BPEL Cookbook: Best Practices for SOA-based integration and composite applications development: Ten practical real-world case studies combining ... management and web services orchestration
This book is not just another generic set of Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) best practices with only general recommendations and advice: instead it's a unique cookbook that shows you how SOA applications are built using best practices that are proven in 10 real-world scenarios. The book consists of three sections. The first two sections will inspire you. They showcase real-life projects on BPEL-based integration and development of composite applications. You'll see that SOA is a reality today, learn what successful implementations are like, and how SOA can work for you right now. It will encourage you to take a plunge into the world of services and test-drive SOA yourself. If you are already in the middle of an SOA implementation, these sections will offer you fresh insight into your current approach, help you to deal with specific business challenges, and make sure what you do is in line with the best practice. The third section will equip you with BPEL techniques to build better SOA applications. These techniques represent the practical implementation of best practice, with code snippets ranging from development to administration of an SOA application. They are generic enough to be applied in any of your existing projects yet specific enough to enable you reap the full benefits from your SOA implementation.This book is aimed at architects and developers building applications in Service Oriented Architecture. The book presumes knowledge of BPEL, SOA, XML, web services, and multi-tier architectures.

Oracle-centric. Very short book, could be a magazine. Take out the screenshots and code snippets and it's a $45 pamphlet. Most of the recipes are cooked using Oracle products. The descriptions and back cover are misleading. Not recommended if you are interested in other solution providers.
Best Practices for SOA Integration on the Money
By Richard A. Colton "Rich Colton" - November 16, 2006
The BPEL Cookbook is an excellent practical guide to real-world SOA integration issues. It is not a "Learn BPEL" book, but rather the next step once you learn how to develop in BPEL. It addresses various types of issues that one needs to consider when developing BPEL processes. Chapter 3, "Building the Service Value Chain", addresses the core of building a SOA architecture that the business process must be standardized and documented. While a couple of chapters are Oracle BPEL centric, the rest of the chapters address generic issues of any BPEL implementation. In particular, Reliable Messaging, Web Services Invocation Framework (WSIF), building dynamic BPEL processes, and centralizing logging and error handling. For those using Oracle BPEL, chapter 5 shows how to use the Worklist API to build a rich Internet application. And chapter 2 shows how to integrate PeopleSoft CRM with Oracle eBusiness Suite.
Very useful for the Architects who are architecting SOA solution using Oracle BPEL Process Manager

Many of our clients are migrating from traditional Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) to the standard based SOA. This book has ten real-world case studies, which helped me to architect the solutions. Sometimes I use this book as best practices of Oracle BPEL-PM .
I like this book because the approach is more real-life examples than theory. Developers with minimum experience in SOA world will be able to leverage this emerging technology very easily.
Even though this book is useful for anybody to understand SOA and BPEL, this is extra useful for the people who are using Oracle Fusion Middleware (BPEL Process Manager).
