DEAR VISITOR , YOU ARE WATCHING : What is a SOA ( Service Oriented Architecture ) ? | SOA Video Tutorial .
The Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) is a design to overcome former
limitations by disaggregating databases, communications and applications
into separate “services”. Under such an arrangement each of the major
components of a corporate system is a stand-alone module constructed with
interfaces that are subject to international standards. In SOA any
component can call on services by any other component over a shared
network. In the case of global commerce, the interconnectivity is managed
via Internet using agreed protocols.
