Deploying the Service Oriented Solution


Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) is an approach to building distributed systems. The service oriented solution demonstrates how several back-end systems using different protocols can be aggregated into a single service that clients can consume. This solution integrates services with an approach that guarantees delivery and performance characteristics.

The service oriented solution is modeled after a service-level agreement scenario in which BizTalk Server and the Line of Business (LOB) application servers connected to it are given three seconds to respond with a service request. One of those three seconds may be taken up by the BizTalk Server.

The topics in this section describe how to install and test the service oriented solution on a single computer and multiple production servers.

There are three versions of the service oriented solution: adapter, inline, and stub. For more information about the differences between three versions of the service-oriented solution, see Understanding the Service Oriented Solution.
