Is SOA the answer to everything? Perhaps not. Web oriented architecture (WOA) or SOA + WWW + REST, takes you several steps further by filling the blanks of SOA and helping you build an end-to-end complete web application. In addition to APIs, WOA identifies user interfaces and application state as first-class components of an architecture. Most of what we build today is actually WOA, though the abbreviation might not be that popular.
