Hi All,

Is there anyone who shows interests in this week's giveaway - Service-Oriented Architecture : Concepts, Technology, and Design?

I am wondering who should buy this book, architects, programmers, even non-IT professionals?


Doug.

The impression I get is that SOA is a high-level hand-waving and fuzzy diagrams on the whiteboard repackaging of many existing ideas such as SOAP/WSDL/UDDI. I would love to be proved wrong on this.

A lot of people are looking at SOA as an attempt to re-market Web services. From the research we've done, there is every indication that SOA is shaping into a legitimate architectural model that separates itself from past distributed architectures through a distinct design paradigm called service-orientation. Although the popularity of Web services technologies like WSDL and SOAP are, to a large part, responsible for putting SOA into the limelight, they are not the only means of applying service-orientation. It's best to view SOA and service-orientation as providing a distinct approach for building enterprise solutions and the Web services technology set as the most popular implementation option for service-oriented solutions.
