It enables companies to concentrate on their core area without having to forego professional IT infrastructure. On the other hand, however, there is a risk of vendor lock-in, i.e. dependency on a specific cloud provider. TOSCA is addressing this problem. TOSCA is a standard for describing interoperable cloud applications. Among other things, TOSCA enables the description of the structure, deployments and management. The University of Stuttgart is developing a runtime environment called OpenTOSCA for this standard. A first prototypical but functional implementation has already been completed. In this, however, calls to services are executed outside the visibility area of ​​the OpenTOSCA container. In this bachelor thesis, a concept for the generic call of services by a central component of the OpenTOSCA container is presented. The requirements made and the design decisions made are addressed as well as the architecture and possibilities of the solution concept that has been developed. Furthermore, a prototypical implementation of the concept is part of this work. Therefore, important and interesting points of the implementation are presented and explained.Appears in Collections:05 Faculty of Computer Science, Electrical Engineering and Information Technology
