New ITG Series Book: Understanding SCA
Monday, July 20, 2009
One of the things I do is act as series editor for Addison-Wesley's Independent Technology Guides. The latest book in this series, Understanding SCA (Service Component Architecture)
, has just been published. Written by Jim Marino and Michael Rowley, it's like all the other books in the ITG series: an intro to an important new area.
We sometimes describe the series as containing the first book a developer should read and the only book that developer's manager needs to read. Toward this end, Understanding SCA provides a broad overview of the topic along with enough depth to give you a solid grasp of the basics.
I continue to believe that SCA gets less attention than it should (including from the vendors that claim to support it). Perhaps the publication of Jim and Mike's book will help change this. SCA is unquestionably an interesting technology.
