SOA is the new COM. But this time the environment is better. There is development support in terms of Windows Communication Foundation. And there is better adoption, both camps (Java and .Net) have embraced it.
I've started programming when .net just came out and so I've never really used or understood COM or Ole deeply. But if i haven't misunderstood COM was trying to encourage reuse through componentization and Ole was built to enable applications to reuse components of other applications through either embedded usage or object invocation. So how does Ole relate to COM?
I also agree that SOA is definitely the new COM, it definitely has more chance to achieve what COM couldn't achieve. But I have this cloud of doubt that software reuse is ever really possible, when i say that i mean efficient and cost-effective software reuse.
I really enjoyed the video btw.
