As more software companies and organizations enter the web application market, the number of web-based capabilities and services available to software developers are increasing rapidly on the Internet. This phenomena influences the way software is developed. Instead of building software from scratch, developers are encouraged to "assemble" new applications from openly available services provided by third parties. The Service Oriented Software Engineering Group (SOSEG) at University of Notre Dame investigates new approaches that adapt to this environment. Service-oriented computing (SOC) is a paradigm for contemporary software engineering techniques and tools to navigate this emerging environment. Our investigations consist of software life cycles, service-based software discovery, configuration, composition, and quality of service in service-based software systems.
