SOA What?

Stefan Tilkov,

Rich Turner and Radovan Janecek going back and forth about the definition of SOA … very interesting.

While I’m not entirely sure that an SOA absolutely must include a registry as one of its component, I’m sure it doesn’t need an ESB — in fact I insist that the need for a central infrastructure component is exactly what we want to avoid with the whole SOA idea.
