The challenge in the development of complex systems is to cope with the dynamic nature of the user's profile, especially when such systems are exposed to the large public through the Internet. In service oriented computing (SOC), a service may interact with several types of service clients. The central problem is, therefore, how to model the multidimensional aspect of service clients' needs and requirements. To tackle this problem, we propose in this paper the concept of the multiview service as a first class modeling entity that permits the representation of the needs and requirements of end-users by separating their concerns. Such adaptable services must carefully be analyzed and designed. However, current works on service oriented analysis and design (SOAD) largely focus on defining processes to develop business processes and services without considering user-aware variability. In the present paper we present an MDA framework for a muliview SOAD process for the development of highly adaptable services. We specify transformations as a collection of rules implemented in ATL. The proposal is illustrated by a simple example.
