Many believe that Cloud will reshape the entire ICT industry as a revolution. In this paper, we aim to pinpoint the challenges and issues of Cloud computing. We first discuss two related computing paradigms - Service-Oriented Computing and Grid computing, and their relationships with Cloud computing We then identify several challenges from the Cloud(More)
Cloud computing has been a hot topic in the research community since 2007. In cloud computing, the online services are conducted to be pay-as-you-use. Service customers need not be in a long term contract with service providers. Service level agreements (SLAs) are agreements signed between a service provider and another party such as a service consumer,(More)
Digital ecosystems transcend the traditional, rigorously defined, collaborative environments from centralised, distributed or hybrid models into an open, flexible, domain cluster, demand-driven, interactive environment. A digital ecosystem is a newly networked architecture and collaborative environment that addresses the weakness of client-server,(More)
An XML enabled framework for representation of association rules in databases was first presented in [4]. In Frequent Structure Mining (FSM), one of the popular approaches is to use graph matching that use data structures such as the adjacency matrix [7] or adjacency list [8]. Another approach represents semistructured tree-like structures using a string(More)
Cloud computing is a new form of technology, which infrastructure, developing platform, software, and storage can be delivered as a service in a pay as you use cost model. However, for critical business application and more sensitive information, cloud providers must be selected based on high level of trustworthiness. In this paper, we present a trust model(More)
Tree mining has recently attracted a lot of interest in areas such as Bioinformatics, XML mining, Web mining, etc. We are mainly concerned with mining frequent induced and embedded subtrees. While more interesting patterns can be obtained when mining embedded subtrees, unfortunately mining such embedding relationships can be very costly. In this paper, we(More)
Component retrieval/discovery is a well-established research direction in Software Engineering. With the surge of Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA), service discovery has become increasingly crucial. However, the public UDDI Business Registry - the primary service discovery mechanism over the Internet - has been shut down permanently since 2006. Moreover,(More)
The eXtensible Markup Language (XML) is fast emerging as the dominant standard for describing and interchanging data among various systems and databases on the Internet. It offers the Document Type Definition (DTD) as a formalism for defining the syntax and structure of XML documents. The XML Schema definition language, as a replacement for the DTD,(More)
