OOP is an architecture based on interacting objects which have both data and behavior.

SOA is an architecture based on a collection of functions which can be invoked by clients. With web services, the functions are XML based.

OOP can be used to implement SOA.

If you go to www.google.com you can find out a lot of information on this topic.

The difference between SOA and distributed objects is the distributed objects are optimized for a client/server scenario consisting of a single application.

"object-oriented programming" is a style of programming. It does not describe software architecture.

"service-oriented architecture" pertains to both a business strategy and a service-based software architecture design.

There are many different ways to program in an object-oriented fashion.

There are many different ways to design a service-oriented architecture.

A service-oriented architecture can be partially implemented with object-oriented software.
