The IBM® SOA Sandbox lets you increase your SOA skills through practical, hands-on experience with the IBM SOA entry points. These SOA entry points — people, process, information, reuse, and connectivity — are based upon real customer experiences and provide a simple way to get started with SOA. The SOA Sandbox makes it easy to learn about these entry points by providing a low-risk "tinker, test, and try" learning environment that's designed for enterprise architects, integration developers, and Web developers, but available to everyone.
The IBM SOA Sandbox provides a mix of full-version software trials and "try online" hosted environments where you can explore tutorials and get architectural guidance. You'll also find online demos, best practice documentation, and quick-start guides, all integrated into a low-risk, hands-on format that provides practical applications of SOA entry points to accelerate learning.
