Hello Mark Hansen,

First of all i would like to congratulate you for promoting "SOA using web services", and giving us a chance to win a copy of it.

I wanted to clarify some of my doubts related to SOA:

1) how is web services related to SOA, and since web services is a very old concept used by the indusdry while SOA is a new concept, so how do you think web services will be able to solve out SOA purposes.

WS are one way to implement a SOA; arguably the only viable way right now that has sufficient infrastructure in place for complex environments. The relationship between WS and SOA was discussed recently in this thread.

Thanks! Good luck winning the book

I agree with Ulf that Web Services is the only viable means for implementing SOA. Please also see this post.
