Good one Tom. It is a marketing jargon as far as I am concerned.

SOA, in Dutch, stands for "Seksueel Overdraagbare Aandoening", which translates to "Sexually Transmitted Disease".

Sounds like a racist sling.

You are supporting and promoting this?


Nothing else to blog about?

hmmm, interesting observation.

Nope, nothing else to blog about.


guess amazon is in on the conspiracy too.

I did not realize that word was attached to a specific race, I sort of thought it was a dig at "the not too bright" or a funny way to make light fun of people. Maybe even poke fun at a loved one.

Wow indeed - back at you.

Wow, sounds like a very well-known anonymous commenter. Is it possible?

This caused hysterical laughter in the Database Team. Hysterical in that our dev team is fracturing our central db into stand alone db's with the aim that everything will magically be integrated using SOA/WS.

Now call me old fashioned but most companies try to centralise db services - our company is going the other way.

To quote tom - "Run, don't walk, Run."

Brilliant - especially funny after attending the London Fusion Middleware conference a couple of weeks back, which was totally SOAtastic :)

Last poster - I think you *missed* the point.

Consider this page

ctl-f for "General Information About Object Technologies"

then, look at the dates on that page, 1993, 1994, 1995.

Sounds a lot like something, but the terms were different - CORBA (instead of SOA), IDL (instead of WSDL) - but, sounds like a song I've heard time and again...

SOA is a technology
Not a religion, not an end all be all
Not the only way
Not necessarily always the right way
Not the last way that'll be invented.

It also works if you replace "SOA" with "XML"...
