Web-oriented architecture (WOA) is a style of software architecture that extends service-oriented architecture (SOA) to web-based applications, and is sometimes considered to be a light-weight version of SOA. WOA is also aimed at maximizing the browser and server interactions by use of technologies such as REST and POX.
- Axiom 0: Universality 1 - Any resource anywhere can be given a URI.
- Axiom 0a: Universality 2 - Any resource of significance should be given a URI.
- Axiom 1: Global scope - It doesn't matter to whom or where you specify that URI, it will have the same meaning.
- Axiom 2a: sameness - a URI will repeatably refer to "the same" thing.
- Axiom 2b: identity - of URIs clears up the vagueness of 2a and is that - the significance of identity for a given URI is determined by the person who owns the URI, who first determined what it points to.
- Axiom 3: nonunique - URI space does not have to be the only universal space.
