    This paper presents a model-based approach to service creation. We observe that the complexity of software services increases. To manage this complexity, and to quickly create specific services in an efficient and cost-effective way upon user request, models are used, going towards ‘higher-level’ programming. A service creation environment is developed that supports the modelling of services at successive abstraction levels, the analysis of service models, their actual implementation, and the testing and deployment of service implementations. Services are assumed to be developed from existing or newly developed software components. Components are modelled by describing their external behaviour, rather than their interface(s) only. This provides additional design information facilitating a systematic approach to service creation. This paper shows how we model services and their constituent components, and how we use these models.
