blog postings by Don Ferguson, SOA product complexity. It does a nice job of explaining succinctly different kinds of services and how the different products apply.
And (of course) there's one of my postings, Interoperability or integration?, where I try to define the difference between the two. (Originally Interoperability vs. Integration and More on Interoperability vs. Integration.) 'Course, guess this discussion isn't new to you if you've been keeping up with this blog.
So, good stuff. Go check it out.
