Practical use of SoaML


UML (Unified Modeling Language) is a well established standard for modeling requirements, software components, databases etc. SoaML (Service oriented architecture Modeling Language), as an extension to UML, has been here for a while as well, but it hasn’t got the attention of IT architects in the way it maybe should have. Before an enterprise architect, business architect or solution architect starts to use a modeling language, he or she needs to see practical use of it in actual models, that gives some kind of value into the development life cycle. The video below tries to capture the essence of practical use of SoaML, focusing on services, and what a service is, at different stages.
