  • A Service is Not an Object or Component

    Continuing on the SOA front, I've recently been reading a version of the forthcoming book "Programming WCF Services" by Juval Lowy.  While a great book on WCF internals, I was thunderstruck by Juval's assertion that (services are the) "next evolutionary step in the long journey from functions to objects to components to services".  I so strongly disagreed, that I left some notes to that effect in the notes to him and the publisher.
