Abstract: Service composition enables the creation of services previously unavailable through the aggregation of existing services. The result is called a service composition. Exposing a service composition as a service, the result is called a composed service. It can be distinguished from atomic services. Service composition approaches can be differentiated along two axes: point in time of composition and degree of automation. With design-time and run-time we can identify two different points in time for doing a composition. Additionally we can distinguish between three different degrees of automation: manual, assisted, and automated service composition.Show all publications
