Abstract

Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) is intended to improve software interoperability by exposing dynamic applications as services. To evaluate the design of services in service-based systems, quality measurements are essential to decide tradeoffs between SOA quality attributes. Current SOA quality metrics pay little attention to service granularity as an important key design feature that impacts other internal SOA quality attributes. In this paper we introduce the structural attribute of service granularity for measuring service operations granularity. This metrics will assist in identifying key service operations with impact on other SOA quality. An example case study is included to demonstrate proposed metrics
