In today’s world,implementing distributed systems that provide business value in a reliable fashion presents many challenges.We take many features for granted when developing nondistributed systems—features that can become issues when working with disparate distributed systems.Although some of these challenges are obvious (such as a loss of connectivity leading to data being lost or corrupted),for other aspects—such as tightly coupled systems—the dependencies between various system components make it cost prohibitive to make changes to meet the demands of the business. Business processes are quite often supported by systems that run on different platforms and technologies both within and outside of the organization.Service-oriented architecture (SOA)is a mechanism that enables organizations to facilitate communication between systems running on multiple platforms.
