Abstract or Description
This report presents the results of the Foundations of Software-Oriented Architecture (FSOA) workshop held at the Third International Conference on Interoperability for Enterprise Software and Applications (I-ESA 2007). This workshop was organized to provide a forum for a concerted effort to develop a long-term, community-wide research agenda to bridge the gap between SOA research and the real needs of the practitioners in the field. An initial research agenda for SOA was presented along with three papers that focus on specific aspects of operations, engineering, and business challenges. The papers are each presented in this report, and the discussion and its implications for an evolving research agenda are summarized.
