With an advanced SOA platform, many of the so-called non-functional aspects of applications like quality of service parameters and security requirements can be taken over by the platform. The W3C recommendation WS-Policy offer a means to express these aspects by defining a framework for domain-specific policy vocabularies.
For any serious use of policies, adequate tooling is mandatory. This tutorial will introduce the policy handling capabilities provided by Eclipse STP, complete with a short introduction into the WS-Policy family of recommendations and some samples of advanced use-cases.Presentation part 1 (+/- 30 min)
