I've noticed that the chasm is growing between the people who talk about SOA and the people who do SOA.
This is great news. For years it was just annoying evangelists. Now, the discussion has moved to the real questions. The troops are involved and they need to know how to do it. In many organizations this shift has already happened.
The media and sellers needs to catch up. The array of conferences and WebEx's on "Funding SOA" or "What is SOA?" need to come to an end. POSERS GET OUT OF THE WAY. It is time for the architects, designers, programmers and testers to actually DO IT.
