    Web service composition is a mechanism for creating new web services from existing Web services. Web service composition enables rapid service creation by reusing existing services. Dynamic composition is composition at runtime. A business model defines the different parties involved in service provisioning and their relationships. However, the existing business models are not suitable for Web ser... View full abstract»

    Peer-to-peer (P2P) systems are in high demand for all sorts of tasks-video communication, resource sharing, and content retrieval, to mention a few. However, current P2P solutions are intrinsically incompatible with the IP multimedia subsystem (IMS), the service provisioning framework adopted by the major telecommunication players. We look at ways to develop P2P applications over IMS, identifying ... View full abstract»

    The IP multimedia subsystem enables a service-rich communication landscape and the convergence of mobile and fixed networks. However, IMS solutions can succeed only when charging for these new services is supported in a flexible and efficient manner. To meet the new challenges, the 3GPP recently introduced a generic charging framework. In this article we give a short overview of the 3GPP charging ... View full abstract»
