I'd Rather Be Coding Jay Glynn thinking out loud.

I read in SD Times today that OASIS is going to define SOA for us. From the article:

Just what is and what is not part of a service-oriented architecture is the subject of the latest work the Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards (OASIS) is pursuing

Another quote:

 Writing a specialization of SOA for electronic business was going to get difficult because a generalized definition of SOA didn’t exist

They are comparing this process to describing the parts of a car. Where the parts are and how they relate to each other in the overall function of the car. They said the reference model should be completed by the end of the calendar year. I feel so much better now. We'll finally have someone that tell us exactly what SOA is (and how the driveshaft is connected to the axel).
