Service-oriented architecture, Web-based application, meta-model, and UML


With the wide acceptance of Web-based technologies, modeling Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) is essential for service-oriented development. This paper proposes an approach to meta-model SOA by using the notations of the Unified Modeling Language (UML). On the basis of generic component-based modeling techniques, the notion of service component is adapted for describing the fundamental building block in SOA and its meta-model is identified as well. Moreover, we define the meta-model of SOA and provide its corresponding service-oriented development progress. At the same time, the case of the Supply-Chain Management System (SCMS) is specified to illuminate the usage of our method.
