Agent-Based Framework for Implementing and Deploying of SOA

Alexandru Butoi, Gabriela Andreea Morar, Andreea Ilea


In distributed organizational and business information systems’ contexts, Service-Oriented Architectures (SOA) provide standard-based and protocol independent solutions. Despite the advances in SOA models and design methodologies, the implementation and deployment of service choreographies are still made in an un-unified manner using the existing tools. We present a three-layered framework model based on deployment agents, which allows designing and implementing service choreographies in a unified and reusable manner using the Object-Oriented Paradigm concepts. Deployment agents contain automatic mechanisms for service deployment which will ease the management of service references involved in service compositions at development time.
