Hi ranchers, I never heard SOA before xml web services came and why these two terms are becoming syn. So my question is can we implement SOA with xml web services. if yes, How. what technologies and patterns to use? [ November 15, 2006: Message edited by: vikram choudhary ]

SOA and web services are not synonymous - even though it sometimes is portrayed that way. Web services are an enabling technology for SOA. Just because you are using web services does not mean you are creating an SOA.
Bottom line: Few businesses can really justify the implementation of a full-blown SOA. Many business can benefit from using web services to achieve narrow aspects of SOA, like application/service reuse and loose coupling (something that good Enterprise Application Integration (EAI)was trying to accomplish all along Enterprise Integration Patterns Catalog).
