Take a deeper dive on the AJAX-SOA match-up

Summary:The goal of the rich Internet application (RIA) model is to provide lightweight yet easy to consume applications that are served primarily from services borne of a SOA.

Fellow ZDNet blogger Dion Hinchcliffe -- who also edits Web 2.0 Journal, is authoring a Web 2.0 book for Addison-Wesley, and in his spare time is co-founder and CTO of enterprise architecture consultancy Sphere of Influence, Inc. -- joins me this week for a BriefingsDirect podcast on AJAX and SOA.

The goal of the rich Internet application (RIA) model is to provide lightweight yet easy-to-consume applications that are served primarily from services borne of a SOA. The especially appealing angle on this for me is the economic case-use benefits. But Dion has a lot more to say about the technical advantages, including the positive implications for extending SOA apps to mobile devices. Take a listen, and let us know how you found it valuable.
