All you ever wanted to know about Enterprise Services Repository and Services Registry Really!
Over the last few months, there has been a lot of activity around the Enterprise Services Repository and Services Registry. There has been a flurry of questions (at least one a day) that have been raised (and answered!) in the SDN Forum. In addition, there have been mails full of insightful and often tricky questions from consultants, partners and field colleagues showing extensive evaluation and usage of the tools.
As you prepare your long list of questions, trimmed and tailored to be pitted against session speakers and experts at the pod in TechEd – here’s something you might want to look at. We, SAP NW Product Management SOA Middleware, have put together the most frequently asked questions about the Enterprise Services Repository and registry into one long and detailed document which is published Repository-based Modeling and Design.
We have tried our best to make the document as comprehensive, relevant and simple as possible. The questions span the possible use cases of ES Repository and Registry (such as Service provisioning, Consumption, and Process Integration) and also focus on usual suspects (such as Lifecycle Management, Roles and authorizations and Standards support).
Here are some sample questions to pique your curiosity
- How is the Enterprise Services Repository different from the Services Registry?
- Can customers extend the classifications in the Service Registry? Can they add new classifications and/or new classification values?
- Does ES Repository support user roles and authorizations?
- Can I navigate from the Enterprise Services Repository to the documentation in the ES Workplace?
- What search options are available to search for services in the Services Registry?
- Can multiple PI and CE instances share a common ES Repository?
