Service processes in SOA are composed dynamically by services from different service providers. At run-time, some services may become faulty and cause a service process to violate its end-to-end quality of service (QoS) constraints. We propose an effective approach for replacing only faulty services and some of their neighboring services to maintain the(More)
— Service dependency graph (SDG) is an AND/OR graph showing input output dependencies among service operations. As dependencies in an SDG are indirectly expressed by reasoning on data models used by service interface definitions, their re-usability and expressiveness are limited. In this paper, we propose an enhanced version of service dependency graph,(More)
—Delay tolerant networks (DTNs) may lack continuous network connectivity. Routing in DTNs is thus challenging since it must handle network partitioning, long delays, and dynamic topology in such networks. In recent years, social-based approaches , which attempt to exploit social behaviors of DTN nodes to make better routing decision, have drawn tremendous(More)
—With the increasing stress and unhealthy lifestyles in people's daily life, mental health problems are becoming a global concern. In particular, mood related mental health problems, such as mood disorders, depressions, and elation, are seriously impacting people's quality of life. However, due to the complexity and unstableness of personal mood, assessing(More)
—In delay tolerant networks (DTNs), the lack of continuous connectivity, network partitioning, and long delays make design of network protocols very challenging. Previous DTN research mainly focuses on routing and information propagation. However, with large number of wireless devices' participation, how to maintain efficient and dynamic topology of the DTN(More)
