"This document specifies the OASIS Reference Architecture for Service
Architecture. It follows from the concepts and relationships defined in the
OASIS Reference Model for Service Oriented Architecture.  While it remains
abstract in nature, the current document describes one possible template upon
which a SOA concrete architecture can be built.

"Our focus in this architecture is on an approach to integrating business
the information technology needed to support it. The issues involved with
integration are always present, but, we find, are thrown into clear focus
business integration involves crossing ownership boundaries.


"The Reference Architecture has three main views: the Business via Service
which lays the foundation for conducting business in the context of Service
Oriented Architecture; the Realizing Services view which addresses the
requirements for constructing a Service Oriented Architecture; and the Owning
Service Oriented Architecture view which focuses on the governance and
management of SOA-based systems."
