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

Stephan Cohen asks is SOA really an architecture? If you think about it, it really is a good question. In his post he cites a couple of good articles on the subject that seem to support the theory that nobody “really” knows what SOA is. Based on that then the question “Is it really an architecture?” is a valid question. The one line of the entire post that rings true is this:

Considering one can maintain the basic constructs of SO in an embedded, layered, or distributed system it seems clear that the base architecture is not effected by the inclusion or exclusion of services. 

This goes with what I was trying to say in my previous post, that SO should not be the basis of the architecture, but an extension of it.
