Abstract


Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) is an emerging area of software engineering, based on the concept of re-usable services to support the development of rapid, economical and stable distributed application even in heterogeneous environments. Function point is considered an accurate and well established approach among its competitors to estimate the efforts, size and functionality of software development projects. Estimating the cost, size and efforts for SOA application is a difficult task due to its diverse nature and loose coupling behavior, which results in an inaccurate estimate to measure the efforts, size and functionality of SOA applications. This research paper highlights the integration efforts estimation using a work flow model, to accurately estimate the efforts and cost needed for SOA application.

Keywords: Service Oriented Architecture (SOA), Integration Efforts, Efforts Estimation, Function Point Analysis,
