    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandQuick Abstract | PDF file iconPDF (174 KB)  

    Boeing is an aerospace company, and both airplanes and aviation services are our core businesses. Founded in 1916, Boeing has had a long relationship with China. In fact, the first engineer hired by the company, Wong Tsoo, was a Chinese national. Boeing is projected to sell more airplanes to China than other countries outside of United States in the next 20 years. Boeing's central research organization supports the enterprise by developing technology in support of the company's current and future products, streamlining operations, and improving tools and processes. In the past few years, we have been collaborating with Chinese universities in Beijing, Shanghai, Nanjing, and Hong Kong to develop technologies for net-enabled applications for commercial aviation. We expect this effort will continue in the years to come. Boeing provides a long list of services to airlines in streamlining their operations. Recent models of Boeing aircraft such as the Next-Generation 737 and 787 Dreamliner will be net-enabled in the air and on the ground. We are just beginning to explore the opportunities net-enabling the fleet can bring to the end customers in terms of safety, cost, and passenger experience. Airplanes are mobile nodes in an IP world, offering tremendous opportunities and challenges for researchers. In this speech, we will explore how net-enabling and Web services can help us to exploit the opportunities and overcome the challenges. View full abstract»

  • Common Business Components and Services toward More Agile and Flexible Industry Solutions and Assets

    Page(s): 9 - 10
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandQuick Abstract | PDF file iconPDF (138 KB)  

    In many decades, many organizations, especially large consulting companies, have been designing, implementing and managing business solutions for every industry around the globe. But due to numerous limitations in process, tooling and skills, most of those solutions were made very specific to individual industry and client needs at its early design stage. Therefore, reuse and more importantly, managing the ever changing business requirements, become almost impossible. Service-orientation and architecture, model-driven business development provides us a new and powerful approach to facilitate asset based industry solution design and development. To further accelerate this, this tutorial will discuss an innovative approach that take advantage of many proven best software engineering practices, from object/component based technology, meta-data driven architecture types (archetypes) that are used to model the common structural and in some cases non-structural business entities such as customer, product, payment, etc. In order to address the consequences introduced by abstracting those common elements out of the specific industry model and be able to enable easy and meta-data based transformation, we properly decompose business components/services into a multi-layered business architecture. Therefore, process/components/services can be decomposed accordingly to facilitate the decomposition and abstraction, while maintaining certain level of necessary traceability across various artifacts. In the realization phase, existing assets/operational systems will be mapped and transformed to the required business components and services to best leverage those existing valuable industry/client investments. To support such a SOA based, model and business driven development process, existing tooling, especially the necessary transformation and integration capability, needs to be significantly enhanced. This tutorial will also present some recommendation based on some recent design a- - nd implementation, and they could be used to guide future tooling alignment and integration effort across software modeling, implementation and solution products. In addition, we will present how to leverage existing internal or external assets or product offerings and the open industry reference models and standards (such as ACCORD, ebXML, ARTS/IxRetail). This work is based on authors' collective experience in leading the large end-to-end client engagements across many industries, while promoting various industry leading software engineering best practices.

    Making your enterprise data and traditional Web services consumable through the World Wide Web is becoming increasingly important for a organization. REST (Representational State Transfer), a collection architecture principle, plays a key role in making your services easily integrated in both your enterprise applications and others via Web. This tutorial will teach you the basic of REST and the related application architecture, the Atom Publishing Protocol (APP) and how it stitches each resource in the service architecture, the best practices in constructing the REST services, and how to utilize and integrate other REST services with your existing Web service and application. Furthermore, it will also show you how to effectively use and consume the REST services from the IBM social software (Lotus Connections) in order to build your own social Web applications. You will not only learn the industrial products and trends in utilizing and making the consumable services using REST and APP, but also learn the details on how to make the most out of your own consumable services.

    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandQuick Abstract | PDF file iconPDF (127 KB)  

    Summary form only given. A business process is a collection of related structures and activities, undertaken by organizations in order to achieve certain business goals. The Web services-based business processes with a new set of protocols bring a new set of security challenges. As security has become an essential component for all software, several security solutions for XML and Web services have been proposed. In general, a security threat model is an organized representation of relevant threats, attacks, and vulnerabilities to a system. In this context, security threat modeling is an engineering technique which can be used to shape the Web service-based business processes with security requirements. The topic of security threat modeling in business process is becoming increasingly important to industry. This tutorial strives to reflect recent trends in research and developments of business processes integration and management with security concerns. In addition this tutorial will cover the fundamental concepts of security threat modeling from the perspectives of Web service-based business process. This tutorial will also address the common practices and related tools/procedures for addressing the security vulnerabilities, especially in XML attacks. A research prototype of security assessment will also be presented and demonstrated in the tutorial. View full abstract»

    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandQuick Abstract | PDF file iconPDF (446 KB) |  | HTML iconHTML  

    caBIGtrade (the cancer Biomedical Informatics Gridtrade) is an open-source, open-access information network enabling cancer researchers to share tools, data, applications, and technologies. caGrid is the underlying service-based grid software infrastructure for caBIG, integrating distributed data and analytic resources into a virtual collaborative platform for cancer research. Within caGrid, many cancer-related data analysis and aggregation tasks can make use of "canned" sets of service invocations, or workflows. As a result, there is a need to orchestrate the invocation of caGrid services through the use of both a workflow language and tooling. In this paper, we first explain why we select Taverna as a candidate for workflow authoring and invocation. We then review the development of Taverna plug-ins in general, and describe how we extend Taverna to use caGrid services. We then detail a real-world example and the lessons learned from our research. Finally we conclude with a summary and a description of potential next steps. View full abstract»
