We develop a graph-theoretic model for service-oriented networks and propose metrics that quantify the resilience of such networks under node and edge failures. These metrics are based on the topological structure of the network and the manner in which services are distributed over the network. We present efficient algorithms to determine the maximum number of node and edge failures that can be to... View full abstract»

In this paper, we introduce MPI-style Web service (MPIWS), a novel service presented as a standard Web service but integrated with MPI programming technologies to allow Web applications to run in parallel over a loosely coupled distributed environment. MPIWS takes advantage of the SOAP communication protocol, and allows direct MPI-style communication among loosely coupled services. The MPI-style c... View full abstract»

In this work, we propose a two-step, context-based semantic approach to the problem of matching and ranking Web services for possible service composition. We present an analysis of different methods for classifying Web services for possible composition and supply a context-based semantic matching method for ranking these possibilities. Semantic understanding of Web services may provide added value... View full abstract»

For a system of distributed processes, correctness can be ensured by (statically) checking whether their composition satisfies properties of interest. However, Web services are distributed processes that dynamically discover properties of other Web services. Since the overall system may not be available statically and since each business process is supposed to be relatively simple, we propo... View full abstract»

The rapid adoption of service-oriented architecture (SOA) in many large-scale distributed applications requires the development of adaptive service-based software systems (ASBS) with the capability of monitoring the changing system status, analyzing, and controlling tradeoffs among various quality-of-service (QoS) aspects, and adapting service configurations to satisfy multiple QoS requirements si...

Evolvability is essential for computer systems to adapt to the dynamic and changing requirements in response to instant or delayed feedback from a service environment that nowadays is becoming more and more context aware; however, current context-aware service-centric models largely lack the capability to continuously explore human intentions that often drive system evolution. To support service r... View full abstract»
