Web Oriented Architecture

Web Oriented Architecture (WOA) is a style of software architecture that extends service-oriented architecture (SOA) to web based applications, and is sometimes considered to be a light-weight version of SOA. WOA is also aimed at maximizing the browser and server interactions by use of technologies such as REST and POX.


Service-oriented architecture (SOA) is about analyzing the business to identify business areas and business processes. Services expose their capabilities through message interfaces. The services can then be choreographed or orchestrated to realize the business processes.


The goal of SOA is to increase the alignment between business and IT and achieve business agility to respond to changes quickly and efficiency. It is a way of sharing business functions in a widespread and flexible way. The universality of web services standards are implemented in platforms and products from all the major software vendors has made web services the most prevalent approach to implementing an SOA.

Why WOA?

Reusable | Interoperable | Scalable | Secure | Flexible | Cost Efficient
