Tracking the Elusive SOA Platform
ZapThink fears no loaded hype-word, and in this ZapFlash, we take on one of the gnarliest: platform. While there are many definitions of this term, the one that we focus on here is the notion of a runtime execution infrastructure that allows compiled and/or uncompiled code to run. However, this definition is tricky because Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) is not about the code, but rather the composition of Services into flexible processes. Naturally, there must exist some runtime infrastructure for Services to actually run, only now, we mean something different by the word “run.” SOA, after all, is enterprise architecture that leverages heterogeneity, so an SOA platform would have to be inherently platform-neutral.
