New Technical Brief Examines Values of Intermediaries in SOA
SEARCH has published a new document in its Technical Brief series: “The Value of Using Intermediaries in a Service-Oriented Architecture.”
This brief explains the role and critical value of intermediary services in a service-oriented architecture (SOA). SOA is an architectural pattern in computer software design in which application components provide services to consumers via a communications protocol using messages.
An intermediary is a key service in SOA that allows for more agile (centralized) management of policies, service consumers, and service providers—thereby improving system interoperability and maintainability.
The brief provides an introduction to intermediaries, explains different information flow archetypes, describes an intermediary-based service modeling framework, and offers examples of practical implementations.
SEARCH’s complete Technical Brief library, focusing on technical issues in justice information sharing, dates back to 2007 and is available online.
