I'm trying to put together some graphics for the SOA Governance article I'm working on. Once concept I like is the idea that governance links the producer and consumer lifecycles. I've tried to capture that idea (roughly) in the graphic at the right. I'd sorely appreciate comments on what's wrong with it and what I'm missing or might communicate more clearly another way.
One thing that confused me for a second was that I wanted to put "discover" as a "design time" activity, but that's really only "design time" from the producers standpoint. Consumers always discover in the producers "run time."
