A survey of agent-oriented software engineering for service-oriented computing

A survey of agent-oriented software engineering for service-oriented computing Services play an increasingly important role in software applications today.

Abstract

Services play an increasingly important role in software applications today. Service-Oriented Computing (SOC) increases the speed of system development through loose coupling between the system components, the discovery of services and consolidating multiple heterogeneous services. However, the present conventional approaches to engineering SOC systems are not able to address the complexities of open and dynamic environments, such as those in an extended virtual enterprise or in interorganisation workflows. This is the first survey paper for Agent-Oriented Software Engineering (AOSE) to be applied to SOC. In this paper, we have also identified the critical challenges for Service-Oriented Software Engineering (SOSE) and how agent-based techniques can be applied to address these challenges. The paper surveys and evaluates a number of models and methodologies that attempt to tie in two domains of software engineering, namely, Agent-Oriented Analysis and Design and Service-Oriented Analysis and Design (SOAD).
