Due to the increasing scale and complexity of service-oriented systems (SOSs) understanding fault and its recovery mechanism is a tedious task so there is a strong demand for a summary of the SOSs fault analysis knowledge that can assist further developers and researchers to plan appropriate action and guidelines for SOSs development. The objective of this systematic literature review (SLR) is to summarise the current state-of-the-art of fault analysis in SOSs. The authors have used the predefined SLR method employing a manual search of 11 highly reputed international journals and three conference proceedings. The categorisation and organisation were done according to the research questions regarding approaches, fault types, current issues and challenges and tools of fault analysis on SOSs. After applying selection criteria, this SLR includes 123 papers published between January 2008 and April 2017, 65 papers address SOSs-fault handling approaches, 35 papers report SOS-specific faults and 51 papers address SOS issues, challenges, and testing and 17 papers are of tooling. They have discussed the main approaches, techniques, concepts, contributions and research methods used for fault analysis of SOSs. Through the paper, a comprehensive review work has been presented that provides empirical evidence for establishing future research agendas.
