The paper proposes a metric based framework for evaluating service oriented architecture. Different models and metrics have been proposed in different perspective for evaluating service oriented architecture, but it has been recognized that the available models and metrics are insufficient. This paper gives a software standard based way to identify measurable attributes to propose metrics. This paper proposes four steps. In the first step the attributes of qualities and characteristics of services are identified from software and service standards. In the second step, sets of attributes for each quality and characteristic which are not having metrics are formed by comparing with the available metrics.
