While not entirely a new concept, service-oriented computing has come into its own when applied to the web, particularly when it is related to the disciplines of database management, distributed computing, artificial intelligence and multi-agent systems. Singh (computer science, North Carolina State U.) and Huhns (computer science, U. of South Carolina) explain the principles and practices of service- oriented computing, generally within the context of the web, with topics such as basic standards, programming web services, enterprise architectures, modeling and representation, the resource description framework, ontology, execution models, transaction concepts, coordination frameworks, process specifications, collaboration and communication with agents, semantic and socio-economic service selection, building SOC applications, service management and security. They outline upcoming challenges, including those related to ethics, and include information on XML and SML schema in an appendix. Annotation ©2005 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
