Current IT developments like competent-based development and Web services have emerged as new effective ways of building complex enterprise systems and providing enterprise allocation integration. To aid this process, platforms like.Net and Websphere have become standards in web-based systems development. However, there is still much that needs to be researched before service-oriented software engineering (SOSE) becomes a prominent source for enterprise system development. Service-Oriented Software System Engineering: Challenges and Practices provides a comprehensive view of SOSE through a number of different perspectives. Some of those perspectives include; service concepts, modeling and documentation, service discovery and composition, model-driven development of service-oriented applications, and service-orientation in mobile settings. This book provides readers with an in-depth kwledge of the main challenges and practices in the exciting, new world of service-oriented software engineering. Addressing both technical and organizational aspects of this new field, this book offers a balance, making it valuable to a variety of readers including: software developers, managers, and analysts.
