Example text

Web services generally use either SOAP or XML-RPC as a communications method for services, although others are possible, including email. In addition the web services, protocol stack includes UDDI [29] for service discovery and WSDL [30] for service description. All of these are based on HTTP as a transport protocol. More recently, the underlying SOA communications infrastructure has been collected into an Enterprise Service Bus, ESB. The ESB provides the basic services as described by the previous protocol suite.

Architectural styles describe the pattern of interactions between components in systems. For example, pipeline where a series of components pass the data stream though successive stages to solve the problem. When describing styles, the operational properties of the agents become part of the style, but the internal operation or implementation of the agent is not specified. This is a departure from most of the agent literature, where how to construct the internal logic of the agent is the common topic.

Thus, a capability is defined more like the common definition of service. A well-designed service has a set of related capabilities that are inherent in the service. For a service to encapsulate a “grab bag” of diverse capabilities is directly analogous to similar forms of bad object design. This definition of service could fit well in object oriented-programming, in which a service is a kind of object. The capabilities are the analog of the methods of the object. What gives definition and form to services is a set of qualities.
