Software developers bring SOA apps into cloud computing architectures
Due to rising demand, software architects and developers are currently hard at work bringing SOA apps and ESBs into cloud computing architectures. Unfortunately, early implementers have found some roadblocks, says Jeff Genender, a well-known IT book author and open source consultant. For instance, the difficulty of deploying component updates without rebooting is a big problem. He noted that familiar hot swap capabilities can't be taken for granted up in the cloud; but frequent restarting may defeat the purpose of investing in the cloud at all. SearchSOA recently spoke with Genender to get a handle on this topic. Genender will be presenting at The ServerSide Java Symposium this March in Las Vegas.
