...making SOA easy
At the Zend Conference, one of the highlights was a presentation by Graham Charters entitled “Web Services with SOA with the Service Component Architecture”. My dad told me years ago that web services would dominate the architecture of the future, and I tend to believe him, so I’m very glad to say that SCA makes exposing services (especially web services) ridiculously easy.
Real SOA - An overview of SCA and SDO
— A challenge facing many organizations is how to quickly and effectively react to frequent changes in business requirements, whilst improving productivity and reducing costs. To achieve this, you need a flexible infrastructure that can meet the demands of a changing marketplace and seize emerging opportunities. To address this challenge, Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) promotes an architectural approach that replaces rigid proprietary systems with heterogeneous, 'loosely-coupled' services. The Service Component Architecture (SCA), along with Service Data Objects (SDO), makes this architectural concept a reality and provides the programming model to build SOA solutions for agile businesses.
