SOA Source Book

Free SOA Source Book

The “SOA Source Book” is a collection of source material for use by enterprise architects working with Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA). The SOA Source Book will help enterprise architects to use SOA effectively.


It consists of material that has been considered and in part developed by The Open Group’s SOA Working Group. The SOA Working Group is engaged in a work program to produce definitions, analyses, recommendations, reference models, and standards to assist business and information technology professionals within and outside of the Open Group to understand and adopt SOA. The source book does not represent the final output of that work program, which will be published as a collection of Open Group Standards and Guides. It is an interim publication, and its content will not necessarily be reflected in the final output.
