Service Oriented Architecture: An Integration Blueprint

by Guido Schmutz Peter Welkenbach

A theoretical guide, this book provides detailed and structured explanations and visualizations of the Trividas Integration Architecture Blueprint, showing you the strategy to implement your own integration projects. It draws on real-world integrations at an architectural level, and explores both product-neutral and specific integration scenarios. If you are an IT architect or manager who is responsible for any aspect of operating integration solutions, and you want to learn how to implement integration architectures in practice with the help of the Trivadis Integration Architecture Blueprint, then this book is for you. A comprehensive understanding of SOA is required, though previous knowledge of the Trivadis Blueprint is not necessary. Less experienced specialists who have not yet dealt with integration will benefit greatly from this book by first gaining knowledge of concepts and terminology used in the context of integration architecture, while those already familiar with such expertise can move straight to discovering the base technologies associated with implementing solutions based on the Blueprint, and getting to grips with the Blueprint's structure itself. If you want to assess the solutions from different vendors and ultimately achieve comprehensive SOA integration results using the Trivadis Integration Architecture Blueprint, then this book is ideal for you.

Hitler

by R. H. Stolfi

Countless books, including five major biographies, have been devoted to the subject of Adolf Hitler. Yet, despite the mass of tantalizing detail uncovered over six decades, the man at the center of so much historical, psychological, and political analysis remains elusive. For some, he was evil personified, a diabolical tyrant driven by a lust for power; for others, he was a banal demagogue, an opportunist with a talent for propaganda and oration but little more than an empty vessel embodying the disappointments of a defeated Germany. Though we know many facts about Hitler, no coherent picture of his character or personality emerges. Instead, we are left with a cardboard cutout of an evil dictator whose life, in the end, no one can really explain. This fascinating and richly detailed new biography of Hitler reinterprets the known facts about the Nazi Fuehrer to construct a convincing, realistic portrait of the man. In place of the hollow shell others have made into an icon of evil, the author sees a complex, nuanced personality. Without in any way glorifying its subject, this unique revision of the historical Hitler brings us closer to understanding a pivotal personality of the twentieth century.

This critical examination reveals an unflattering picture of the faith and its practitioners. Nevertheless, it is the truth, something that has either been deliberately concealed by modern scholars or buried in obscure journals accessible only to a select few.
