I finally got a chance to start looking at the blog posts that have been piling up in my Newsgator for a few months now, and I was pleasantly surprised by probably the best thoughts on SOA I've seen in a long time. I'm really glad that Rocky's fighting the good fight on this one, and he's been consistent, too. Another, more thorough commentary on the subject is provided by a good friend of mine, Tom Fuller, in his article last year on The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly of Service-Oriented Architecture.
The bottom line, IMO, is that working towards SOA is a good thing, but we have to be very cautious and extremely deliberate in how we get there. I think most good architects know this, but we have to get the message out there and overcome the hype to minimize the trough of despair.
The opinions expressed herein are solely my own personal opinions, founded or unfounded, rational or not, and you can quote me on that.
Thanks to the good folks at dasBlog!
