Top 10 Most Popular OTN SOA Articles

Service-oriented architecture has been a hot topic of late given the recent release Oracle SOA Suite 12.1.3 and related products. Against that backdrop I thought it would be interesting to do a little data diving to see which OTN technical articles on SOA were the most popular over the last 30 days.

The criteria were basic: any article currently available in the OTN SOA articles directory was eligible, and the list is based on total unique visits between June 11, 2014 and July 10, 2014.

Congratulations to the authors! And note that members of the Oracle ACE Program are very well-represented in this list.
