Trustworthy stigmergic service composition and adaptation in decentralized environments

Journal Article


Abstract


  • THE emerging area of Service-Oriented Computing

    (SOC) has drawn a great deal of attention

    in recent years, prompting researchers to devise a

    variety of technologies to facilitate loosely coupled

    and flexible SOC architectures. Web services are autonomous

    application modules that can be described,

    published and located in SOC environments. To build

    a complex application, one may have to link a set of

    service providers across their heterogeneous environments

    [29]. Service composition fulfills users’ requirements

    by combining services in different repositories.

    The users’ requirements can be functional or nonfunctional.

    The functional requirements are in relation

    to the overall outcome concerning the functionalities

    of the business process, while the non-functional requirements

    pertain to the quality of the composition

    as a whole, e.g., availability, reliability, cost and response

    time. As the number of web services, providing

    similar functionalities, grows large, the problem

    of selecting web services with the best guaranteed

    Quality of Service (QoS) becomes critical.
