Services computing is a cutting-edge area, popular in both industry and academia. New challenges have been introduced to develop service-oriented systems with high assurance requirements. High Assurance Services Computing captures and makes accessible the most recent practical developments in service oriented high assurance systems.

An edited volume contributed by well-established researchers in this field worldwide, this book reports the best current practices and emerging methods in the areas of service-oriented techniques for high assurance systems. Available results from industry and government, R&D laboratories and academia are included, along with unreported results from the "hands-on" experiences of software professionals in their respective domains.

Designed for practitioners and researchers working for industrial organizations and government agencies, High Assurance Services Computing is also suitable for advanced-level students in computer science and engineering.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From the reviews:

“This fascinating book—on an important set of topics—brings together current research in high-assurance computing. Services computing is an emerging discipline that bridges the gap between business services and information technology services. The core technologies for services computing are service oriented architecture (SOA) and Web services. … This collection of research articles is best suited for a graduate-level academic audience and for practitioners who are particularly immersed in service-oriented computing.” (Charles K. Davis, ACM Computing Reviews, January, 2010)
