Question 1

Upon reviewing these requirements it becomes evident to you that the Orchestration compound pattern will need to be applied. However, there are additional requirements that need to be fulfilled. To build this service composition architecture, which patterns that is not associated with the Orchestration compound pattern need to also be applied? (Be sure to choose only those patterns that relate directly to the requirements described above. Patterns associated with the Orchestration compound pattern include both the required or core patterns that are part of the basic compound pattern and the optional patterns that can extend the basic compound pattern.)



Answer : C, L

Question 2

Service A is an orchestrated task service that is invoked by a separate composition initiator (1) and then sends a request message to Service C (2). Service C queries Database B to retrieve a large data record (3) and provides this data in a response message that is sent back to Service A . Service A temporarily stores this data in a central state database (4) and then sends a request message to Service D (5), which accesses a legacy system API to retrieve a data value (6). Service D then sends this data value in a response message back to Service A . The data in the state database is subsequently retrieved by Service A (7) and merged with the newly received data value. This combined data is written to Database A (8), which triggers an event that results in the invocation of Service B (9). Service B is an orchestrated task service that sends a request message to Service D (10). which accesses a legacy system API to retrieve a data value (11) and then sends this data value in a response message back to Service B . Service B temporarily stores this data in a central state database (12) and then sends a request message to Service E (13), which performs a runtime calculation and then responds with the calculated data value back to Service B . The data in the state database is then retrieved by Service B (14) and merged with the calculated data value. Service B then uses the merged data to complete its business task. The following specific problems and requirements exist: Database B uses a proprietary data format that is not compliant with the XML format used by all of the services in this service composition architecture This incompatibility needs to be solved in order to enable the described service message exchanges. The service contract provided by Service D does not comply with the data model standards that were applied to the other services and therefore uses a different data model to represent the same type of data that is exchanged. This incompatibility needs to be solved in order to enable communication with Service D . Database B is a shared database that can be accessed by other services and applications within the IT enterprise, which causes unpredictable runtime performance. This performance problem needs to be solved in order to make the runtime behavior of Service C more predictable. For performance and maintenance reasons, Service A and Service B need to be deployed in the same physical environment where they can share a common state database.

Upon reviewing these requirements it becomes evident to you that the Enterprise Service Bus compound pattern will need to be applied. However, there are additional requirements that need to be fulfilled. To build this service composition architecture, which patterns that is not associated with the Enterprise Service Bus compound pattern need to also be applied? (Be sure to choose only those patterns that relate directly to the requirements described above. Patterns associated with the Enterprise Service Bus compound pattern include both the required or core patterns that are part of the basic compound pattern and the optional patterns that can extend the basic compound pattern.)



Answer : H, L, M

Question 3

You are an architect with a project team building services for Service Inventory A . You are told that no SLAs for Service B and Service C are available. You cannot determine how available these services will be, but it has been confirmed that both of these services support atomic transactions and the issuance of positive and negative acknowledgements. However, you also find out that the services in Service Inventory B use different data models than the services in Service Inventory A . Furthermore, recent testing results have shown that the performance of Service D is steady and reliable. However, Service D uses a different transport protocol than the services in Service Inventory A . The response time of Service A is not a primary concern, but Service Consumer A does need to be able to issue request messages to Service A 24 hours a day without disruption. What steps can be taken to fulfill these requirements?



Answer : C

Question 4

Service Consumer A invokes Service A (1). The logic within Service A is required to retrieve three independent data values from Services B, C, and D and to then return these data values back to Service Consumer A . To accomplish this, Service A begins by sending a request message to Service B (2). After receiving a response message with the first data value from Service B, Service A sends a request message to Service C (3). After it receives a response message with the second data value from Service C, Service A then sends a request message to Service D (4). Upon receiving a response message with the third data value from Service D . Service A finally sends its own response message (containing all three collected data values) back to Service Consumer A . Service Consumer A and Service A reside in Service Inventory A . Service B and Service C reside in Service Inventory B . Service D is a public service that can be openly accessed via the World Wide Web. The service is also available for purchase so that it can be deployed independently within IT enterprises. Due to the rigorous application of the Service Abstraction principle within Service Inventory B, the only information that is made available about Service B and Service C are the published service contracts. For Service D, the service contract plus a Service Level Agreement (SLA) are made available. The SLA indicates that Service D has a planned outage every night from 11 PM to midnight.

