Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) is an architectural style that is widely used in distributed and dynamic systems. The Service oriented architecture Modeling Language (SoaML) is an OMG standard for modelling SOA independent of a technology. This paper presents a tool for modelling SOA using SoaML and generating OSGi Declarative Services Models from SoaML models. SoaML metamodel has been implemented as an Ecore model using the Eclipse Modeling Framework (EMF). An Eclipse plug-in that allows architects to graphically design SoaML models has been developed using the Graphical Modeling Framework (GMF). We have also implemented a model transformation using ATLAS Transformation Language (ATL) in order to partially generate Declarative Services models. The generated model is used as a Declarative Services Component Description XML specification which is needed to execute code on the OSGi service oriented platform. In this way, we provide SoaML with Model Driven Architecture support. © 2010 ACM.
