CASES OF SOFTWARE SERVICE DESIGN IN PRACTICE

Susanne Patig

Abstract

During the last years, several approaches for the design of software services in service-oriented architectures (SOA) have been proposed. Often these approaches are too rough or too academic to provide guidance for real world SOA projects. Moreover, since the existing SOA design approaches are often not sufficiently validated, their successfulness in practice can be doubted. The research presented here aims at learning from successful SOA projects. Two cases of such projects are described. In the cases similarities show up that are distinct from existing SOA design approaches (mainly the purely academic ones) and, thus, point to necessary enhancements of these approaches.
