Abstract:
Building and composing the components of a service oriented application can be a challenge and complex bespoke solutions are commonplace. The Service Component Architecture (SCA), a collection of specifications currently being standardized at OASIS, aims to address this problem. SCA provides a technology neutral assembly capability for composing applications from business services developed using many different technologies.
