The SOA Manifesto

Taking a leaf from the Agile playbook, a group of SOA thought leaders has put together the SOA Manifesto, a succinct list of SOA principles and preferences to guide Service Oriented Architecture. Great work!

(I could comment further, but it speaks for itself).

Thanks for the endorsement.

Alas the Manifesto did not tackle any relationship between PROCESS ORIENTATION and SERVICE ORIENTATION. The only reason this was not done in the context of the Manifesto was time and focus. So great work – amazing to get it done in time but not yet complete. Look to the blogsphere for more ……

Hi Steve,

thanks for the comment. I noticed your post on this very subject!

I can understand why the SOA Manifesto would choose to keep the scope narrow. Getting core principles of Service Orientation is a great start and long overdue.
