Background

From The MODAF Service Oriented Viewpoint p17:

SOV-5 is the key behavioural specification for services. Equivalent in nature to OV-5 and SV-4, it specifies a set of functions that a service implementation is expected to perform.

Description

From The MODAF Service Oriented Viewpoint p17:

An SOV-5 specifies the required functionality that an implementation of a service is expected to have; the implementation is represented in SV-1 and SV-4.

From The MODAF Service Oriented Viewpoint p18:

Note that an SOV-5 should be a statement of what a service implementation is to do rather than how it is to do it. The functions specified in an SOV-5 should be essential to the service rather than an attempt to steer a particular implementation approach.
