2008-08-22 Friday

The common perception of what SOA means has changed rapidly within the last few years. As an example, this article by Qusay H. Mahmoud, in April 2005, illustrates how SOA was originally imagined to be primarily a Web Services based approach...Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) and Web Services: The Road to Enterprise Application Integration (EAI).
