[Podcast] Migrating from N-Tier to SOA

December 02, 2008

In this podcast we’ll be discussing certain methodologies for migrating an architecture from N-Tier to SOA. We’ll see what parts can be used almost unchanged, and which N-Tier concepts have no place in this new, service-oriented world.

Ketan asks:

Hello Udi,

I am Ketan, working as Analyst Programmer in India. I want some information regarding SOA Architecture. I have visited several blogs and sites and I do have enough knowledge regarding technical terms of SOA. I have worked a lot in 3-tier mechanism a lot and now want to switch on SOA Architecture in Visual Studio 2005.

I read your blog post How to migrate to SOA and liked the contents and am interested in doing it. Can you please be more precise about how to migrate from 3-tier to SOA? Actually, I have read whole content of above link and you have explained enough. But, still I want you to keep me out from dark. You have described it functionally, but I want some technical description of this process. Please help me in this.

If you can provide me some example/application (in which SOA Architecture has been implemented), then it will be very helpful to me.

Thanks in advance. Waiting for your favorable reply.
