Although web services are not the only way to design the Service paradigm, they are likely to be one of the major technologies used to achieve both the interoperability and loose coupling required for Service Oriented Architecture (SOA). However, there is still much to be done in order to get a genuinely flawless web service. The authors' research paper consists on finding new service based solutions to increase flexibility and adaptability to SOA-based applications. In this paper, they introduce an engine named Aspect Service Weaver (ASW) that enables to weave and un-weave new behavior (such as security) to a SOA-based application at runtime.
