Service-oriented computing (SOC) is the computational paradigm that utilizes services as fundamental elements to develop applications/solutions. To build a service model, SOC relies on the service-oriented architecture (SOA), which is a way of reorganizing software applications and infrastructures in a set of interacting services. This paper proposes a layered architectural model of the abstraction levels needed in the construction of mobile services platforms. Each one of theses layers has been defined based on SOC requirements and delivers the functionality needed to the creation of autonomous reconfiguring distributed systems.
