Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE, volume 60)


This chapter analyzes LD-CAST – a business cooperation framework using business processes and semantic technologies for supporting local development by means of transnational activities. The system, based on Service Oriented Architecture and developed for a European STREP project, had multiple stakeholders, involving the necessity to describe various views, on various levels of abstraction. Both classical view models and new ones, specific for services, are used here for completing the description.


Software architecture service oriented architecture view models e-business 



We would like to thank the LD-CAST Consortium, including both technical partners and chambers of commerce, who inspired our study related to the views of various stakeholders in a system based on SOA.
