    Summary form only given. The Internet today was designed four decades ago. The scale of the Internet has grown to enormously large. With the rapid technology advancement, we now have cheap and small devices with high computing power and large storage capacity. These devices are designed to improve our daily life by monitoring our environment, collecting critical data, and executing special instruc... View full abstract»

    With the current push towards service-oriented architectures (SOA) and process orientation, data seems to be getting lost in the SOA shuffle. At the end of the day, however, most applications are still about data, and service-oriented applications are no different. In this talk, we will argue that data services are a critical piece of the SOA application puzzle. We will discuss an approach to SOA ... View full abstract»

    The increasing diffusion of service oriented computing in critical business transactions demands reliability and correctness of the workflow logic representing web service orchestrations. We present an approach for the formal verification of workflow-based compositions of web services, described in BPEL4WS. Workflow processes can be verified in isolation, assuming that the external services invoke... View full abstract»

  • Structure Matching for Enhancing UDDI Queries Results

    To enhance UDDI query capability, typically based on taxonomic classification, semantic matching is assuming a key role. Even if we recognize the great importance of semantics in the discovery process, structure-based matching can be very useful in many situations where semantic annotations are not provided at publish time or ontologies are not yet well defined. Moreover, structure matching has a ... View full abstract»

    A goal of the service oriented paradigm/SOA is to facilitate automated service composition. Motivated by scenarios in e-business and e-science, the automated composition problem starts with a specification of a "goal" service and a set of searchable existing services. The composition problem relies on discovering relevant services at the semantic level, mainly, through entry/exit conditions, and a... View full abstract»

    Service collaboration is important in service- oriented architecture (SOA). While service collaboration protocols for data exchange are well explored, the dynamic process collaboration (DPC) is still a challenge. DPC requires not only exchanging meaningful information between collaboration parties, but also performing collaboration workflow matching based on collaboration ontology. To do this, DPC...

    There is much debate today on what should be the architecture of the next generation of networks. In this paper, we address this question from the perspective of applications. We examine current and emerging applications to identify the factors that lead to a successful deployment. In addition to new computing models, we also examine trends in the mainstream information technology and telecom serv... View full abstract»

    Service-oriented architecture (SOA) provides a powerful and flexible paradigm to compose dynamic service processes using individual atomic services. However, these service processes can become vastly complex, involving many service partners, thereby giving rise to difficulties in terms of runtime problem detection and determination. In this research, we propose hierarchical service accountability ... View full abstract»

    Web 2.0 is becoming popular among people who are interested in creating or providing more useful services on the Internet. Mashup is one of the most important methods in Web 2.0, which creates services by combining components on the Internet, such as Web services. Mashup enables many people to create various services easily and use services created by many other people. To create such a variety of... View full abstract»

    Graphical user interface (GUI) applications (GAPs) are ubiquitous and provide various services. However, it is difficult to make GAPs exchange information (i.e., interoperate) especially if they are closed and monolithic. Unlike GAPs, Web services are applications that are designed to interoperate over the Internet. Thus a fundamental problem of interoperability is how to reengineer GAPs into Web ...

    Web services have played an important role in the development of distributed systems. In particular, the possibility of composing already implemented Web services in order to provide a new functionality is an interesting approach for building distributed applications and business processes. The possibility of dynamically composing web services is also apparent. Current approaches address to this p... View full abstract»

    Context aware application design models are often based on embedding contextual dependencies - in the form of if-then rules - to specify how applications should react to context changes. In this paper we argue that such approaches are impractical and increase the complexity of context aware applications, due to the large variety of possibly even unanticipated context types and their values. We pre... View full abstract»

    The adoption of SOA in business computing environments is growing due to the promise of significant cost reduction in the planning, deployment and operation of IT projects. However, the organic transformation from legacy enterprise applications to SOA applications has occurred mostly in large enterprises. Small businesses have largely been left out of the SOA transformation. For small businesses a... View full abstract»

    To monitor and warrant the performance of concerned business operations, formal representation for business performance models are needed so business analysts can describe what they expect from business service providers. This paper proposes a metamodel and an authoring tool for describing business performance for business services in the context of SOA. A business performance model explicitly cap...

    Because of the dynamic way in which service-oriented architectures are configured, the correct interaction of service users and service providers can only be fully tested at run-time. However, the run-time testing of web services is complicated by the fact that they may be arbitrarily shared and may have lifetimes which are independent of the applications that use them. In this paper we investigat... View full abstract»

    Specification, modeling and analysis of interactions among peers that communicate via messages are becoming increasingly important due to the emergence of service oriented computing. Collaboration diagrams provide a convenient visual model for specifying such interactions. An interaction among a set of peers can be characterized as a conversation, the global sequence of messages exchanged among th... View full abstract»

    Business artifacts are the core entities used by businesses to record information pertinent to their operations. Business operational models are representations of the processing of business artifacts. Traditional process modeling approaches focus on the actions taken to achieve a certain goal (verb-centric). Business artifact-centric modeling starts by identifying what is acted upon (noun-centric... View full abstract»
