English abstract:
Automation systems (ASs) based on Service-Oriented
Architecture (SOA) are becoming more wide-spread. Due
to their inherent property of separating the hardwarespecific
implementation from the logical work- or controlflow,
SOA-based application programming is regarded as
the next logical step in AS programming. Several successful
attempts for implementing SOA-based AS have been
made, but always with non-industrial, non-standard software
like Devices Profile for Web Services. Based on the
requirements of typical industrial SOA-based AS application,
we will show that the industry standard data acquisition
software OPC Unified Architecture is capable to
serve as a SOA-based middleware.
