The development and evolution of Web applications by reusing existing software artifacts is an important goal to reduce costs and to increase quality. Reuse-oriented development is still a difficult task because of the legacy of the Web. Modern component-based technologies and support for service-oriented architectures address the related problems with an increasing set of dedicated solutions. The complexity of such solutions for reusing software artifacts is no longer manageable in an ad hoc manner and without support. In this paper we introduce the WebComposition Service Linking System (WSLS) that addresses this problem providing a reuse-oriented approach to the Web application life-cycle. WSLS is a component-based system, which applies the service-oriented paradigm. It supports issues of composing, discovering and reusing core services. Core services are maintainable, manageable and configurable building blocks as such they are a unit for reuse and for composition of Web applications. Evolution of the composed core services is supported and guided in a systematic way by the underlying WSLS framework. The system is in use for a project funded by the German government called Notebook University.
