Web services are software that provide access to their capabilities across the World Wide Web via XML interfaces. The use of XML enables systems running in different environments and at different locations to exchange information, interoperate, and be combined more readily than ever before. The first generation of web-service infrastructure and applications are already in development, allowing web services to issue requests to others and to register/describe/find a service to use (e.g., SOAP, WSDL, UDDI).
This workshop will explore issues in, and new technologies and methodologies to support the engineering, deployment, integration, and evolution of web services in such a way as to get the best software engineering properties of objects into XML-based web services.
