Enterprises across the globe are using Web services technologies to realize Service Oriented Architecture (SOA). As the name suggests, SOA is a solution architecture revolving around services. Service is a standard-based interface encapsulating either a logical unit of functionality or data to facilitate need-based access to computational resources and promote their reuse. Successfully delivering on SOA initiatives frequently involves trading partners, suppliers, and customers.
