This paper describes an experimental Flow-based Infrastructure for Composing Autonomous Services (FICAS), which supports a service-composition paradigm that integrates loosely coupled software components. For traditional software service composition frameworks, the data-flows and control-flows are centrally coordinated, and the composed service operates as the hub for all data communications. FICAS, on ...

This paper presents a loosely coupled service-composition paradigm. This paradigm employs a distributed data flow that differs markedly from centralized information flow adopted by current service integration frameworks, such as CORBA, J2EE and SOAP. Distributed data flows support direct data transmission to avoid many performance bottlenecks of centralized processing. In ...

This paper describes a prototype implementation of an engineering data access system for a finite element analysis (FEA) program. The system incorporates a commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) database as the backend to store selected analysis results; and the Internet is utilized as the communication channel to access the analysis results. The ...

This paper studies service integration infrastructures that support the execution of megaservices --- large-scale applications that are composed of autonomous service modules. Integration infrastructures are classified according to their control-flow and data-flow structures. We analyze the effects of data-flows on the performances of the centralized and distributed data-flow models. A ...

With the emergence of the Internet, collaborative computing has become more feasible than ever. Organizations can share valuable information among each other. However, certain users should only access certain portions of source data. The CHAOS (Configurable Heterogeneous Active Object System) project addresses security issues that arise when information is shared ...
