I'm relatively new to this SOA stuff. The thing is I'm in a software company and my company develops a product that has a client(java) and a server (C++) and connects them through SOA. I would really love to understand how this is accomplished.
If anyone has any idea about these stuffs please add:).
Also, if possible, please provide any links to SOA related good content...
Let's not confuse web services with portlets, or mix it with some vendor-specific server like WebSphere. Instead, head over to the WebServicesFaq and read some of the introductory articles on both SOAP and REST. Also note that SOA is an architectural approach that transcends web services (which are but one way to implement SOA).
