In large-scale software projects that increasingly adopt service-oriented software architecture and technologies, availability of sound systems engineering principles, methodology and tools for service-oriented applications is mission-critical for project success. However, engineering service-oriented applications poses specific requirements that differ from traditional software engineering and the discipline of software service engineering (SSE) is not yet established. Consequently, there is an urgent need for research community and industry practitioners to develop comprehensive engineering principles, methodologies and tool support for the entire software development lifecycle of service-oriented applications.
