Standards Work on SOA Kicks Off

SCA could be even more important than WS-BPEL 2.0, as it aims to apply SOA principles to the design of applications themselves. It could also turn the Java platform into a true standard, freeing customers from dependence on a single vendor. It has attracted the support of all the major Java players as well as much of the SOA industry, so it will definitely be supported.

The vendor-backed Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards (OASIS) disclosed plans this week to create a new group to advance and promote SOA (service-oriented architecture) standards development.

The Open Composite Services Architecture (Open CSA) initiative will focus its work on the Service Component Architecture (SCA) and Service Data Objects (SDO) specifications without requiring developers to pay royalties to access those standards.
