Abstract: In recent past, service-oriented architecture (SOA) has evolved as a standard approach of software application development in the business world of information technology. The reason for its popularity lies in its ability to adopt the traditionally developed software applications and provide their functionality as services. Selection of a service from a pool of services, that can fulfil users' capabilities requirements from different service providers, is a challenging core task. Selection of a service is eventually been decided by evaluation of quality of service (QoS) parameters based on user's business requirements, and budget available. This paper presents identification and classification of significant parameters, based on previous literature, that affect service selection in SOA-based applications (SOABAs) along with their definition and relation with service selection effort under the research question, "what are the significant parameters that affect service selection efforts in SOABA?".
Keywords: service-oriented architecture; SOA; service selection; parameters; factors; efforts; effort estimation.
