BEA Systems, a world leader in enterprise infrastructure software, announced the results of an independent EMEA-wide survey of over 800 European developers. In the survey, Web services, message brokering and enterprise service bus were cited as the most useful technologies for developing, deploying and managing service-oriented architectures (SOA), with 69% of respondents stressing the importance of a messaging infrastructure that supports multiple protocols. The study also reveals the growing adoption of SOA across EMEA, with 60% of the respondents scheduled to deploy service-oriented architectures within the next six months.

"Central to this is a service-oriented approach which permeates all aspects of IT - but which starts with a reappraisal of application architecture."
