Engineering Service-Oriented Applications 6th International Workshop WESOA 2010
Many of today’s large-scale software projects in the area of distributed systems and especially enterprise IT adopt service-oriented software architecture and technologies. For these projects, availability of sound software engineering principles, methodology and tool support is of utmost importance. However, traditional software engineering approaches are not fully appropriate for the development of service-oriented applications. The limitations of traditional methods in the context of service-oriented computing have led to the emergence of Software Service Engineering (SSE) as a specialist discipline, but research in this area is still immature and many open issues remain. The WESOA workshop series brings together research community and industry practitioners in order to develop comprehensive engineering principles, methodologies and tool support for the entire software development lifecycle (SDLC) of service-oriented applications.
