Opinari #16 Posted: SOA and the Reality of Reuse
Wednesday, August 30, 2006
Will software reuse really be much easier with SOA? I'd like to believe the answer is yes, but my experience so far suggests otherwise. The latest issue of my Opinari newsletter, available here
, explains why.
I'd like nothing more than to be wrong about this. After all, it's still relatively early days for SOA, and some organizations have seen successful service-based reuse. Still, the overall picture so far isn't especially encouraging. The inevitable move to services brings plenty of benefits, but I'm becoming doubtful that widespread reuse of business logic will be among them.
