This chapter describes an approach to extending service oriented architecture (SOA) with mobile technologies (MT) resulting in what can be called mobile service oriented architecture (MSOA). Web services (WS) is a popular approach to business applications in the second Web generation (Web 2.0). Mobile technologies (MT) help people reach out and interact with each other anytime and anywhere, transcending time and location boundaries. MSOA brings together MT and WS to create opportunities for offering and consuming services over the wireless networks in Web 2.0 era and beyond. Furthermore, the intelligent convergence of mobile connectivity, network computing, open technology, open identity, and several such emerging technologies pave the way for newer and wider range of service-oriented business opportunities. The authors describe this MSOA model and an approach to its validation through an implementation framework in this chapter.
