I personally believe that Event Driven Architecture (EDA) is the future.  I don’t believe that SOA can deliver many of the promises attributed to it without a heavy dose of EDA.  Of course, to make this work, we need standards.

And that is where the Object Management Group’s SOA SIG comes in.  OMG has put out a Request for Information (RFI) on Event Driven Architecture to get feedback from the general community.  If you are passionate about SOA, I strongly suggest you start with Brenda Michelson’s excellent blog post on this RFI and go from there. 

Time is short.   If you wish to contribute, start today.
