The creation of services is a complex activity that involves several tasks. Furthermore this complexity is augmented by the fact that supporting service creation environments are technology-specific. Consequently a technology-independent approach and framework are required to generate service creation environments and drive service creation. In this paper we present such an approach and a generic framework for supporting service creation. The approach realizes service creation via the phases

Each phase maps to a corresponding phase in service creation starting from service analysis to service implementation. The applicability of the approach and its accompanying framework is demonstrated via an example scenario that illustrates the automatic generation of a service creation environment for an online survey system. Index Terms-Service creation environment, domain specific modelling, model driven development.
