Description & Coverage
Description:

As Service-Oriented Computing (SOC) gains a wider global acceptance, the need for understanding its life cycle becomes inevitable, not only for developers, but also for users.

Service Life Cycle Tools and Technologies: Methods, Trends and Advances compiles the latest research on SOC life cycles, detailing methodologies and applications in this emerging field. The development of service-oriented applications not only depends on constructing service providers, but also composition and delivery. Service requesters, service providers, and developers, alike, will benefit from the views and models in a service life cycle. This volume offers research that has been conducted in both industry and academia to address issues in the SOC domain, including service discovery, service composition, and service management. It serves as a vital reference for those on either side of the service field.

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Adaptive and Dynamic Service Composition
  • Quality of Service (QoS)
  • Semantic Web Services
  • Service Analysis and Design
  • Service Modeling
  • Service Query
  • Service Wrapping
  • Service-Oriented Programming Language
  • Web Service Monitoring
  • Web Services Level Agreement and Contracts
Reviews and Testimonials

SOC fundamentally changes the way software applications are designed, constructed, delivered, and consumed, and it supports the development of interoperable, configurable and evolvable composite applications. It has emerged as a major trend of the computing paradigm in the past few years.
