Abstract:We live in a society that is in its nature service-oriented: organizations and
individuals get services from others, and provide services to others. This
paradigm has been now applied to computer systems with the Service-Oriented
Architecture, and it is gaining momentum, mainly motivated by the natural
environment provided by the Internet to connect people and businesses. The
Service-Oriented Architecture provides an architectural style for the creation,
share, composition and execution of networked services.
Given the actual dynamic, heterogeneous and distributed nature of computer
systems, the composition of services requires mechanisms to support service
description, advertisement, discovery, composition, and execution. In this paper
we motivate the dynamic composition of networked services, presenting an
overview on why this area is gaining importance; discussing where
it has its most promising applications; and finally exposing our initial ideas on
how dynamic service composition can be realized. To tackle these
problems we present a life-cycle for the service composition task, and present
our initial framework to support dynamic service composition.
