SOA Consortium Releases New Podcast Featuring Cory Casanave, Model Driven Solutions on “Overview of Enterprise SOA Modeling with the New OMG SoaML UML Profile”

The SOA Consortium ™ today announced that a podcast and slide deck of the presentation by Cory Casanave, CEO, Model Driven Solutions on “Overview of Enterprise SOA Modeling with the New OMG SoaML™ UML ® Profile,” recorded at the March 2009 meeting of the SOA Consortium in Washington, D.C. are now available. To access the podcast, visit .

The SoaML (Service oriented architecture Modeling Language) specification describes a UML profile and metamodel for the design of services within a service-oriented architecture. SoaML can be used for architecture level modeling, or as part of a Model Driven Architecture ® (MDA ® ) process, starting with a business model and transitioning through logical and physical models, resulting in technology implementation.

Casanave began by setting context, describing the rationale and objectives of SoaML, how SoaML views a service (agreement between parties to exchange something), the top-down (business-driven) and bottoms-up (legacy-aware) usage paths, and the mapping of those paths to MDA.

To bring the specification to life, Casanave walked through the artifacts related to a claims processing scenario, including the services architecture model, business process model, service contract, participant interaction model, message types, service interface, service usage, participant model, composite application structure and information model.
