Developing SOA Composite Applications using POJOs

I’ve just had an article published on the Packt Article Network entitled Developing SOA Applications Using POJOs. In the article I discuss how to use the POJO Service Engine in GlassFish ESB / OpenESB when creating Composite Applications in NetBeans .

“PoJos – Plain Old Java Objects, are, as the name describes, simple, ordinary Java objects. They do not have to be derived from a specific class, nor do they have to implement any specific interfaces. In the modern world of Java EE development where the latest frameworks have made enterprise development easier, wouldn’t it be good if we could develop SOA based applications using PoJos? Fortunately, GlassFish ESB (OpenESB) allows us to do this using the PoJo Service Engine.”

In the article I discuss:

  • GlassFish ESB
  • Creating a PoJo and Deploying to GlassFish ESB
  • Creating A SOAP Binding for PoJos
  • Testing the Composite Application
