“Oracle SOA BPEL Process Manager 11gR1 – A Hands-on Tutorial”, published by Packt Publishing in my opinion is not a hands-on tutorial, but an overview about BPEL, SOA Suite and other Oracle SOA Components like BPM Suite and ESB. Inside this book you will find some explanations about these tools, but nothing too detailed.
With this book you will learn how to install the SOA Suite and JDeveloper, create a SOA domain, create a simple BPEL process, configure some BPEL features and a little bit about architecture, performance tuning and troubleshooting.
Two points to mention:
- The author could explore more and show other BPEL process examples.
- The chapters about performance and troubleshooting have a lot of tips, but in a book for begginers, it can be boring.
This book is recommended for begginer level readers working with BPEL in Oracle SOA Suite, but I think this is not the best book to start your learning about BPEL. You can use a book with more BPEL process examples.
