Inventory Governance Patterns

Inventory Governance Patterns represent the following set of patterns from the SOA Design Patterns catalog:

Canonical Expression (Erl)

How can service contracts be consistently understood and interpreted?

Metadata Centralization (Erl)

How can service metadata be centrally published and governed?

Canonical Versioning (Erl)

How can service contracts within the same service inventory be versioned with minimal impact?

These patterns were first printed in the SOA Design Patterns book and summarized versions of the patterns are published at the SOA Patterns community patterns site.
