Many people are using CBDI SAE™ Meta Model and associated UML Profile in whole or part. CBDI has pioneered this area, and we are pleased to see the standardization of SOA modeling concepts in SoaML from the Object Management Group (OMG).

Following publication we will set up a discussion forum to invite feedback and discussion among CBDI users.
