An approach for including business requirements to soa design

Ocaktürk, Murat
In this thesis, a service oriented decomposition approach: Use case Driven Service Oriented Architecture (UDSOA), is introduced to close the gap between business requirements and SOA (Service Oriented Architecture) design by including business use cases and system use cases into decomposition process. The approach is constructed upon Service Oriented Software Engineering (SOSE) modeling technique and aims to fill the deficits of it at the decomposition phase. Further, it aims to involve both business vision and Information Technologies concerns in the decomposition process. This approach starts with functional top-down decomposition of the domain. Then, business use cases are used for further decomposition because of their high-level view. This connects the business requirements and our SOA design. Also it raises the level of abstraction which allows us to focus on business services. Second step of the SOA approach uses system use cases to continue decomposition. System use cases help discovering technical web services and allocating them on the decomposition tree. Service oriented analysis also helps separating business and technical services in tightly coupled architecture conditions. Those two steps together bring quality in to both problem and solution domains.


Modeling of software as a service architectures and investigation on their design alternatives
Öztürk, Karahan; Doğru, Ali Hikmet; Department of Computer Engineering (2010)
In general, a common reference architecture can be derived for Software as a Service (SaaS) architecture. However, while designing particular applications one may derive various different application design alternatives from the same reference SaaS architecture specification. To meet the required functional and nonfunctional requirements of different enterprise applications it is important to model the possible design so that a feasible alternative can be defined. In this thesis, we propose a systematic app...
A service oriented collaborative supply chain planning process definition and execution platform
Olduz, Mehmet; Doğaç, Asuman; Department of Computer Engineering (2008)
Currently, there are many software applications handling planning, scheduling, material management, invoicing, workflow management within an organization. However, companies need to plan across a wider span of activities and need to collaborate with their partners to optimize the ''overall'' profitability. This requires collaborative planning within a supply chain and exchange of planning data. Collaborative Planning, Forecast and Replenishment (CPFR) is one of the most prominent initiatives on Collaborativ...
Using semantic web services for data integration in banking domain
Okat, Çağlar; Doğru, Ali Hikmet; Department of Computer Engineering (2010)
A semantic model oriented transformation mechanism is developed for the centralization of intra-enterprise data integration. Such a mechanism is especially crucial in the banking domain which is selected in this study. A new domain ontology is constructed to provide basis for annotations. A bottom-up approach is preferred for semantic annotations to utilize existing web service definitions. Transformations between syntactic web service XML responses and semantic model concepts are defined in transformation ...
Automatic composition of semantic web services with the abductive event calculus
Kırcı, Esra; Çiçekli, Fehime Nihan; Department of Computer Engineering (2008)
In today's world, composite web services are widely used in service oriented computing, web mashups and B2B Applications etc. Most of these services are composed manually. However, the complexity of manually composing web services increase exponentially with the increase in the number of available web services, the need for dynamically created/updated/discovered services and the necessity for higher amount of data bindings and type mappings in longer compositions. Therefore, current highly manual web servic...
Design and implementation of a hybrid and configurable access control model
Turan, Uğur; Özgit, Attila; Department of Computer Engineering (2009)
A hybrid and configurable access control model is designed to satisfy the requirements of using different access control models in the same schema. The idea is arised to completely combine and configure the two main access control models, discretionary and mandatory which have been widely used in many systems so far with their advantages and disadvantages. The motivation originates from the fact that; in real life usage, discretionary based systems needs some strict policies and mandatory based systems need...
