AN OVERVIEW OF THE OSTRA FRAMEWORK FOR THE TRANSITION TO SOA

Abstract

Service-Oriented Architecture is an emerging paradigm to build applications as a collection of services that can be coordinated to provide flexible applications. At its full potential, the development of services is considered from the perspective of the enterprise to deliver services that can be reused across applications and provide flexible solutions. However, the achievement of an enterprise-wide SOA is challenging, as it remains unclear how organizations should evolve towards the SOA paradigm. This paper discusses issues related to transition to SOA and provides an overview of OSTRA - a framework which provides a realistic approach for the transition to SOA, by considering short-term and long-term goals and balancing planning and management with practical experimentation.
