Hi all,
Last week I got a chance to attend the launch of Microsoft's VS2005,
SQLServer 2005 and Biztalk 2006 products. What I saw was their approach
to SOA network tooling (although SOA is not specifically their message)
and I was quite impressed. There could be some lessons for this group,
especially in the SOAN deployment sub-project, in what that particular
company have done.

When you sit down to build a SOA, it is visualized in three separate
diagrams. The first is a logical view of the SOA participants and their
relationships with each other. This view is aimed squarely at the
individuals who are architecting the SOA. There's no clutter, just a
selection of boxes interconnected. The second is a deployment view of
the SOAN. It contains a visualization of the available deployment
resources (i.e. containers) as well as a means to construct logical
groupings of containers (i.e. hosts) that share particular policies
(such as using a firewall). There is tooling support for performing
the act of binding from the logical diagram to the deployment diagram.
The third diagram is geared to testing - I don't have much information
on that one, since I was busy scribbling down details about the first
two :)

Obviously a verbal description is not adequate - I've put in a request
for screenshots of the tooling and will share once I get hold of them.
