Topological Functioning Model and Services Identification - An Approach for Services Identification from a Topological Functioning Model

Gundars Alksnis, Erika Asnina, Uldis Sukovskis

Abstract

To support the initial elicitation of software services, IT industry organizations have proposed various Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) specifications and frameworks. However most of them do not assume specific approach of SOA construction and what the service model should consist of. There are also approaches that suggest various practices for services identification, but the issue of proper services modeling still remains open. In this paper we propose an approach for services identification from a Topological Functioning Model, therefore enabling another viewpoint which fosters the quality of identified services.
