Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA)
Posted Under: PHP
Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) is an architectural style whose primary goal is to achieve loose coupling or minimal dependency among interacting software agents. The idea of SOA departs significantly from that of object-oriented client server programming, which strongly suggests that you should bind data and its processing together. SOA introduces the concept of interacting software agents – service provider and service consumer. Service provider provides a service which the service consumer consumes. The provisioning of the service is over the Internet or Intranet.
