SCA Implementations on other platforms

In IBM, I used to work in Java world, and now I am working on .NET platform. Your book is dedicated to SCA Tuscany Java implementation. Is the SCA mature enough (in my time in IBM it was not :cry, so one can implement it in the .NET platform with C#? Is there any documentation that can be helpful in this regard.
Many thanks in advance for your help.
Best Regards,

It's definitely possible to implement SCA for other languages and platforms, such as C# and .NET. There's no official SCA specification for this, so someone who wanted to do it would have to adapt the current SCA specs to the C# and .NET environment.

Building the equivalent of Tuscany for C# and .NET would be quite a bit of work, and so far no-one's been willing to invest the time and effort to make it happen.

The good news is that it's easy to integrate C#/.NET code into an SCA/Tuscany application by using WSDL/Web Services as the interoperability protocol. You just need to build a web service using C#/.NET, generate WSDL for this web service, import the WSDL into an SCA component definition, and invoke the C#/.NET web service from the SCA component. We've tested this scenario in Tuscany, and there's a Tuscany demo showing how to do it.
I agree. Here's the link:
