It's an approach to building software systems that is based on loosely coupled components (services) that have been described in a uniform way and that can be discovered and composed. A Web service represents one important approach to realizing an SOA. This chapter focuses on Web services as a realization of the service-oriented platform and introduces the specifications that add to it.
