Service Oriented Systems Integration

The new systems are built upon SOA and the legacy systems expose their functions as Web services. Service composition is a way to construct new services, or a way to integrate the service oriented systems. We need automatic methods to solve the following problems:
  • Interface level incompatibility
  • Process level incompatibility
  • Composite service adaptation
