Java web services and SOA
Loosely coupled, modular applications are easier to maintain and upgrade than large intertangled legacy applications. Service-oriented architecture (SOA) provides a set of principles or governing concepts that help enterprise architects build better, less expensive applications. Taking an SOA approach means more than just building a lot of Java Web services. Solid SOA services are highly modular, with very few (if any) dependencies, and lend themselves directly to reuse. Still, the integration of services and existing application architecture into a cohesive Web services architecture can be very challenging. Enterprise architects may do well to consider adopting not only SOA service standards, but also SOA frameworks and/or Web services frameworks.
