Management of mobile/embedded XML Web services has to take into account specifics of their execution environments, including scarce run-time memory, relatively low processing power, limited available electrical power, and slow wireless links. It also has to handle distinctive situations, such as context-sensitive operation and relatively frequent run-time communication disturbances or even disconnections. The existing solutions for management of non-mobile/non-embedded XML Web services do not address these characteristic issues. We have been working on a management system appropriate for mobile/embedded XML Web services. We identified ten new requirements of such a system, additional to the requirements of management systems for non-mobile/non-embedded XML Web services. To address them, we developed new versions of our Web service offerings infrastructure (WSOI) and Web service offerings language (WSOL). Our solutions are being validated on case studies and verified through development of proof-of-concept prototypes.
