Web service-based systems are built orchestrating loosely coupled, standardized,
and internetworked programs. If on the one hand, Web services address the inter-
operability issues of modern information systems, on the other hand, they enable
the development of software systems on the basis of reuse, greatly limiting the ne-
cessity for reimplementation. Techniques and methodologies to gain the maximum
from this emerging computing paradigm are in great need. In particular, a way to
explicitly model and manage variability would greatly facilitate the creation and
customization of Web service-based systems. By variability we mean the ability of
