The Design and Evaluation of MPI-Style Web Services [chapter]

Ian Cooper, Yan Huang
2008 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This paper describes how Message Passing Web Services (MPWS) can be used as a message passing tool to enable parallel processing between WS-based processes in a web services oriented computing environment  ...  Following these evaluations we conclude that: using web services to enable parallel processing is a practical solution in coarse grained parallel applications; and that due to inter message pipelining,  ...  The next steps will be to consider the design of other send styles, such as ssend (synchronous send), and evaluate MPI style collective communication functionality such as: broadcast; gather and scatter  ...

Application-aware Interface for SOAP Communication in Web Services

Hao Wang, Yizhu Tong, Hong Liu, Taoying Liu
2006 2006 IEEE International Conference on Cluster Computing  
SOAP protocol has emerged as the Web Service communication standard. Because of the relatively poor performance, many researchers focus on improving the speed of processing SOAP message.  ...  In this paper, we propose SPI, which introduces client usage pattern to the low level SOAP process infrastructure, in order to improve the performance of some kind of Web Services applications with specific  ...  The Web Services Description Language (WSDL) describes Web Services interface, the XML-based SOAP is the most widely used communication protocol, and some underlying protocols, usually HTTP, define the  ...

Approaching a parallelized XML parser optimized for multi-coreprocessors

Michael R. Head, Madhusudhan Govindaraju
2007 Proceedings of the 2007 workshop on Service-oriented computing performance: aspects, issues, and approaches - SOCP '07  
Thus far, applications using Web services (in the grid community, for example) have largely focused on XML protocol standardization and tool building efforts, and not on addressing the performance bottlenecks  ...  As has been previously shown, XML parsers spend a large percentage of time tokenizing the input in an inherently serial process, typically running a deterministic finite automaton on the input.  ...  The focus thus far in grid middleware and distributed application design has been on how the service-oriented functionality can be achieved using Web services standards.  ...
