On the analysis and refactoring of service interfaces for improving service integration efficiency

Wei, Fuguo (2016) On the analysis and refactoring of service interfaces for improving service integration efficiency. PhD thesis, Queensland University of Technology.


This thesis addresses the major challenges of system integration by proposing and implementing algorithms to analyse and simplify large and complex service interfaces. The proposed techniques elicit knowledge of the key artefacts - business entities, their attributes and relationships - and derive heuristics and rules, which in turn guide the derivation of permissible orders in which operations are invoked. The identification of the key aspects of service structure and behaviour assists service users with the comprehension of complex service interfaces and facilitates efficient and effective service integration, and therefore provides a major contribution to the field of service science.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
