One of the challenges in the design of a service in a Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) environment is understanding the implied concept of Quality of Service (QoS): not just what it is, but also how it is actually measured and how it can be represented in the currently available notations. This Master thesis is done in the context of the SeQual project (of which IBM is one of the partners), and will focus on:
- performance-oriented issues in an SOA environment
- performance requirements, Key Performance Indicators (KPI) and assessment criteria
- study of modelling notations in order to investigate their capability in what concerns the modelling of these constraints.
The result of this thesis will be the definition and validation of a viewpoint for illustrating performability in service-oriented systems. This viewpoint will comply with the ISO/IEC Standard 42010 on architectural descriptions.
