Subject: MSC SOA Reference Architecture

I won’t be around to listen to this but it is something to consider in context to our work.



AbstractThis CCISC Council presentation will outline the technical content of the MSC SOA RA, describe its current status, discuss the span of DoD programs that will be affected by it, what impacts are likely to be felt, and when.

MSC is a very positive example of effective stakeholder alignment across a broad range of the government.  The reference architecture is slated to become “the” standard for SOA in the DoD .

MSC & the MSC SOA RA Overview:

The Multi-Service SOA Consortium (MSC) is represented by a group of principals that represent important programs of record. Most of the different services represented in the MSC (Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, and DISA) have SOA reference implementations (RIs) of their own. The Navy’s was the ONR SOA RI.

MSC SOA RA Purpose:

This architecture description is intended to guide the development of a class of solution architectures and their associated implementations that provide functionality equivalent to that of the different SOA RIs. 

The MSC SOA RA serves as a standard architecture specification to which any number of implementations in addition to the SOA RIs might comply.  Any compliant implementation will support the deployment of service-based applications intended to execute on top of a SOA RI.  This makes it possible for multiple vendors/developers to provide competing underlying technology that adheres to the standard while encouraging continually improving value and performance.
