SynOA What? Syndicated Application Architectures Come of Age

by Kurt Cagle

In a recent interview with Rohit Khare, Director of CommerceNet Labs, Jon Udell may have been responsible for introducing a new meme into the noosphere that will be as important in its time as AJAX was in 2004. Rohit Khare gave an influential presentation describing ALIT, which utilized SOAP messages for transferring events between systems, but in the intervening years, his thinking has shifted to a new system based not upon SOAP but upon RESTful RSS and Atom feeds, for which he has coined the term Syndication Oriented Architecture, or SynOA.

Please post fewer thought provoking articles. I don't have time for this.

@Kurt,


AJAX in 2002? Maybe my mind is all mixed up (please set aside for a moment the fact that it is ;-)), but didn't the term AJAX hit center stage in 2005?


Beyond this, however, *GREAT* article! For what should be obvious reasons I can't help but agree this is where we are headed.

Good catch - actually I think Jesse Garrett (sp?) published his now famous article in late 2004, but yeah, 2005 was when AJAX exploded into consciousness.
