In order to realize Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) with Web Services (WSs), a new engineering approach is required; we refer to it as Service-Oriented Software Engineering (SOSE). This approach would sketch out a method, including a process, models, languages, tools, and notations. It encompasses three dimensions: (i) services, (ii) compositions, and (iii) management of both services and compositions. The existing methods have not considered the three perspectives neither they have considered how these perspectives can be achieved together through a comprehensive approach. This paper presents an architecture, a specification, and an implementation of a CASE tool for developing and managing Service-Oriented Software (SOS). The CASE implements: (1) a metadata that represents WSs from four perspectives: description, deployment platforms, legacy systems, and composite software, and (2) a set of management artifacts built on top of the metadata. The metadata is implemented as repository, the core component of the CASE tool architecture.
