Suppose If I have  silverlight application which consumes data through WCF.

The silverlight application is consuming data that is it is using data from wcf, but wpf would be getting data from some database source or some xml file.

So in that case I would call this application as 3 tier architecture where presentation tier is silverlight application, business tier is wcf (for providing data) and database tier is your server itself.

Hello N Sri,

The question you asked about and the answer I provided are totally contradicting.

Because when you ask about SOA I tried to read about it with link to Silverlight Applications. And there I came up with an article that describe that WCF are used as Services for providing data from database to Silverlight Application. And this all is possible because of SOA (Service Oriented Architecture)..

So concluding to the above question, I would call it as Service Oriented Architecture because WCF application is behaving as service for Silverlight application. Seems Microsoft is changing its own definition of Architecture differently in different scenario.

Please write back for more discussion. I am interested to share and learn.

Regards,
VSS
