…and not something you buy!
If you only remember one thing from the BEJUG workshop on SOA then it should be this. And if you didn’t go to this workshop: make sure you can go next time, because it was worth it:-)
But seriously, all too often do people buy a product and then start to look at how to use it, say, to build a SOA (Service Oriented Architecture). This is like buying a car: would you get a rolls royce first, and then pick the road to drive it on? Or would you rather look at the road first, and then choose the best car for it? I would do the latter…
