The increase in mobility and heterogeneity of networked devices raised the need for autonomous service oriented computing environments promising a significant reduction in development and management complexity. Current services underlie a traditional service life cycle, leaving little room for autonomous service behavior, causing that service autonomy is commonly realized through rule-based adaptation mechanisms. Within this paper, a biologically inspired life-cycle is proposed, enabling service evolution in addition to service adaptation. This concept is then extended to the services' design phase, providing the autonomous creation and transformation of services in order to respond to changes in the user's requirements or surrounding and the ability to generate new functionalities potentially not yet requested by to the user.
