As Web services technology is becoming widely established in enterprise computing applications, Web services research is a very important and still very productive research domain. This book gives a timely report on the leading edge of this area by covering a wide spectrum of active research topics like Model Driven Engineering for SOA, Mobility and Services, Dynamic Web Service Discovery and Composition, Service Management, and Semantic Web. In particular, the book collects selected and revised papers originally presented at the first Workshop on Emerging Web Services Technology (WEWST) held in conjunction with the 4th European Conference on Web Services (ECOWS‘06) last December 2006 in Zurich, Switzerland.
