Does anyone know of a sound definition of the 'SOA architectural style'?
It would help a lot if one could compare the list of architectural
constraints that define the REST style with the set of architectural
constraints that define the SOA style.
Based on the architectural constraints it would be a lot easier to
discuss the properties they induce to SOA style systems.
