A Distributed Service Composition Protocol for Pervasive Environments
March 31, 2004
Service composition in pervasive environments enables users to utilize services in the environment to solve complex queries. Current work in development of service composition architectures focuses on wired-networked environments where solutions are centralized and tailored towards a reliable network and fixed service topology. In this paper, we present an alternate and novel design architecture of a broker-based distributed service composition protocol for pervasive environments. We present simulation results by comparing our protocol to a centralized architecture for composition. Results show that our distributed broker-based composition architecture perform better than the centralized solution in terms of composition efficiency, broker arbitration efficiency and composition radius.
