The method of Modeling in Color (MIC) has its foundation in object-oriented analysis and design; however, given today Ãs modern service oriented architectures (SOA), the approach is more relevant than ever. In any SOA, MIC can provide answers to difficult questions like: How are services properly designed? What Ãs the appropriate level of granularity for those services? Basic MIC techniques will be discussed and how to break a Color Model into discrete, loosely coupled components will be examined. How to convert the componentized model into XML schema and into XML web services will be explored.
