Web Service (WS)-based integration is a broadly accepted technique to address the heterogeneity in current software systems. With regard to the growing complexity of state-of-the-art software engineering (SE) processes, Semantic WS (SWS) can be a strategy to manage the heterogeneous SE software tools and inherent cross-dependencies in an automated way. This… (More)
The inherent complexity of current software systems has reached a critical level. This affects the general deployment complexity in the form of a huge amount of varying non-functional requirements (NFRs). With regard to flexibility and maintenance, changes to software systems need to be automated in order to deploy different configurations of a system based… (More)
The growing complexity of software, combined with demands for greater productivity and shorter cycles, creates an increasing demand for more automation and integration within the software engineering (SE) domain. When viewed holistically, the heterogeneous nature, implicit feature cross-dependencies, and manual administration of the toolchain infrastructure… (More)
This document describes the specification of a flexible XML-based Domain-Specific Language (DSL) for Service Oriented Architectures (SOAs). This layer is called Service Language Layer (SLL) and is based on the previous Service Language (SL) specification.
