WebSphere SOA and J2EE in Practice

WebSphere SOA and J2EE in Practice is the name of the IBM developerworks blog maintained by Bobby Woolf. The blog handles pretty much technical topics of currently highly relevant technologies. I'm speaking about SOA, J2EE (Of course, when speaking about Websphere). This, in the context of using IBM's J2EE products: Rational Application Server, Websphere Application Server, Websphere Process Server and Websphere Integration Developer.

The author of the blog has background in consulting using IBM's products and works for the IBM Software Services for Websphere unit of IBM. He authored the "Exploring IBM SOA technology and Practice" and co-authored 2 others.

There is an accompanying Wiki to the blog, although I personnally didn't see the point, till I read Bobby Wolf's answer to that question, here. As a foretaste to what the blog is about, read the post from the 31st of January, where a definition of Services as "Service Contract" is given. Interesting read from a very practice-related perspective.

For readers who are interested in the technical implementation of business processes (we at the IDS concentrate on "real" BPM, so-called Business BPM :D), this blog might give many interesting ideas about how questionings and experience in SOA and IBM's J2EE products. One to keep an eye on anyway!
