Is it more efficient to develop web services in all SOA projects in the same way?

When developing any kind of software, how its developed boils down to certain factors like changing requirements and project scope. However, from one SOA project to another, these factors seem to be more or less the same regardless of whether BPM is involved or not. If that is the case, would it not be more efficient and effective if all web services for SOA were developed using the same development process.

I'm actually carrying out a study at the moment to find this "perfect" developent process, a kind of one size fits all as it seems that all developments of web services are dependent on similar factors.

I've got a questionnaire available at and its available until 27 July 2010. If you'd like to contribute your opinions and experiences, please feel free to answer the 10 questions (anonymously) that should take no longer than 5 minutes of your time.

What seems to be interesting is that many of the respondents share similar experiences relating to their SOA projects, and the development of web services - suggesting that web service development is pretty much the same across the board. The interesting part is that 2 particular issues that most respondents seem to have experienced aren't addressed in many of the ways in which web services are developed, looks as though there is a more efficeint way that could apply to all SOA projects. If you're inerested, or would like to contribute, please feel free to offer your perspectives. The closing date for the survey has now been extended to 29th July 2010.
