The Web services technology allows for easy creation of complex applications consisting of smaller components - Web services. This article performs an in-depth analysis of a Web services’ reliability problem for both atomic and composite web services. Is there really a problem of low reliability for composite applications?
Service oriented architecture is gaining momentum. However, in order to be successful, the proper and up-to-date description of services is required. Such a description may be provided by service profiling mechanisms, such as one presented in this article. Service profile can be defined as an up-to-date description of a subset of non-functional properties… (More)
