    The rapid growth of services and the Internet of Things vision lead to the future of Internet in which a massive number of services are available and connected to each other. In such service network, dependency between services potentially causes cascading failure, where the failure of one service can cause the failure of dependent services. Cascading failure tolerance is determined by the topolog... View full abstract»

  • Delay Tolerant Harvesting of Monitoring Data for MANET-Hosted Service-Based Systems

    Publication Year: 2015, Page(s):9 - 16
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (597 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    We are concerned with reliably harvesting data used to monitor a service-based system hosted in a mobile ad hoc network (MANET) environment. These data are time-bounded, time-sensitive time-series data recorded by individual hosts in the network. Harvesting is used to gather the data for global time-series analyses, such as fault localization. The MANET environment challenges data harvesting, due ... View full abstract»

    Statistics show that most vehicles spend many hours per day in a parking garage, parking lot, or driveway. At the moment, the computing resources of these vehicles are untapped. Inspired by the success of conventional cloud services, a group of researchers have recently introduced the concept of a Vehicular Cloud. The defining difference between vehicular and conventional clouds lie in the distrib... View full abstract»

    Reputation plays a crucial role in the success of e-commerce. In a commercial transaction, it is necessary to present reputation values of web services in a timely and a robust manner so as to counter the unfair ratings of malicious users. To address the time lag problem, most popular web sites use an averaging algorithm with fixed sliding windows, window size is constant and older ratings are dro... View full abstract»

    Service computing is playing a more and more important role in current Internet activities, especially with the rapid adoption of electric markets, more and more individuals are engaging with commercial services. As the potential profit of service computing is becoming clear, malicious users are ramping up unfair rating attacks that can mislead honest service consumers into transacting with dishon...

  • Efficient Computing Composite Service Skyline with QoS Correlations

    Publication Year: 2015, Page(s):41 - 48
    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (249 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In the service-oriented architecture, component services can be composed to provide value-added services. The notion of composite service skyline facilitates obtaining a QoS-optimal service combination. State-of-the-art approach to computing composite service skyline assumes that candidate services of different tasks are independent. However, real-word services are usually QoS-correlated. To this ... View full abstract»

  • Business Rule Driven Composite Service Optimisation and Selection

    Publication Year: 2015, Page(s):49 - 56
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (288 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Quality of Service (QoS) is often essential when the service consumer looks for a single service from a large pool. However, QoS of a composite service is aggregated in a rough way because the concrete service providers in the composition are seen as independent ones. In reality, business relationships such as dependencies and conflicts often exist among service providers, which unavoidably affect... View full abstract»

    Services are self-contained and platform independent software components that aim at maximizing software reuse. The automated composition of services to a target software artifact has been tackled with many AI techniques, but existing approaches make unreasonably strong assumptions such as a predefined data flow, are limited to tiny problem sizes, ignore non-functional properties, or assume offlin...

    The introduction of Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) enables service providers to offer software-defined network functions with elasticity and flexibility. Its core technique, dynamic allocation procedure of NFV components onto cloud resources requires rapid response to changes on-demand to remain cost and QoS effective. In this paper, Markov Decision Process (MDP) is applied to the NP-hard ... View full abstract»

    Today, the proliferation of mobile devices coupled with the widespread availability of the Internet is opening up new service opportunities in numerous areas. However, developing mobile applications turns out to be very challenging. Two major plagues are heterogeneity and the need for dynamic adaptation happening at runtime. Dealing with these aspects leads to several problems and impasses. In thi... View full abstract»

    Infrastructure and Application Service Delivery typically comprises of complex workflows such as software installation/configuration, OS configuration, file system management etc. To manage costs as well as SLAs, enterprises constantly look towards automation of these workflows. While declarative approaches for automated workflow planning have been described in the literature, they do not address ... View full abstract»

  • Spectrum-Based Runtime Anomaly Localisation in Service-Based Systems

    Publication Year: 2015, Page(s):90 - 97
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (888 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Runtime anomalies occurring to service-based systems (SBSs) must be located and fixed in a timely manner in order to guarantee successful delivery of outcomes in response to user requests. Monitoring all component services constantly is impractical due to excessive resource consumption. Inspecting all component services upon anomalies is time-consuming and thus also impractical. In this work, we p... View full abstract»

    One of the key interests in web services is the ability to compose them in order to build more powerful and complex ones running in an interoperable and distributed setting. Several languages, like BPEL, that describe such services have been proposed. Similarly to traditional complex systems, web service compositions may exhibit inappropriate behaviors in the presence of failures. Compensation mec... View full abstract»

    Parallel execution and cloud technologies are the keys to speed-up service invocation when processing large-scale data. In SOA, service providers normally employ policies to limit parallel execution of the services based on arbitrary decisions. In order to attain optimal performance improvement, service users need to adapt to parallel execution policies of the services. A composite service is a co... View full abstract»
