Today's industries exhibit a growing trend towards benefiting from Web services. However, management complexity also grows with the number and type of services deployed. How to help users discover an appropriate service from tremendous ones, how to provide security access to target service, how to supply reliable service, and how to integrate commerce into services executing process become significant challenges. Therefore, companies soon require facilities that support and automate their management efforts.
