An Evaluation on Developer’s Acceptance of EasySOC: A Development Model for Service-Oriented Computing
Different development methods have been proposed for enabling the construction of software with the Service-Oriented Computing (SOC) paradigm . Service-oriented applications invoke services that developers must first discover, engage, and in time potentially replace with newer versions or even alternative services from different
providers. Hence, the widely agreed development methodology involves three main activities, including service discovery, service incorporation into applications, and service replacement. EasySOC is a very recent approach for developing service-oriented applications that decreases the costs of building this kind of applications, by simplifying
discovery, integration and replacement of services. This paper reports some experiments evidencing the effort needed to start producing service –oriented applications with EasySOC. Result s show that users non experienced in SOC development perceive that EasySOC is convenient and easy to adopt.
