    Hi,

    I once saw a recommendation on that book:
    http://www.packtpub.com/getting-started-with-oracle-soa-suite-11g-r1/book

    You can also read a lot under oracle docs:
    http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E23943_01/index.htm

    SOA is not a technology stack it is an architectural approach to service enabling capabilities within a business. Oracle Funsion Middleware is Oracles implementation of a tool set that is designed to help implement SOA.

    There are plenty of guides to Oracle SOA Suite and OSB, but I would read more around what SOA actually is, what it aims to do etc. There are many books that cover this.

    You can then decide on which implementation best suits your requirements (Oracle IMO is the best currently available). Imagine you learnt Java without learning the principals of OO programming, you could end up with one class doing everything. The same applies to SOA, understand the principals first.
