An event-based solution that uses events to convey information to a monitoring tool is well suited to implementing a non-intrusive monitoring infrastructure. This enables an SOA system's stakeholders to observe the system aspects of interest to them. However, implementation of SOA today, let alone the monitoring infrastructure, is a complex task due to the heterogeneous environment consisting of multiple technologies, platforms and components. The authors propose an approach for implementing such an event-based SOA monitoring infrastructure, that introduces a dedicated event view model and an eventing domain-specific language in a model-driven framework.
