Description & Coverage
Description:

In recent years, the development of distributed systems, in particular the Internet, has been influenced heavily by three paradigms: peer-to-peer, autonomous agents, and service orientation.

Developing Advanced Web Services through P2P Computing and Autonomous Agents: Trends and Innovations establishes an understanding of autonomous peer-to-peer Web Service models and developments as well as extends growing literature on emerging technologies. This scholarly publication is an important reference for researchers and academics working in the fields of peer-to-peer computing, Web and grid services, and agent technologies.

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Automatic service composition
  • Autonomous Agents
  • Context Dissemination
  • Context-aware computing
  • Distributed libraries management
  • Mobile Web Services
  • Multi-Agent Systems
  • Peer-to-Peer Networks
  • Semantic Peer-To-Peer Service Based Applications
Reviews and Testimonials

This book is expected to act as a guide for technology solution developers from academia, research institutions and industry, providing them with a broader perspective of P2P and Autonomous Agent and Web Services.
