Exploring the Service-Oriented Architecture Pattern

  • Paul B. Monday

Abstract

Until Web Services became a reality, making applications communicate across the Internet was a serious challenge to application programmers. Predating Web Services are three techniques, each of which vied for programmer’s attention but none of which achieved ubiquity for communicating across the Internet:
  • You could choose to implement your services using a particular platform, such as the Java 2 Standard Edition (J2SE) with its Remote Method Invocation (RMI) capabilities as the mechanism for communication.

  • You could choose a heavier-weight standardized model, such as the Common Object Request Broker Architecture (CORBA).

  • You could roll your own service access and usage protocol.
