must now aspire to be used in a supply chain and be exposed to business partners who might compose, combine, and encapsulate them into new applications. Layer 1: Operational systems layer. You need some prescriptive steps to support your SOA life cycle; techniques for the analysis, design, and realization of services, flows, and components. This combination of functional business aspirations and leveraging of existing investments in legacy systems provide a potent solution to organizations that want to have quick wins and migrate their enterprise to a modern SOA. I then looked at the main activities of specification and realization of services.

Continuing the meta-auto-behaviour-change effort started here, Im publishing a few extracts from my PhD thesis as I write it up (mostly from the literature review, and before any rigorous editing) as blog posts over the next few months.
The idea of how architecture can be used to influence behaviour was central to this blog when it started, and so its pleasing to revisit.
That representation projects a sufficient illusion of objectivity, so that the involved parties could sufficiently relax and that the business transaction can eventually take place. Figure 4: Activities of service-oriented modeling Figure 4 shows the activities that are typically conducted by each of the roles of provider and consumer. Acknowledgments The author would like to acknowledge the valued input and feedback of the following esteemed colleagues and friends (no particular order Luba Cherbakov, Kerrie Holley, George Galambos, Sugandh Mehta, David Janson, Shankar Kalyana, Ed Calunzinski, Abdul Allam, Peter Holm, Krishnan Ramachandran, Jenny Ang, Jonathan. Here is a template for your SOA architecture document: Scope what area of the enterprise is this architecture for? On the other hand, an ESB provides a location independent mechanism for integration. So if SOA is not just about the products and standards that help realize it, for example through Web services, then what additional elements do you need to realize a SOA? What is your roadmap and vision, and how do you get there? Often you make the simplifying assumption that the subsystem has a one-to-one correspondence with the enterprise components. Layer 3: Services layer. Conclusion In this article, I started with the fundamentals of a service-oriented architecture, its layers, and the associated types of architectural decisions. Should you keep going in the same direction? Smaller-grained services - those that help realize the higher level of services - are identified by examining the existing legacy functionality and deciding how to create adaptors and wrappers, or componentizing the legacy to externalize the desired functionality often locked within the system.
