SIT737 introduces the concepts, mechanisms and applications of service oriented architectures (SOA), and the key focus is to deploy a real-world SOA web service application. This unit defines the notion of “service” in the field of IT and describes various categories of services from which the concept of service oriented architectures are formed. Students will work on case studies involving business strategies and business needs, and then evaluate the feasibility whether the business can be migrated to a service oriented architecture design. Students will also develop and implement a SOA-compliant web service for a particular business. Students will conduct programming practices in the Microsoft Visual Studio environment. SIT737 also discusses the SOA management issues including the ethical, legal and regulatory implications.
