Service-Oriented Computing allows building applications by reusing web-accessible services. However, current approaches still involve a large effort both at discovery of services and their successful integration. This paper presents a novel approach to help developers to easily deal with discovery, selection and integration of services; and it is based on two recent approaches addressing software maintainability. The first one, called EasySOC, provides specific semi-automated methods for both discovery and integration of services. The second one, initially developed for substitutability of component-based systems, supplies a method for selection of an appropriate third-party candidate component or service, by applying black-box testing techniques. In this paper we present the usefulness of the selection method within the whole approach.
