Workshop Overview

As Service-Oriented Architectures continue to grow and mature, developers and architects are faced with an ever-growing number of programming interfaces, transports, data sources and other details. Service Component Architecture (SCA) and Service Data Objects (SDO) provide a single programming interface for a wide variety of services and data sources. In these workshops, attendees will see how the simplicity of SCA and SDO lets you focus on things that matter to your organization, not on the details of particular APIs.

Workshop Objectives:

  • Discuss the current state of Service-Oriented Architectures and its growing pains.
  • Explain the rationale behind Service Component Architecture and Service Data Objects and how these technologies simplify the development, testing and deployment of SOA applications.
  • Demonstrate the technology in action with examples running on the Apache Tuscany project, an open-source implementation of SCA and SDO.
  • Illustrate how SCA and SDO work with BPEL, the Business Process Execution Language. The combination of SCA, SDO and BPEL enable the greatest flexibility in Service-Oriented Architectures.


Architects and developers who want to understand the technologies that will drive the next generation of SOA.
