I can’t believe my colleague Nick Gall has not blogged on his recent research note on Web Oriented Architecture (WOA). See Tutorial: Web-Oriented Architecture: Putting the Web Back in Web Services. (Available for a fee to non Gartner clients).
Dan Sholler and I also contributed but Nick certainly is the brains behind it. Nick coined the term WOA about two years ago and now has finally definitively documented WOA as an architecture sub-style of SOA that combines the principles of SOA with those of REST and the Architecture of the world wide web Vol 1. It was worth the wait. Hats off to Nick, great work here.
For the record, I wanted the title to be “Web Oriented Architecture: Bringing the Shareability and Adaptability of the Web to SOA” 🙂
