Recent advances in Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) provides many exciting opportunities for developing next-generation of distributed simulation frameworks and tools. At the mean time, Peer-to-Peer (P2P) based network technique also challenges the traditional view of distributed simulations. Indeed, the integration of SOA and P2P techniques can potentially help on developing more flexible, scalable distributed simulation framework. In this paper, we present our design and implementation of a real-time distributed simulation framework based on SOA concept and JXTA P2P technique. Our simulation framework can be effectively used for evaluating most of SOA related algorithms and schema including but not limited to: dynamic service composition, service path selection, load-balancing algorithms, and etc. Meanwhile our framework can also be applied to emergency preparedness class of applications to identify the critical parameters for designing more efficient emergency response systems.
