Service Component Architecture (SCA) is not the sexiest sounding standard out there but it will be an important part of the next release of Oracle SOA Suite, providing a framework for describing the inter-relationships between components. I thought that Edwin K did a great job of positioning it in a recent blog entry - it takes SCA out of the ethereal and plants it firmly in the real world. I like to think of SCA as a wiring diagram for SOA components - Dave Chappell (Oracle) added his own thoughts in this blog entry.
