The simulation of distributed systems that implement a Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) imposes a set of requirements on their simulation models. These models must replicate the interactions that characterise the SOA operational paradigm and the role of the entities that support an SOA. When those interactions occur over Mobile Ad hoc Networks (MANETs), simulation models must accurately reproduce the effects that mobility and other networking factors have on the system. This paper presents the architecture of a simulation environment for MANET-interconnected Service-Oriented Systems.
