Goran Soldar, Brian Spencer, Dan J. Smith

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


The paper examines the development of e-commerce in the context of the burgeoning of the WorldWide Web. The key web service technologies that have supported this development are reviewed and certain limitations of these technologies are discussed. The paper argues that, if e-commerce services are to continue their rapid expansion, the underlying technologies will need to change to provide greater flexibility, scalability and integration with enterprise systems. The paper describes some recent developments in component technologies that have addressed these issues and proposes some guidelines for their exploitation.
