would never see widespread use outside the firewall - as well as
explaining the technical reasons why - for over eight years now. And
hey, whad'ya know; despite hundreds of millions (billions?) of dollars
invested by everybody who matters in the industry, it's not seeing
widespread use outside the firewall.
No koolaid required, just knowledge of *both* Internet scale systems
and software architecture.
I've seen your discussion regards to OTA.
Do you have or know where I can find an OTA server example built in .Net?
Where can I find the OTA wsdl to import? With provided OTA stuff I can only find the isolated .xsd files. Isn't there an OTA wsdl to get imported?
Thanks in advance

the person writing the original article was, in fact, talking about
orchestration rather than choreography.
