Diary of a Fence Sitting SOA Geek
Oct 13, 2008
In this presentation, recorded at QCon London 2008, Mark Little explains the history of SOAP/WSDL/WS-*-based web services and RESTful HTTP and shows that both approaches have their roles to play in any good architects toolkit. He elaborates on where possible convergence could, or should, occur within the industry.
Composite Software Construction
Composite Software offers a new level of granularity when compared to SaaS (Software as a Service). Composite Software is about enabling "right-sourcing", i.e. move (or keep) arbitrary small or large elements of functionality wherever it is the most cost effective to operate them, not just entire systems. Economically, "right-sourcing" is far more efficient than "outsourcing" and SaaS.
