Service Oriented Architecture is one of the most widely accepted architectural approaches to building and integrating applications. Although the term was coined in 1994, the architectural approach wasn't widely accepted until a decade later. Today most large scale applications apply SOA in at least some part of their design. While the term may have been coined in 1994, the principles embraced by SOA existed long before then. Software development principles such as reuse, interoperability, standards compliance, and modularity have been used by software developers for decades.
