This chapter talks about options to build a distributed system. However it is extremely outdated, as an example I quote ” SOAP is probably going to be the most common form…”. It turns out that the SOAP golden days were not there yet and currently have already passed. Now days most distributed systems are doing Microservices through RESTfull interfaces.
If we want to dive into this subject there are plenty of resources out there:
- Cheat Sheets
- Micro-Services – Martin Fowler
- ArrrrCamp 2015 – Stop Building Services, Episode 1: The Phantom Menace by Rachel Myers
- Principles Of Microservices by Sam Newman
- and many more videos in Youtube and articles throughout the web.
