Abstract

We report on service development and architecture management practices for an enterprise SOA in the financial domain. First we describe how services are currently developed by one of the largest service providers for the financial domain in Austria. Then we show how we introduced various practices and tools for architecture management over the last years. We have specifically implemented support for architecture extraction, architecture visualization, automatic architecture analysis, and architecture reviews as part of quality gates in the service development process. Finally, we report on lessons learned both in the area of service development and architecture management as well as on existing challenges and future work in this area.
