Podcast: What is SOA?

Listen to this 10 minute audiocast on your computer, your iPod or your favorite MP3 player.

As an end-user, you are probably very familiar with service-oriented architecture (SOA). If you've ever purchased something online and one computer program talked to another computer program to verify that the item you requested was in stock, you've entered the world of service-oriented architecture. Quite simply, SOA specifies how two computing entities will interact when working together. According to the Gartner Group, by 2008, more than 60 percent of companies will use service-oriented architecture as "the guiding principle" when creating important or mission-critical applications.

In this segment, you will learn :

  • What SOA is
  • How SOA relates to other popular programming concepts
  • What programming standards and tools are commonly used to implement an SOA strategy
