As the future of software development in a global environment continues to be influenced by the areas of service-oriented architecture (SOA) and cloud computing, developers will need to migrate many legacy applications to these environments to take advantage of the benefits offered by the service environment.
Migrating Legacy Applications: Challenges in Service Oriented Architecture and Cloud Computing Environments is a book by Grace Lewis of the SEI staff along with Anca Daniela Ionita (University Politehnica of Bucharest, Romania) and Marin Litoiu (York University, Canada) that presents a closer look at the partnership between service-oriented architecture and cloud-computing environments while analyzing potential solutions to challenges related to the migration of legacy applications.
The book recently received a favorable review from Pethuru Raj, IBM Global Cloud Center of Excellence (CoE), India, who wrote,
This book is all about the correct compilation of proven and potential approaches, tools, techniques and tips for smoothly and systematically modernizing and moving old software systems to service systems that can be easily deployed in and delivered from cloud environments. This is an informative and inspiring book authored by accomplished professors, practitioners and professionals for worldwide software developers, architects, consultants and experts who are assigned to ponder about the ways and means of legacy migration.
