Enterprise applications support business activities in companies, so that they can manage complexity and be more effective. The service oriented architecture (SOA) concepts empower modern enterprises and provide them with flexibility and agility. These concepts nowadays expand towards the shop-floor activities, down to the device level. By implementing web services on the devices natively, we are able to push down at item level SOA concepts. In this work we focus on implementing web services on the SunSPOT wireless sensor nodes and coupling it with enterprise level services. The presented methods could be used as experimental platform to evaluate new SOA-based paradigm for factory automation and enterprise computing. The goal is to seamlessly integrate heterogeneous hardware on the shop floor and the business intelligence via the SOA approach.
