Designing service-oriented interactions across enterprise boundaries requires addressing the concerns of many stakeholders. A framework for interaction design modularizes these concerns into four viewpoints that support representations ranging from business goals to service messaging protocols. The framework helps maintain consistency between representations across the viewpoints and lets stakeholders collaborate on reconciling their business needs. It includes a tool for automatically obtaining messaging protocols that satisfy these needs. The viewpoints and the framework enable a requirements-driven, collaborative, interaction-design process.
