Open Healthcare Framework (OHF) Project SODA, Device Kit, & Service Activator Toolkit
Service-Oriented Device Architecture (SODA) is an initiative to standardize and simplify the integration of devices with enterprise solutions by introducing a services-based programming model. SODA leverages existing and emerging standards from both the embedded-device and IT domains to provide well-defined interfaces for hardware devices to a service-oriented architecture (SOA).
SODA’s goal is to allow developers to interact with sensors and actuators just as business services are used in today’s enterprise SOAs. Reusing and combining SODA services to address changing business priorities has applicability across many industries including healthcare, military, and RFID.
Device Kit and Service Activator Toolkit are core framework components that support the development and runtime environment of SODA services.
