elemental links: InfoWorld SOA Exec Forum: Key Takeaways from Enterprise (Real) SOA Practitioners

This a good start on some lessons learned (high level) for SOA adoption and strategy. Two key points I liked: 1) Leverage mediation between your services and 2) No one is dynamically discovering and invoking services at run time. I've always thought the mediation was key to a successful integration architecture. The idea that each application would just talk to each other using standards without some mediation just seems a little far flung in the real world. And boy if you work for an IT shop that is rolling out integration services that are dynamically discovering and invoking each other at run time, wow.
