Redbook DB2 9 for z/OS: Deploying SOA Solutions

Hi DB2 User,

IBM just published a draft version of a new Redbook, "DB2 9 for z/OS: Deploying SOA Solutions, SG24-7663-00" :

Flexibility in business has become equal in importance with operational efficiency. Service-oriented architecture (SOA) can help businesses respond more quickly and cost-effectively to the changing market conditions by promoting reuse and interconnection of existing IT assets rather than time-consuming and costly reinvention.
SOA has been the top fashionable topic in IT for a few years now. This is because there is a consensus of opinions among enterprise architects that SOA is the key to making the IT department a catalyst for growth and innovation.
DB2® for z/OS® integrates with Web services, acts as a service provider and lets SQL applications consume Web services. DB2 customers can make their legacy DB2 applications easily available in a SOA architecture and by supporting natively XML data type DB2 allows building new application exploiting the strategic characteristics XML provides.
This IBM® Redbooks® publication helps you get started with SOA by showing the implementation of the minimum requirements: The creation of Web services that allow access to data that is stored in data servers or applications and the realization of interaction services for business to consumer integration. We do that utilizing functions provided by DB2 for z/OS, like pureXML™ and SOAP UDFs, in conjunction with those provided by Data Studio, DataPower® , and WebSphere® Application Server.
