17 leading experts of the SOA community from around the world have published the SOA Manifesto.
The aim of the manifesto and its authors is, based on the experience of the past few years, to present the goals of SOA and to formulate the fundamental values and principles into understandable and discussible statements.
The creation of the manifesto took place during a three-day workshop. During this time, the individual authors presented their suggestions on value systems and principles. In the following process, the suggestions were gradually consolidated.
