Recent peer-to-peer architectures do not fulfill the idea of a service-oriented architecture to allow the flexible composition of services towards concrete applications. This can be justified by the absence of flexible notations for the composition of services that incorporate the dynamic nature exposed by peer-to-peer architectures. In this work, the(More)
As a result of the anonymity in todays Web search, it is not possible to receive a personalized search result. Neither prior search results nor search results from other users are taken into consideration. In order to resolve this anonymity towards the search engine, a system is created which locally stores the search results in the scope of a peer-to-peer(More)
The drift away from monolithic towards to distributed, service-oriented application scenarios results in a couple of new challenges concerning the management of these systems. One particular area is the management of dependencies between services. Dependencies can have different appearances, for instance, functional dependencies, semantic integrity(More)
Current peer-to-peer architectures are hardly resistant against unan-ticipated exceptions such as the failure of single peers. This can be justified by the absence of sophisticated models for exception detection and resolution in peer-to-peer architectures. On the other hand, existing generic models for such self-adaptable architectures are rather(More)
Information acquisition is a great challenge in the context of a continually growing Web. Nowadays, large Web search engines are primarily designed to assist an information pull by the user. On this platform, only actual information needs are handled without assistance of long-term needs. To overcome these shortcomings we propose a cooperative system for(More)
Due to the anonymity of the user during Web searching, no support for long-term information needs exists. First attempts for per-sonalized Web retrieval are made, however these approaches are limited to static objects and no individual recommendations from a dynamic data set can be determined. Peer-to-peer architectures build a promising platform for a(More)
