Abstract: One of the main success factors for the business is the capacity of its IT infrastructure to face change. Many companies are implementing this capacity by the Service-oriented Architecture (SOA), which promises flexibility reusing and composing loosely coupled services. Because technological platforms were not defined originally to SOA the majority of existing tools offer cumbersome solutions, which demand that the programmer knows a lot of technical details for its implementation. This work proposes a conceptual modelling solution based on the Model-Driven Architecture (MDA) for both problems, with models and transformations that allow the automatic code generation of these systems.

Keywords: web services; SOA; service-oriented architecture; conceptual modelling; model-driven architecture; MDA; automatic code generation; UML; software development.
