Service-oriented architecture (SOA) promotes a paradigm in which enterprise applications are implemented as reusable, interoperable, network-accessible software modules. Ambiguity is introduced when enterprise organizations devise natural language specifications to describe the service capabilities. Consequently, consumers often misinterpret operational details while using these services, resulting in unfavorable side-effects. Practical, verifiable, and reusable solutions are required to mitigate these issues.
