Description of Special Issue

Guiding model for sophisticated (software) reuse strategies that
using (software) components or (software) services are mature
engineering disciplines, which have already concluded the change from a
crafts-like fabrication to an industrial mass production.

These are characterized by the reuse of existing solutions, reduction of
production depth and platform concepts that allow for assembling new
products or services, to a large percentage, simply from existing
(standardized) components, which may have been furnished by others.
competitive advantages mainly result from important gains in terms of
quality and efficiency.

By using software components, which after all offer software services,
users delegate the responsibility for developing the used component,
according to the black box principle, to the component developer.
the component user has to provide a suitable runtime environment and has
to ensure the component's proper operation.

With respect to pragmatics Service-oriented Architecture (SOA) goes one
step further, as the service user may also delegate the responsibility
the service operation towards a third party. This allows for further
sophisticated outsourcing concepts as far as e.g. Business Process
Outsourcing (BPO) or dynamic service re-binding.

This special issue focuses on the field of component and service
engineering, its state of the art as well as remaining challenges and
directions for further research. It is expected that submissions are
on sound theoretical, conceptual-analytical and, where appropriate,
empirical research methods.

Topics include, but are not limited to

* Component- or service-based system architectures and frameworks
* Domain analysis, modularization, and identification of components
or services
* Standardization and specification of components and services
* Configuration management and quality prediction
* Composition, compatibility-tests and type systems, conflict resolution
* Component and service markets
* Specific aspects of IT governance, Information Management, and
Service Science
* Case studies
