Design Framework for Domain-Specific Service Interfaces

George Feuerlicht, Sooksathit Meesathit

Abstract

Following the rapid evolution of Web services standards and technologies over the last three years many organizations are now beginning to make significant investments in the implementation of Web services applications. However, so far only limited attention has been paid to design issues for service-oriented applications. This paper describes a design framework for domain-specific service interfaces. The design framework provides guidance for transformation of a document-oriented message specification into a definition of service interfaces that can be used to generate Web services. We illustrate the design framework using an example based on the Open Travel Alliance (OTA) specification.
