|Adaptive Web Services for Modular and Reusable Software Development: Tactics and Solutions
Guadalupe Ortiz, Javier Cubo.
Web services provide systems with great flexibility and easier maintenance which result in better ways to communicate and distribute applications. There are good procedures in place for the design, development, and management of Web services; however, there are areas in which Web service adaptation is...

As Web technology evolves and adopts new uses and applications, the creation and proliferation of Web services continues to be an increasingly important issue for study and research. Web Services Research for Emerging Applications: Discoveries and Trends provides a comprehensive assessment of the...
DiALog: A Distributed Model for Capturing Provenance and Auditing Information
Christoph Ringelstein, Steffen Staab.
Service-oriented systems facilitate business workflows to span multiple organizations (e.g., by means of Web services). As a side effect, data may be more easily transferred over organizational boundaries. Thus, privacy issues arise. At the same time, there are personal, business and legal requirements...
Flexible Probabilistic QoS Management of Orchestrations
Sidney Rosario, Albert Benveniste, Claude Jard.
In this paper, the authors develop a comprehensive framework for QoS management based on soft probabilistic contracts. The authors approach also encompasses general QoS parameters, with “response time” as a particular case. In addition, the authors support composite QoS parameters, for example...
A Dependable Infrastructure for Cooperative Web Services Coordination
Eduardo Adilio Pelinson Alchieri, Alysson Neves Bessani, Joni da Silva Fraga.
A current trend in the web services community is to define coordination mechanisms to execute collaborative tasks involving multiple organizations. Following this tendency, in this paper the authors present a dependable (i.e., intrusion-tolerant) infrastructure for cooperative web services coordination...
Selective Service Provenance in the VRESCo Runtime
Anton Michlmayr, Florian Rosenberg, Philipp Leitner, Schahram Dustdar.
In general, provenance describes the origin and well-documented history of a given object. This notion has been applied in information systems, mainly to provide data provenance of scientific workflows. Similar to this, provenance in Service-oriented Computing has also focused on data provenance....
Web Services Compositions Modelling and Choreographies Analysis
Mohsen Rouached, Walid Fdhila, Claude Godart.
In Rouached et al. (2006) and Rouached and Godart (2007) the authors described the semantics of WSBPEL by way of mapping each of the WSBPEL (Arkin et al., 2004) constructs to the EC algebra and building a model of the process behaviour. With these mapping rules, the authors describe a modelling...
Web Services Integration in Multi-Agent Systems
Davide Guidi, Mauro Gaspari, Giuseppe Profiti.
The development of distributed systems is influenced by several paradigms. For example, in the last few years, great emphasis has been placed on Service Orientation. In addition, technologies such as Web services are now considered standard, deployed in common development tools and widely used....
Extending the JADE Framework for Semantic Peer-To-Peer Service Based Applications
Agostino Poggi, Michele Tomaiuolo.
One of the main challenges of multi-agent systems is to become the main means to support legacy systems interoperability and to make the realization of scalable distributed systems easy. In the last years, however, two technologies, peer-to-peer and service-oriented, have made an impressive progress...
Adaptive Ensemble Multi-Agent Based Intrusion Detection Model
The system that monitors the events occurring in a computer system or a network and analyzes the events for sign of intrusions is known as intrusion detection system. The performance of the intrusion detection system can be improved by combing anomaly and misuse analysis. This chapter proposes an...
Towards Automatic Service Composition within ARGUGRID
Nabeel Azam, Vasa Curcin, Li Guo, Moustafa Ghanem.
Workflow systems play an important role in service-oriented computing as they provide an intuitive mechanism for orchestrating the execution of remote services. Constructing new workflows from raw services however, is not always a straight-forward task. It requires resolving many decisions including...
Context Dissemination in Peer-to-Peer Networks
Antje Barth, Michael Kleis, Andreas Klenk, Benoit Radier, Sanaa Elmoumouhi, Georg Carle, Mikael Salaun.
In recent years, peer-to-peer overlay networks have become a popular communication paradigm with the potential to further change communication fundamentally in the future. Overlays allow communication abstraction but suffer from one inherent problem: The overlay is unaware of the context of a service...
Request-Driven Cross-Media Content Adaptation Technique
Mohd Farhan Md Fudzee, Jemal Abawajy.
Devices, standards and software develop rapidly, but still often independently of each other. This creates problems in terms of content suitability on various devices. Also, in mobile environment, user and system-level applications must execute subject to a variety of resource constraints. In order to...
