Algebraic Support for Service-Oriented Architecture

Extended Abstract
Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 2422)


The Net-based economy, now fuelled by the increasing availability of wireless communication, is imposing a new architectural model for software systems which, mirroring what is already happening in the business domain, is based on services instead of products. The trend is to support this model through the use of object-oriented approaches, but two essential questions have barely been addressed so far: How “new” is this Software Technology? What does it require from Algebraic Methodology?
