Perhaps we need a SOA Meta-Reference Model over all of these :)

Rebekah et al:

I think if anything, the CBDI article may have misstated the intent.  David Mayo was at the event in VA earlier this week and is aware of the Reference model.  Lawrence Wilkes is of course a member of the TC too and has said kind things about the RM.

The Reference Model was never intended to the the singular point of reference that the entire industry had to agree with, but it does give them a point of reference.  As such, I think the article tries to balance the model with other work to see where alignment is (although I have to state I have not read it).

Dave – anything to add?

I receive the monthly newsletter from CBDi and usually find much useful and insightful information.  I was disappointed to receive this month's newsletter with the following headline "in Search of a Common SOA Language."  The article starts out with "we believe that a widely accepted reference model for SOA will accelerate the take up of SOA, since tool vendors and practitioners will have a more solid and common base to work from."

As part of the reference model landscape, the following sources were analyzed:
W3C Web Services Architecture
OASIS SOA-Reference Model
IBM UML 2.0 Profile for Software Services
OpenGroup Open SOA Ontology
UK Ministry of Defence Ministry of Defence Architectural Framework Metamodel
Everware-CBDi "A Meta Model for Service Architecture and Engineering"

I'm working through the article in a bit more depth today....but would welcome a discussion on this list on the validity of the strengths and weaknesses that were identified.
