View-Based and Model-Driven Approach for Reducing the Development Complexity in Process-Driven SOA
Source: Vienna University of Technology
In process-driven, Service-Oriented Architectures (SOA), process activities invoke services to perform the various tasks of the process. As the number of elements involved in business process architecture, such as processes, process activities, and services, grows, the complexity of process development also increases along with the number of the elements' relationships, interactions, and data exchanges - and quickly becomes hardly manageable. In addition, process-driven SOA models address different stakeholders, such as business experts and technical experts, who require different kinds of information for their work.
