The Service Orientated Architecture Hub

The SOA Hub website provides a handy tool for all things SOA. They have a browsable list of available web services and provide tools to publish and test your own custom services.

The detail for each published web service includes the average response time, costs, provider and service details and links to test the service.

Some of the web services of particular interest (here in the UK) are:

  • Credit card verifier (verify credit card checksums for valid Visa, MasterCard, American Express etc.);
  • Dun & Bradstreet Business Credit Check (perform low risk credit assessments and pre-screen prospects with D & B’s core credit evaluation data);
  • Currency rate converter (perform interactive foreign exchange rate calculations, using current currency rates updated every 10 minutes);
