relevance of SOA and Web 2.0



I was wondering if anyone can help me with this problem:

I need to write a short comparative discussion addressing the relevance of SOA and Web 2.0 to this example and, if appropriate, any future work that would be needed to make them more relevant.

the example it refers to is the question we had before it:

A worked example that includes annotated screen shots of how VC (visual composer) can be used to build a WBIS (web based information system) using data from an SAP ECC system (which you can access via BAPI components).

For some reason i am just hitting a dead end - had anyone got any pointers or ideas of where i can start and what to include.

I've started this already, am i on the righty tracks?:


As much as there is a rift and difference of opinion in the technology community, the fact remains that both SOA and Web 2.0 are fundamentally built upon standard XML, however it is noted that web 2.0 is dismissed as a rather airy-fairy route into working on an enterprise level.

"The evangelists for SOA tend to dismiss Web 2.0 technologies as light-weight u201Ctoysu201D not suitable for the u201Crealu201D work of enterprises." (1)
