This paper describes how the Department of Defense Architecture Framework (DoDAF) can be used for describing a Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA). DoDAF uses IEEE 1472 definition of an architecture description to define a standard approach for describing, presenting, and integrating DoD architectures. The principal objective of the Framework is to ensure that architecture descriptions can be compared and related across organizational boundaries, including Joint and multi-national boundaries. Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) is an architectural approach to application integration that enables flexible connectivity of applications or resources implemented as services. Such services have well-defined, platform-independent interfaces that hide the underlying technical complexity of the environment (encapsulation), are self-contained (loosely coupled), and reusable. Creating DoDAF architecture descriptions that are service orientated supports globalization and the integration of geographically dispersed organizations (Net-centricity).
