WOA = SOA + REST + WWW

What is WOA?

"Web Oriented Architecture (WOA) is a style of software architecture that extends Service-oriented architecture to web based applications. WOA is also aimed at maximizing the browser and server interactions by use of technologies such as REST and POX." - Wikipedia

Then why the debate of SOA vs WOA? That's a question I've had for a while. The way I see it, WOA is SOA for the web isn't it? ...ok with added REST goodness.

In a recent interview, Gartner Vice President Nick Gall, who is credited with first describing Web-oriented architecture (WOA), was asked to give us, the less enlightened, the bottom line about the WOA versus SOA debate.

Interesting read.