You are an architect with a project team building services for Service Inventory A . You are told that the owners of Service Inventory A and Service Inventory B are not generally cooperative or communicative. Cross-inventory service composition is tolerated, but not directly supported. As a result, no SLAs for Service B and Service C are available and you have no knowledge about how available these services are. Based on the service contracts you can determine that the services in Service Inventory B use different data models and a different transport protocol than the services in Service Inventory A . Furthermore, recent testing results have shown that the performance of Service D is highly unpredictable due to the heavy amount of concurrent access it receives from service consumers from other organizations. You are also told that there is a concern about how long Service Consumer A will need to remain stateful while waiting for a response from Service A . What steps can be taken to solve these problems?



Answer : B

Question 5

Service Consumer A sends a message with a business document to Service A (1), which writes the business document to Database A (2). Service A then forwards the business document to Service B (3), which writes the business document to Database B (4). Service B then responds to Service A with a message containing a failure or success code (5) after which Service A responds to Service Consumer A with a message containing a failure or success code (6). Upon receiving the message, Service Consumer A updates a log table in Database B (7). The log entry is comprised of the entire business document. Database A is dedicated to the Service A service architecture and Database B is a shared database.

There are two problems with this service composition architecture that you are asked to address: First, both Service Consumer A and Service B need to transform the business document data from an XML format to a proprietary Comma Separated Value (CSV) in order to write the data to Database B . This has led to redundant data format transformation logic that has been difficult to keep in synch when Database B changes. Secondly, Service A is an entity service that is being reused by several other service compositions. It has lately developed reliability problems that have caused the service to become unavailable for extended periods. What steps can be taken to solve these problems?



Answer : A

Question 6

Service Consumer A sends a message with a business document to Service A (1), which writes the business document to Database A (2). Service A then forwards the business document to Service B (3), which writes the business document to Database B (4). Service B then responds to Service A with a message containing a failure or success code (5) after which Service A responds to Service Consumer A with a message containing a failure or success code (6). Upon receiving the message, Service Consumer A updates a log table in Database B (7). The log entry is comprised of the entire business document. Database A is dedicated to the Service A service architecture and Database B is a shared database.

You are told that the database updates performed by Service A and Service B must be either both successful or they cannot happen at all. The database update performed by Service Consumer A must happen after it is given the outcome of the database updates performed by Service A and Service B . Given that Service Consumer A must also update Database B as part of this service composition architecture, how is it possible to fulfill these requirements?



Answer : D

Question 7

Service Consumer A sends Service A a message containing a business document (1). The business document is received by Component A, which keeps the business document in memory and forwards a copy to Component B (3). Component B first writes portions of the business document to Database A (4). Component B writes the entire business document to Database B and then uses some of the data values from the business document as query parameters to retrieve new data from Database B (5). Next, Component B returns the new data back to Component A (6), which merges it together with the original business document it has been keeping in memory and then writes the combined data to Database C (7). The Service A service capability invoked by Service Consumer A requires a synchronous request-response data exchange. Therefore, based on the outcome of the last database update, Service A returns a message with a success or failure code back to Service Consumer A (8). Databases A and B are shared and Database C is dedicated to the Service A service architecture.

There are several problems with this architecture: The business document that Component A is required to keep in memory (while it waits for Component B to complete its processing) can be very large. Especially when Service A is concurrently invoked by multiple service consumers, the amount of runtime resources it uses to keep this data in memory can decrease the overall performance of all service instances. Additionally, because Database A is a shared database that sometimes takes a long time to respond to Component B, Service A can take a long time to respond back to Service Consumer A . Currently, Service Consumer A will wait for a response for up to 30 seconds after which it will assume the request to Service A has failed and any subsequent response messages from Service A will be rejected. What steps can be taken to solve these problems?
