In the era of service oriented architectures a relevant research problem consists of turning Web applications into Web services using systematic migration approaches. This paper presents the research results that were obtained by adopting a black-box migration approach based on wrapping to migrate functionalities of existing Web applications to Web services. This approach is based on a migration process that relies on black-box reverse engineering techniques for modelling the Web application user interface. The reverse engineering techniques are supported by a toolkit that allows a semi-automatic and effective generation of the wrapper. The software migration platform and the migration case studies that were performed to validate the proposed approach will also be presented in the paper.
