Everware-CBDI is pleased to announce the immediate availability of the CBDI-SAE UML Profile for SOA V3 (SAE Profile). The SAE Profile makes Model Driven Architecture (MDA) for SOA practical for everyone. Whilst introducing a sensible level of compliance with industry standards such as SoaML, the SAE Profile provides a more extensive and detailed coverage of the complete lifecycle, from business models to deployment. As well as capturing requirements in a precise manner, the ability to model service architectures and service specifications facilitates SOA governance with the production of more formal models and other key deliverables that conform to a detailed meta model.
The SAE Profile allows architects and designers to use UML tools such as Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect and No Magic Inc's MagicDraw and to create purpose designed, consistent deliverables for SOA.
The SAE Profile is based on the CBDI-SAE methodology which is defined in the CBDI-SAE meta model for SOA. This is a detailed set of meta class models that define SOA concepts at a level of precision suitable for project deliverables. The models are broadly scoped to integrate with architecture, design and solution delivery practices and span the entire life cycle.
Making the CBDI-SAE Meta Model for SOA available as a UML Profile enables users to model SOA design and architecture using diagrams that are UML compliant and to progressively define detailed meta data that can be used directly in key project and governance deliverables including all architecture views, service specifications, implementation, technology and deployment specifications.
The Version 3.0 upgrade includes:
A new report “An Introduction to Service Architecture Modeling with the CBDI-SAE UML Profile for SOA V3” provides guidance on how to use the SAE Profile and walks through the process of modeling a service specification architecture.
The SAE Profile and the guidance report are provided free for download to registered members.
