C P 4W S - A METHOD FOR DESIGNING AND DEVELOPING SYSTEMS BASED ON WEB SERVICES

Zakaria Maamar, Djamal Benslimane, Chirine Ghedira

Abstract

This paper presents C P 4W S (standing for C ontext and P olicy for W eb S ervices), which is a context-based and policy-driven method for the design and development of Web services-based systems. Although Web services constitute an active area of research, very little has been achieved for the benefit of those who are responsible for modeling and developing such systems. To address this lack of support, we developed C P 4W S that consists of several steps ranging from user needs identification to Web services behavior specification. A running scenario that illustrates the use of C P 4W S is also discussed in the paper.
