An Approach to Model, Configure and Apply QoS Attributes to Web Services
Service-Oriented Architectures has become a commonly accepted solution for integrating enterprise applications around the globe. As the SOA environment grows, its complexity and the complexity of modelling, configuring and applying quality of service attributes to it increases. Though there are some tools supporting these activities, they are either limited to certain quality of service domains or dependent to specific development environments. In this paper, the authors elaborate a concept for managing quality of service attributes for Web services. In particular, their approach covers the modelling of arbitrary quality attributes based on a meta-model for quality attributes.
