This chapter provides an overview of the area of service composition. It does so byintroducing a generic architecture for service composition and using this architecture todiscuss some salient concepts and techniques. The architecture is also used as aframework for providing a critical view into a number of languages, standardizationefforts, and tools related to service composition emanating both from academia andindustry, and to classify them in terms of the concepts and techniques that theyincorporate or support (e.g. orchestration and dynamic service selection). Finally, thechapter discusses some trends in service-oriented software systems engineeringpertaining to service composition.

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.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
