A survey of methods and approaches for reliable dynamic service compositions

Anne Immonen, Daniel Pakkala
2014 Service Oriented Computing and Applications  
An increasing amount of today's software systems is developed by dynamically composing available atomic services to form a single service that responds to consumers' demand.  ...  We perform a literature survey of existing methods and approaches for reliable composite services to find out how they match with the criteria of our framework.  ...  Thangavel and Palanisamy [115] suggest a dynamic Web service discovery framework with QoS support, in which a reputation manager assigns reputation scores to the services based on customer feedback on  ...

The Dynamics of Rivalry

Kim Warren
1999 Business Strategy Review  
Firms face a constant challenge to understand and manage competition over time: what to do when and how much, for how long, and with what expected effect.  ...  Just three forms of rivalry capture the dynamics of these processes: developing potential customers, capturing rivals' customers and competing for sales to shared customers.  ...  The low-cost car manufacturers lack many of the strategic resources needed to attack Mercedes' market -product attributes, dealership quality, reputation and the current customer-base itself.  ...

Efficient change management in long-term composed services

Xumin Liu, Athman Bouguettaya, Qi Yu, Zaki Malik
2010 Service Oriented Computing and Applications  
In the first phase, reputation is used as a trust mechanism to weed out those Web services that do not exhibit acceptable reputation.  ...  We propose a framework where managing changes in LCSs is modeled as a dual service query optimization process.  ...  This work then introduces a Modeling Language to support Dynamic Evolution within Workflow System (ML-DEWS).  ...

Toward autonomic web services trust and selection

E. Michael Maximilien, Munindar P. Singh
2004 Proceedings of the 2nd international conference on Service oriented computing - ICSOC '04  
Consequently, our approach enables applications to be dynamically configured at runtime in a manner that continually adapts to the preferences of the participants.  ...  We propose a multiagent approach that naturally provides a solution to the selection problem.  ...  While WSLA solves some of the problems to guarantee quality levels, it lacks support for dynamism as required for a truly open environment.  ...
