The question whether services can provide a solution for software integration and interoperability problems has been debated. Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) now seems to become the most widely used software integration framework. Web services provide the predominant platform for the integration of information systems. A model-driven solution for the development of connectors for information system architectures shall be presented. While most model-driven approaches focus on software components, the authors investigate system integration through a model-driven connector development approach for the context of service-oriented architectures. Maintainability and automation requirements are discussed in relation to integration and architecture aspects.
