How to Draw SoaML Service Interface Diagram?
SoaML supports both a contract and an interface-based approach to SOA. They differ in the way services are specified.
The interface-based approach involves the use of simple interfaces and service interface. Simple interface focuses mainly on one-way service delivery that requires no protocol between parties. Service interface allows for bi-directional services. Provider and consumer work together to complete a service.
Service interface diagram is a type of SoaML diagram specialized for the definition and specification of both simple interface and service interface.
