SOA 2.0

Bookmarks
According to an Infoworld article, Gartner and Oracle, not content with the SOA concept, have created "SOA 2.0" as a label for a more advanced SOA approach. According to Gartner analyst Yefim Natis, the most important distinction between the two is that SOA 1.0 is client/server-driven, while SOA 2.0 is event-driven.

The notion of a new term was not universally greeted with enthusiasm. "I'm shocked, SHOCKED to see Gartner promoting new buzzwords just as the world starts to get a handle on the previous generation of their buzzwords." wrote Microsoft's Mike Champion in a posting to the Yahoo! SOA group.

    Heck, that's the thing about buzzwords... they're new! The old buzzwords lose their, well, buzz. And we need new ones all the time, or we go into NEWS deprivation, lol :-)

    Just think, wikipedia would totally stagnate without new buzzwords! lol

  • SOA and Web 2.0 Not playing well together

    On the surface SOA and Web 2.0 would be a perfect fit - Ajax from Web 2.0 consumes the XML offered by SOA , all in the clients browser.

    Problem is , due to (good) restrictions in the browser about javascript calling 3rd party websites, you need to proxy the SOA available through your own web server.

    Not only does this add traffic to your web server, but you might as well consider other approaches (e.g. convert your SOA info into JSON Javascript objects on your web server) to take advantage of the fact you have to proxy anyway.

  • SOA is not a product!

    Gee, I wonder when the first bundled SOA Product will appear? This is not good news...SOA is an architecture approach that can be implemented in many different ways and many different levels, be in event-driven, web-service-based, client-server based, etc. I certainly will not be using the versioned term. SOA is SOA.

    No, it's not. SOA is not an architecture approach, since it's not even well defined yet. It's a buzzword which is thrown onto nearly everything, so means nothing. SOA 2.0 = 2 X 0 = 0.

    Actually John, I was being sarcastic when I said "SOA Product". It is a frustration born of having technology concepts wrapped into products, and hence having the technology defined by the product (as opposed to the other way around). Fortunately SOA has quite a big community following (see CBDi), so I can't imagine this "SOA 2.0" stuff being taken too seriously.
