The lecture focuses on service-oriented computing (SOC) and service-oriented architecture (SOA). Basic concepts of SOC will be explained on the service level (service description, discovery and invocation) and process level (business process formalization, service composition, transaction mechanisms) with respect to SOC utilization for flexible business applications implementation in (semi-)open environment (intra- i inter-enterprise). Besides basic web-services specifications and technologies (SOAP, WSDL, UDDI, BPEL) the up-to-date technologies for semantic web-services will be introduced. Great emphasis will be put on representation and modeling formalisms (RDF, RDFS, OWL). Open environment operation aspects will be also presented (reputation, trust, quality-of-service, privacy). The goal of the course is to bring general overview, but particular SOA platforms and tools (Sun Glassfish, JBoss) will be also introduced including comparison to older distributed systems architectures (CORBA, DCOM) and related domain of multi-agent systems. The design methodology, implementation, and deployment will be explained with relation to existing business processes and organizational structures.
