Abstract

This chapter introduces SOSE (Service-Oriented Software Engineering) as an advanced software development. It argues that SOSE is characterized by small projects, existing software reuse, market changing and software evolution focusing, customer domination, and common middards in comparison with AOSE (Application-Oriented Software Engineering). It presents SOSE software development methodology involving the main processes of service extracting, service middard, service circulation, service evaluation, and service evolution with the middard service fundamental. Eventually, compared with other industries (for example, car manufacturing, construction, and electronics) with global standards and fine-granularity components, the software industry is immature in unified service standards, service marketplace, and service granularity evaluation. The authors hope that understanding the underlying fundamental SOSE middard service and SOSE methodology will make the software industry more productive and profitable.
