The structure of Internet applications and scenarios is evolving rapidly. New software architectures and formats for transfer of data and site-spanning interoperability are emerging and reshaping the realm of web-centered computing. These changes are having repercussions that will change the established methodologies of design processes and business-to-business applications. Therefore, these effects on the domain of the electronic design automation (EDA) have to be considered and their validity shown.. In this paper we present an approach to exploit webservices technology in the field of embedded system design.
