Architectural Handling of Management Concerns in Service-Driven Business Processes

Ahmed Al-Ghamdi, José Luiz Fiadeiro

Abstract

To be effective and meet organisational goals, service-driven applications require a clear specification of the management concerns that establish business level agreements among the parties involved in given business processes. In this paper, we show how such concerns can be modelled explicitly and separately from other concerns through a set of new semantic primitives that we call management laws. These primitives support a methodological approach that consists in extracting management concerns from business rules and representing them explicitly as connectors in the conceptual architecture of the application.
