9780470091487: Service-Oriented Computing: Semantics, Processes, Agents

This comprehensive text explains the principles and practice of Web services and relates all concepts to practical examples and emerging standards.  Its discussions include:

  • Ontologies
  • Semantic web technologies
  • Peer-to-peer service discovery
  • Service selection
  • Web structure and link analysis
  • Distributed transactions
  • Process modelling
  • Consistency management. 

The application of these technologies is clearly explained within the context of planning, negotiation, contracts, compliance, privacy, and network policies. The presentation of the intellectual underpinnings of Web services draws from several key disciplines such as databases, distributed computing, artificial intelligence, and multi-agent systems for techniques and formalisms.  Ideas from these disciplines are united in the context of Web services and service-based applications. 

Featuring an accompanying website and teacher’s manual that includes a complete set of transparencies for lectures, copies of open-source software for exercises and working implementations, and resources to conduct course projects, this book makes an excellent graduate textbook.  It will also prove an invaluable reference and training tool for practitioners.

From the Back Cover:

Learn how to build more effective distributed applications with Web services!

Service-Oriented Computing explains the principles and practice of successful services, with many of its concepts developed in the context of Web services. Since every aspect of a service is geared towards compatibility – so they can be described, selected, engaged, evaluated, and collaborated with – Web services allow a more effective development of distributed applications than previous software approaches.

Service-Oriented Computing presents the concepts, architectures, techniques, and infrastructure necessary for employing services. It provides a comprehensive overview of the state-of-the-art in Web services and associated disciplines, relating concepts to practical examples and emerging standards. Applications of technologies are explained within the context of planning, negotiation, contacts, compliance, privacy, and network policies.

Service-Oriented Computing:

  • Draws from several key disciplines such as databases, distributed computing, artificial intelligence, and multiagent systems.
  • Covers basic standards and protocols (XML, SOAP, WSDL, .NET, J2EE) in-depth.
  • Describes advanced concepts such as ontologies, Semantic Web technologies, distributed transactions, process modeling, consistency management, organization, business protocols, peer-to-peer service discovery, and service selection.
  • Contains a detailed section on the web ontology language (OWL) as well as business process languages (WSCI, BPEL4WS, BPML, and ebXML).
  • Features an accompanying website with a complete set of transparencies, solutions to exercises, and open-source and public-domain tools for you to build and experiment with your own service-oriented computing systems.

This invaluable reference will serve as a comprehensive senior undergraduate and postgraduate student textbook on service-oriented computing, enabling practitioners, technologists, strategists, and researchers to be adequately prepared for the fast-approaching explosion in Web service provision.
