Objectives of the Special Issue

Service Oriented Computing (SOC) plays a key role in today’s middleware technology. Although the immediate need of middleware support for SOC is evident, current approaches and solutions still fall short of providing sufficient support for various issues, among others service discovery, re-use, re-purpose, multi-channel delivery, composition and aggregation, quality of service guarantees, dependability and security, management and monitoring.

Moreover, dramatic increases in the availability of mobile devices and embedded/networked sensors, and the rapid emergence of cloud computing and server virtualization (such as Platform as a Service, Infrastructure as a Service and Software as a Service) raise new challenges for the field.

Consequently, the goal of this special issue is to report on significant new developments within the field of middleware for Service Oriented Computing. We seek original research papers that report mature results and advances in this area. We also invite analytical review or survey articles that present in-depth views on the state-of-the-art middleware for SOC concepts, systems, trends and challenges.


Topics to be discussed in this special issue include (but are not limited to) the following:
* Architectures and platforms for middleware for SOC
* Aspect-orientation in Web services middleware
* Autonomic computing solutions for Web services
* Best practices and patterns for Web services middleware
* Middleware for Cloud Computing, Grid/Utility Computing
* Middleware for discovery and/or selection of Web services
* Middleware for Web Service choreography/orchestration
* Middleware for Semantic Web-services
* Middleware for Web services in mobile, embedded, and ubiquitous/pervasive environments
* Monitoring and management middleware for Web services
* Negotiation middleware for Web services
* Policy-based middleware for Web services
* Quality of service middleware for Web services
* SLA and technical policy support through middleware.
* Reputation and/or trust middleware for Web services
* Reliability, dependability, and fault-tolerance middleware for Web services
* Security and/or privacy middleware for Web services
* Service-oriented middleware
