Discovering Services During Design Phase Using UML
Service discovery has been recognized as an important aspect in the development of service centric systems, i.e., software systems which deploy web services. To develop such systems, it is necessary to identify services that can be combined in order to fulfill the functionality and achieve quality criteria of the system being developed. In this paper, the authors present a framework supporting Design Impelled and Ranked Services Detection (DIRSD) - that is the exploit of services in QOS bead ranking order, which can provide functionalities and satisfy properties and constraints of systems as specified during the software design phase. Detailed system design is a compulsion and an assumption about iterative design process that allows the formulation of design models of service-centric systems based on the exploited services.
