   Abstract

"Wow. I fell asleep listening to SOA music, and when I woke up, I couldn’t remember where I’d put my data. Now what?" Has this happened to you? With the new push towards service-oriented architectures and process orientation, data seems to have been lost in the shuffle. At the end of the day, however, applications are still about data, and service-oriented architecture (SOA) applications are no different. In this talk, we will present BEA’s approach to serving up data to SOA applications. Last year, BEA introduced a middleware product called the AquaLogic Data Services Platform (ALDSP). The purpose of ALDSP is to make it easy to design, develop, deploy, and maintain a data services layer in the world of SOA. ALDSP provides a new, declarative foundation for building SOA applications and services that need to access and compose information from a range of enterprise data sources.

The talk will attempt to cover both the foundation and the key features of ALDSP, including its underlying technologies, its overall system architecture, and its interesting capabilities. Time permitting, a brief demo may be included.
