Abstract: Service-Oriented Architectures (SOA) are a promising means to integrate heterogeneous systems, but virtually no technology-neutral approach to holistically understand SOAs exists. We tackle this problem by introducing a survey of technology-independent patterns that are relevant for SOAs, and are working towards a formalised pattern-based reference architecture model to describe SOA concepts.
Keywords: technology-independent patterns; pattern languages; SOA; service-oriented architectures; reference architecture; software patterns.
