Content

This unit explores the rationale behind the move towards service oriented architectures (SOA) and enabling service oriented technologies. This unit develops in students an understanding of the “service”, the fundamental building block of service oriented architectures. The principles of service design that are required to build a truly service oriented solution logic to achieve the strategic goals associated with SOA and service oriented computing are areas of strong focus within this unit. Students will also be exposed to SOA enabling technologies (such as Web Services) to put into practice their theoretical knowledge through SOA solution design and application development. In addition the fundamentals of distributed computing with particular emphasis on parallel application development will be addressed.
