ESOA changed to SOA?
currently I'm writing my diploma about ESOA. Today I visited the sdn.sap.com webpage and was wondering about the navigation. There, where a few days ago the ESOA-category could be found (I'm sure up to 99%), now the same category is named "Service-Oriented Architecture". Because of this I question myself if and why SAP gave up the label ESOA and now calls it simply SOA? And are there any newsposts or such things regarding to this? At least I can't find any..
I would be very happy about an answer to my Question.
P.S. Sorry about my broken english

This is correct, "E" or "Enterprise" will be removed from eSOA now and it will be hence forth referred as SOA.
However the existing contents or references to "ESOA" will not be changed specially in deliverables like Enterprise Services, Enterprise Service Repository ..; just that any new communications with respect to SAP messeging will happen using "SOA". This is applicable from September 2008 and the word "Enterprise" will be slowly phased out over time.
