From the reviews:
"The book addresses automatic change management in semantic Web services, describing changes by categorizing them. ... Professionals working in semantic Web services solutions will find the book very useful for including change management in their solutions. The book nicely demonstrates the material for researchers beginning their research in semantic Web services; the presented work can also become a basis for commercial change management product development. Students taking a course on change management automation or the semantic Web will find good additional information to read." (Maulik A. Dave, ACM Computing Reviews, March, 2012)

Change Management for Semantic Web Services provides a thorough analysis of change management in the lifecycle of services for databases and workflows, including changes that occur at the individual service level or at the aggregate composed service level. This book describes taxonomy of changes that are expected in semantic service oriented environments. The process of change management consists of detecting, propagating, and reacting to changes.
Change Management for Semantic Web Services is one of the first books that discuss the development of a theoretical foundation for managing changes in atomic and long-term composed services. This book also proposes a formal model and a change language to provide sufficient semantics for change management; it devises an automatic process to react to, verify, and optimize changes. Case studies and examples are presented in the last section of this book.
