This article describes how to make the transition from the UML model of the software services to the domain-specific, service-oriented architecture (SOA) model by using the UML-to-SOA transformation tool that is included in IBM® Rational® Software Architect or later. This transformation serves as an umbrella for the different transformation extensions for the specific software implementations and run times. The UML-to-SOA transformation typically accepts the UML model as its source and creates domain-specific SOA output. Transformation output depends completely on the selected transformation extension. In general, transformation extensions produce domain-specific software artifacts that can be deployed on the runtime machine or server. The extensions can then be used as input to other tools for further development and deployment.
