An architecture for autonomic web service process planning
MetadataShow full item record
Web service composition is a technology that has received considerable attention in the last number of years. Languages and tools to aid in the process of creating composite web services have been received specific attention. Web service composition is the process of linking single web services together in order to accomplish more complex tasks. One area of web service composition that has not received as much attention is the area of dynamic error handling and re-planning, enabling autonomic composition. Given a repository of service descriptions and a task to complete, it is possible for AI planners to automatically create a plan that will achieve this goal. If however a service in the plan is unavailable or erroneous the plan will fail. Motivated by this problem, this paper suggests autonomous re-planning as a means to overcome dynamic problems. Our solution involves automatically recovering from faults and creating a context-dependent alternate plan.
