Chapter 19 – Service-oriented architecture. The objective of this chapter is to introduce service-oriented software architecture as a way of building distributed applications using web services. When you have read this chapter, you will: understand the basic notions of a web service, web service standards, and service-oriented architecture; understand the service engineering process that is intended to produce reusable web services.
There are several good mechanical engineering data books on the market but these tend to be very bulky and
expensive, and are usually only available in libraries as reference books.
The Mechnical Engineer’s Data Handbook has been compiled with the express intention of providing a
compact but comprehensive source of information of particular value to the engineer whether in the design office,
drawing office, research and development department or on site.
Since the first DIISM conference, which took place 9 years ago, the world has
seen drastic changes, including the transformation of manufacturing and
engineering software, and the information and communication technologies
deployed. The conditions for manufacturing and engineering have changed on a
large scale, in terms of technology-enabled collaboration among the fields of
design, engineering, production, usage, maintenance and recycling/disposal.
These changes can be observed in rapidly-growing fields such as supply chain

Be familiar with the development of 2G mobile systems. Describe the architecture of a GSM network. Appreciate the main services provided within a GSM network. Understand the various facets of the GSM air interface including, access structures, frequency allocations, physical and logical channels.
Telecommunications is one of the fastest growing business sectors of modern
information technologies. A couple of decades ago, to have a basic understanding
of telecommunications, it was enough to know how the telephone
network operated. Today, the field of telecommunications encompasses a
vast variety of modern technologies and services. Some services, such as
the fixed telephone service in developed countries, have become mature,
and some have been exploding (e.g., cellular mobile communications and
Pro SQL Server 2012 Reporting Services opens the door to delivering customizable, web-enabled reports across your business at reasonable cost. Reporting Services is Microsoft's enterprise-level reporting platform. It is included with many editions of SQL Server, and is something you'll want to take advantage of if you're running SQL Server as your database engine.
Welcome to the discipline of building services engineering. You will find that it
extends beyond the confines of this text, which concentrates on some of the ‘wet
services’ within the building envelope. Part of Chapter 1, however, looks at the
building and the way it behaves when it is intermittently heated, as it is important
for you to select the plant and design the system that will best suit the building
and its use. It is assumed that you have some knowledge of building services.
Build and manage data integration solutions with expert guidance from the Microsoft SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) team. See best practices in action and dive deep into the SSIS engine, SSISDB catalog, and security features. Using the developer enhancements in SQL Server 2012 and the flexible SSIS toolset, you’ll handle complex data integration scenarios more efficiently—and acquire the skills you need to build comprehensive solutions. Discover how to:
Use SSIS to extract, transform, and load data from multiple data sources...
This book sets out to provide a basic grounding in the design of electrical services for
buildings. It is intended for students of building services engineering in universities and
polytechnics but will also be useful to graduates in mechanical and electrical engineering
who are about to specialize in building services after obtaining a more broadly based,
first degree. The emphasis throughout is on the needs of a design engineer rather than on
those of an installation electrician or of an architect....
Composite applications aid businesses by stitching together various componented
business capabilities. In the current enterprise scenario, empowering business
users to react quickly to the rapidly changing business environment is the top most
priority. With the advent of composite applications the 'reuse' paradigm has moved
from the technical aspect to the business aspect. You no longer re-use a service
but re-use a business process. Now, enterprises can define their own behaviors
optimized for their businesses through metadata and flows.
At present, great hopes are placed on information technology as the sources of
industry regeneration and new economic growth. This is because the roles of
IT have been expanded from the tools for manufacturing cost reduction and
service speedup to those for effective collaboration among enterprises and the
creation of new industries. From now on, the rise or fall of an enterprise will
be determined by quality of computerization investment. It is therefore an
urgent matter to bring up engineers who construct advanced information
systems and those who utilize them....
Management in all business areas and organisational activities are the acts of getting people
together to accomplish desired goals and objectives. Service is intangible, therefore, it is not
too easy to define the theory application in varieties of service industries. Service Management
usually incorporates automated systems along with skilled labour; it also provides service
As one of today's cloud computing services, Google App Engine does more than provide access to a large system of servers. It also offers you a simple model for building applications that scale automatically to accommodate millions of users. With Programming Google App Engine, you'll get expert practical guidance that will help you make the best use of this powerful platform. Google engineer Dan Sanderson shows you how to design your applications for scalability, including ways to perform common development tasks using App Engine's APIs and scalable services....
Which of the following systems offers the best results in introducing a three-tier client-server
architecture? a) A system with a small number of application services and classes b) A system where correction and addition of applications are frequent
Several countries present a series of urban problems, such as: dwelling deficit, infrastructure
problems, inefficient services, environmental pollution, etc. Urban Engineering searches
solution for these problems, by using a conjoined system of planning, management and
Many researches are related to application of instruments, methodologies and tools for
monitoring and acquisition of data, based on the factual experience and computational

I recently built a social portal called Mumbai Health Tracker. I am pleased to let you know that a lot of material covered in this book was used to create this application and there is no reason why you should not be able to create a similar application using the material presented in this book. http://mumbaihealth.appspot.com Mumbai Health Tracker is a social web service that aggregates health issues reported by its residents. These health issues are then categorized, aggregated to provide information that will be useful to Individuals, Government & Doctors....
