Abstract:As a promising, low-cost, and agile way to develop software, in recent years automatic service composition has been a popular research topic receiving a lot of attentions. For this topic, upon our long-term study and paper reviewed, we present technical survey and observation in this paper, including indispensable background and preliminary knowledge. The survey assumes under traditional composition context. Moreover, following the survey and observation, we suggest two approach patterns and point out possible future challenge as well as direction, especially to the influence of the mature of mobile devices and environment.
