In the field of Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) evolution is a key issue given the non-trivial nature of updating widely distributed and heterogeneous systems. With this in mind, in this work we used some of the technologies developed in the context of the Eclipse Modeling Framework (EMF) to provide a proof of concept of the possible synergy between Model-Driven Engineering (MDE) and Service Orientation. In particular, we present a DSL toolkit for modeling the structural part of Abstract Service Descriptions (ASDs) and the reasoning mechanism that assesses whether two versions of a service are compatible with respect to its consumers.
