Abstract:Service composition is a technique applied in software systems and has the goal to compose application services in order to achieve value-added functionality. With the Internet increasingly woven into our daily lives, access to user friendly services becomes increasingly important. Services composition provides a way to fulfill complex goals of end-users by combining the power of several services. Mashups are an example of a successful service composition approach, but in this approach a professional developer is responsible for developing the composition. User-centric service composition aims at providing a user-aware software platform for creating compositions of services in order to fulfill the goals of the user. This enables less skilled users to create compositions that achieve value-added functionality. This thesis describes the engineering of a prototype for user-centric service composition in the e-commerce and entertainment domain based on the DynamiCoS framework. The e-commerce and entertainment domain contain realistic scenarios for service composition and have different types of users, namely users that lack technical knowledge. An architecture for the prototype and interaction patterns with the DynamiCoS framework are introduced. Furthermore the prototype is evaluated with end-users.
