Service Oriented Architecture (SOA)

In service-oriented architectures (SOA), application components provide services through a communication protocol over a network. A service comprises a stand-alone unit of functionality available only via a formally defined interface. A service can be accessed remotely, acted upon and updated independently. The function provided by a service is generally the integration of distributed, separately maintained and deployed software components.
