Service Oriented Computing (SOC) is a one-semester course that introduces how to build and leverage software systems as a service to facilitate reusability, scalability, availability, and interoperability, in a networked environment. SOC has been significantly changing the way how software systems and applications are analyzed, architected, designed, implemented, tested, evaluated, delivered, consumed, maintained and evolved. Its comprising techniques have enabled the emergence of the contemporary third-generation software engineering: Service Oriented Software Engineering (SOSE). In this course, key concepts and standards, core enabling technologies and innovative consulting methods, as well as major solution patterns, are captured in the whole lifecycle of SOSE. Research and practical projects build upon one another.
