In this course, you will be introduced to Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) concepts, the SOA approach to integration, and the Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g R3 products that support an SOA implementation. You will learn the core SOA service components and how to use them to compose a SOA application using Oracle SOA suite to address real-world business challenges. Using Oracle SOA Suite 11g, you will explore, modify, execute, and monitor an order-processing composite application implemented using the SOA approach.
