Service-Oriented Computing (SOC) is a new computing paradigm that utilizes services as the basic constructs to support the development of rapid, low-cost and easy composition of distributed applications even in heterogeneous environments. The promise of Service-Oriented Computing is a world of cooperating services where application components are assembled(More)

One of the largest obstacles for the automation of web services, as a composition of services that allows for the decrease in efforts, time, and cost in their manual development, integration, and maintenance, is finding a way to handle this planning problem, which is far from trivial. At the time of this article (2004), there were two approaches to tackle(More)
We present a framework that supports the formal verification of early requirements specifications. The framework is based on Formal Tropos, a specification language that adopts primitive concepts for modeling early requirements (such as actor, goal, and strategic dependency), along with a rich temporal specification language. We show how existing formal(More)
Rarely planning domains are fully observable. For this reason, the ability to deal with partial observability is one of the most important challenges in planning. In this paper, we tackle the problem of strong planning under partial observability in nondeter-ministic domains: find a conditional plan that will result in a successful state, regardless of(More)
We propose a novel planning framework for the automated composition of web services. We consider services that are specified and implemented in industrial standard languages for business processes modeling and execution, like BPEL4WS. These languages describe web services whose behavior is intrinsically asynchronous. For this reason, the key aspect of our(More)
