Oracle SOA Suite 11g Administrator’s Handbook by A Ahmed and Arun Pareek

This book is comprehensive .. covers many Aspects of SOA Managment through EM , like deploying , undeploying , setting up revisions, retiring and activating composites , most often these details would be handy while implementing large scale projects with SOA/BPM . chapters on Exporting and Importing MDS (Metadata Store,
) is a great thing to know for SOA Developers / Administrators .. i thought they could have provided more screen captures around this that would make it easier for the first time SOA developers . Instance based Audit Trails , Flows , faults are well explained making it easier to understand … Transaction Monitoring and Request Processing are well covered with respect to JMS Sensors … Monitoring EDN (Event Delivery Network) is also an Important thing to know which is used in many real life demonstrations or Proof of Concepts at SOA/BPM Layer of Enterprise Architecture implementation …

Also the chapter on Performance Tuning of SOA Applications adds value to this book .. really a Handy book to have both for SOA Developers and Administators .. in real life scenario most often SOA developers also do admin work along with Implementation .. this would be very useful

Oracle BPM Suite 11g: Advanced BPMN Topics

Real life implementation of SOA/ BPM is more complex than simple topics most books or blogs cover … this book is a great value add if you are core BPM Process Developer or Implementer .. this not only covers how things are done but also covers the best practices around the Process implementation .. it covers some of the most advanced topics of BPM such as Inter process communication, event and error handling, working with BPM Arrays , Exception handling … etc

The hands on examples in this book include communicating between processes using messages and correlation, using correlation inside loops, communication between processes using signals, and reusable sub-processes. i particularly liked the section that shows how the timer catch event is used to slow down the process.

I would recommend this book as “Must have” if you are a core SOA/BPM Developer or if you are an Architect trying to implement Best Practices around these process.
