Re: WSA constraints

Anne, I agree 100%.  Web services written to SOAP 1.1 
services do have their own architecture, it's just that nobody's
written it down yet.

Well, sort of I'd say.  Software *has* an architecture, whether or not
somebody's written it down.

Absolutely.  But I thought we all agreed that we would start (i.e.
first draft) on documenting the architecture of SOAP 1.1 and WSDL 1.1
based Web services.  No?

In the interests of expediting this process, I'll refrain from getting
into that at this point.  But I'd like to ask you for a pointer to a
definition of what a service oriented architecture is.  From what I can
extract from the context in which the term is used, the Web already is
an SOA.
