    Next-generation applications based on Web services impose additional requirements on the use of coordination protocols with various optimizations, such as the two-phase commit protocol (2PC). We analyse the well-known 2PC optimizations presumed commit and presumed abort, and present an improved 2PC that is suitable for Web services based applications. More specifically, the protocol allows every i... View full abstract»

    Mobile Web services enable the IT industry and the mobile industry to create products and services that meet customer needs within the existing Web services framework. Transaction support is crucial in mobile Web services. The existing mobile transaction models are application-specific and not suitable to investigate the generic theoretical model. We present a new formal method called PMTM (P syst... View full abstract»

    Creating Web processes using Web service technology gives us the opportunity for selecting new services, which best suit our need at the moment. Doing this automatically requires us to quantify our criteria for selection. In addition, there are challenging issues of correctness and optimality. We present a constraint driven Web service composition tool in METEOR-S, which allows the process designe... View full abstract»

    The emerging Web service technology has enabled the development of Internet-based applications that integrate distributed and heterogeneous systems and processes, which are owned by different organizations. However, while Web services are rapidly becoming a fundamental paradigm for the development of complex Web applications, several security issues still need to be addressed. Among the various op...

  • Managing trust in Active XML

    Publication Year: 2004, Page(s):41 - 48
    Request permission for reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (392 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Active XML combines XML data and service calls to allow a simple and powerful Web services implementation. Security in Active XML is currently handled by matching the structure of the received data with an XML schema representing the allowed data (including service calls). This solution is not fully satisfactory in case of an open environment where the services do not often know or trust each othe... View full abstract»

  • A role based access control for Web services

    Web services are vulnerable to various types of security attacks. We address one type of attacks, where applications trying to access services to which they are not authorized. Existing access control for Web services lack of support for global services. As such services are WAN-based, therefore access control needed to deal with various levels of Web services, including global (for composite serv... View full abstract»

  • A SRP based handler for Web service access control

    Security is a critical issue. The wide use of Internet applications has tremendous benefits, but a security fail can expose confidential data. Web services is a software application that can be remotely accessed over Internet using interoperable standards based on XML. At this time, there are no broadly adopted specifications for Web services security and we present an extension to the SRP (Secure... View full abstract»

  • Assessing the risk and value of adopting emerging and unstable Web services specifications

    With the proliferation of Web services specifications, the question of which of the multiplicity of technologies to adopt arises. While sometimes the decision can be based purely on matching requirements to protocol capabilities, a harder consideration is whether the chosen specifications will enable wide interoperability with other systems, or lead to an architectural dead-end. We present a risk ... View full abstract»

    Large monolithic business systems, as for example the business suite Mysap from SAP, are increasingly restructured in system architectures with fine-granular components, which are loosely coupled by Web services. Their intra-system collaboration has usually no need for dynamic discovery with UDDI. Those architectures show many advantages, but cause also a performance problem, which might become an...

    Nowadays e-services are gaining strong momentum. The Web is a strongly connected environment and it is moving from being a simple collection of HTML pages toward a container of e-services. In an extremely competitive world, providers of e-service aim at satisfying user needs, providing enriched e-services characterized by high adaptivity to the context and multichannel provisioning. Providers also... View full abstract»

    The effectiveness of decision-making in agriculture domain can be improved by integrating current local environmental conditions with agricultural information system (AIS). To achieve this objective a series of functional blocks is proposed; which involves collection of environmental parameters from the farm, merging data from multiple sensors, communicating the collected data to the application s...

    We present a Web-services framework for publishing, browsing, and analyzing real-time sensor data. Existing work, based on database technologies, assumes a known set of sensors, deployed for a specific application, intended for a group of users who are aware of the application. In contrast, our work provides a new environment for publishing real-time sensor data, and sharing sensor-based applicati... View full abstract»
