   RE: [xml-dev] Will The Real SOA Please Sit Down?

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Some do agree.  Consensus has a quality of reach.  One 
may inquire given some agreement, what is the strength 
of the agreement based on stability over time and 
numbers, kinds and types of processes that execute 
without error based on the agreement.   A term such 
as SOA labels a namespace but it isn't homogenous.  
Humans don't care as much as machines do about that. 
Machines don't care about the semantics, but humans do.
An ambiguous term enables the humans to exercise power 
over each other.  It's the choice of choices golem.

IMO, the strongest definition is the third item.

If no-one can agree what a term means, just stop using it.
