The definition of advanced and distributed management frameworks is one of the key research issues that still need to be addressed in the network and service management research field. As part of this effort, the use of Web service technologies provides some advanced features such as improved interoperability and flexibility. This paper describes the main requirements and key components of a Web service-based management framework, how it works (at the level of the designed workflow) and how it has been mapped to a real management framework.
