SOA Testing Goes Academic

I came across a recent publication titled Testing in a SOA World presented at The Proceedings of the International Conference on Information Technologies (InfoTech-2007), September 21-23, 2007, Bulgaria.

Here's the Abstract:

"Abstract: Service-oriented architecture (SOA) is the latest attempt to better link the
business with technology. Testing a SOA applications become more and more complex,
as it should be continuous, not just in development and integration, but in deployment,
because an SOA by nature is never a static application. Even if each service in a SOA
application is tested thoroughly and carefully the quality of the final application may
suffer because testing is not enough after the integration of the services. This article
presents the challenges and problems that test teams experience when testing SOA
applications. It also summarizes how the testing of SOA is carried out now and gives
some ideas on further improvements."

The article provides a comprehensive overview of challenges facing the SOA Testing world. I am pleased to see the academic community getting involved in this area and hope that will innovate and produce exceptional original work in solving issues in SOA Testing.
