UML Profile for Software Services, RSA Plug-In

The attached archive provides an implementation of the UML profile for software services, a profile for UML 2.0 which allows for the modeling of services, service-oriented architecture (SOA), and service-oriented solutions. The profile has been implemented for IBM Rational Software Modeler (RSM) and IBM Rational Sofware Architect (RSA), used successfully in developing models of complex customer scenarios, and used to help educate people about the concerns relevant to developing service-oriented solutions.

He has undertaken a number of standards-related activities for both Rational Software and now IBM in the area of XML (W3C Schema working group), Web Services (RosettaNet architecture team) and Modeling (OMG UML and OCL teams). Simon has also written articles on the subjects of business modeling, software modeling and SOA and is interested to see where and when these threads will combine.

Overview

Purpose: The attached archive provides a complete implementation of the UML profile for either RSM or RSA--see the Resources section for information about this profile. The plug-in as implemented provides the following capabilities:

  • SoftwareServices.epx - an implementation of the UML Profile for Software Services, this will be installed into RSA so that it may be applied to your models.
  • Service Design Model.emx - a template model that may be used to create new models with the software services profile applied. This template also contains a basic model structure and a library of reusable model elements. The template will appear in the list of model types when you select File > New > UML Model in either RSM or RSA.
  • Retail Example Service Model.emx - an example that was used during the development of the RUP for SOA update (see Resources) to demonstrate the use of the profile. This is available within the samples gallery in either RSM or RSA.

Note: This Plug-In requires RSA version 6.0.0.1 and will not work with previous versions.

RSA Version: Version 6.0.0.1

Supported: Yes, by IBM
