A Taxonomy for Identifying and Specifying Non-functional Requirements in Service-oriented Development

abstract Like in traditional software development, non-functional requirements play a significant role in service-oriented development. Non-functional requirements are spread across the entire service-oriented system or within individual services and cannot be allocated to one specific software artefact (e.g., class, package, component). This makes them more difficult to handle than functional requirements. The specifics of service-oriented architectures, such as highly distributed services bring up additional difficulties. In this paper we present a taxonomy for non-functional requirements in a service-oriented context. The taxonomy includes three main categories of non-functional requirements: process requirements, non-functional external requirements, and non-functional service requirements. The taxonomy applies to individual services as well as to a service-
based system as a whole. This taxonomy is considered as a starting point and check list when handling non-functional aspects in service-oriented and particularly highly distributed environments.
