Abstract

Modern architectural styles, like the service-oriented style underlying web services, are highly dynamic. This complicates not only their practical application, but also the modeling and prediction of their behavior. To account for this problem, we propose to model architectures as graphs, represented as instances of UML class diagrams, and to describe their reconfigurations by graph transformation rules. Based on a sample model for service-oriented architectures, we discuss what properties are interesting to be analyzed and how such analysis could be performed.
