Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) enables the creation of distributed applications from independently developed and deployed services. As with any component-based system, the overall performance and quality of the system is an aggregate function of its component services. In this article, we present a novel approach for managing bottom-up faults in(More)
Route discovery in many mobile ad hoc protocols is based on flooding. However, flooding suffers from high overhead, which can increase contention and communication delays. In this paper, we propose two new route discovery algorithms that are aimed towards reducing these delays. Both algorithms are suitable for use with ad hoc protocols where nodes(More)
Information Management Systems that outsource part of the functionality to other (likely unknown) services need an effective way to communicate with these services, so that a mutually beneficial solution can be generated. This includes bargaining for their optimal customizations and the discovery of overlooked potential solutions. In this article, we(More)
