Where do relational databases systems fit to provide reliability, scalability and resilience to loosely-coupled world of Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA)? Fueled by XML, CLR hosting, integration with Visual Studio 2005, native web-services, asynchronous execution, reliable messaging and query notifications (to mention just a few key technologies), Service-Oriented Data Architecture (SODA) has been an important theme of the upcoming SQL Server 2005 release.

Be sure to attend Paul Flessner's keynote tomorrow morning. (There will be a fun demo you'll get to see there). Also on Wednesday join David Campbell, the general manager of the SQL Server Engine group and Gerald Hinson who leads the development of the Service Broker feature to learn about SODA.
