Aligning Modern Business Processes and Legacy Systems: A by Willem-Jan van den Heuvel

By Willem-Jan van den Heuvel

Allotted company part computing—the assembling of industrial elements into digital enterprise strategies, which have interaction through the Internet—caters to a brand new breed of company platforms which are versatile, rather effortless to take care of and improve to deal with new enterprise strategies, and comparatively easy to combine with different company structures. businesses with unwieldy, huge, and heterogeneous inherited details systems—known as legacy systems—find it super tough to align their previous platforms with novel company approaches. Legacy structures are usually not basically tightly intertwined with present company methods and approaches but in addition have a brittle structure after years of ad-hoc fixes and provide restricted openness to different structures. during this publication, Willem-Jan van den Heuvel offers a methodological framework that gives pragmatic ideas for aligning component-based enterprise procedures and legacy platforms.

Example text

The quality attributes pertaining to a set of services are collectively determined by single services, resulting in emergent behavior. Such quality attributes are difficult to quantify and thus are not incorporated in the component interface. Quality attributes modeled in interfaces thus have the following characteristics. They are externally visible, concerned with services, and quantifiable. In some cases, quantifiability is lifted to allow fuzzy attributes, for instance, cardinal values characterized as high, medium, low.

Alternatively, protocol dependencies stipulate the sequence in which services of a required interface may be called. In case of provided interfaces, the sequence of service calls complying with all protocol dependencies is called a valid sequence. For required interfaces, this is called a possible sequence. The set of all valid sequences is called a provided protocol; the set of all possible sequences is called a required protocol. Practically speaking, the specification of these protocols has to deal with situations in which these protocols are infinite sets.

Port types, messages, and parts make up the abstract part of a WSDL document. , URI). Last, the concrete part defines services that may combine one or more port(s). Ports may be combined for basically two reasons: first, to offer two or more alternate ports for the same port type, and second, to synthesize various (related) port types in one service. If designed in the right way, only semantically related operations should be grouped into port types. For example, variants of a particular business operation, say, variants of the operation reserveTicket allowing reservations via fax, telephone, or e-mail, may be offered in a single port type.
