Special Issue on: "Service-oriented Software Architecture and Assessment in the Future IOT Environment"

Guest Editors:

SOA (Service-oriented architecture) is a flexible set of design principles used during the phases of systems development and integration in computing, and a system based on SOA architecture will provide a loosely integrated suite of services that can be used within multiple separate systems from several business domains. Recently, as SOA is having a substantial impact on the development of software architecture, many architectures/systems are being developed and designed by utilizing the SOA-based style.

Although some progress has been made in several aspects regarding various issues including assessment concerns, there still exists the need for much research addressing SOA-based software architecture in terms of design, development and operation.

This special issue aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners with the common objective of developing SOA-based software architecture and methods into a mature discipline with both solid scientific foundations and mature software engineering development methodologies. In particular, we encourage work and discussions addressing what SOA-based software architecture still needs in order to achieve its original goal. Papers on practical as well as theoretical topics and problems are welcome.

Subject Coverage
Suitable topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Software architecture for legacy systems and systems integration
  • Software architecture from ultra-large to very small systems
  • Service-oriented architecture, SOA migration and governance
  • Software testing models and approaches
  • SOA-based software testing and maintenance
  • SOA-based software quality assurance
  • Software security on the Internet of Things
  • Software education and its applications
