Semantics-Aware Services for the Mobile Computing Environment

Abstract : Today's wireless networks and devices support the dynamic composition of mobile distributed systems according to networked services and resources. This has in particular led to the introduction of a number of computing paradigms, among which the Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) seems to best serve these objectives. However, common SOA solutions restrict considerably the openness of dynamic mobile systems in that they assume a specific middleware infrastructure, over which composed system components have been pre-developed to integrate. On the other hand, the Semantic Web introduces a promising approach towards the integration of heterogeneous components; current semantics-based approaches are, however, restricted to application-level interoperability. Combining the elegant properties of software architecture modeling with the semantic reasoning power of the Semantic Web paradigm, this paper introduces abstract semantic modeling of mobile services that allows both machine reasoning about service composability and enhanced interoperability at both middleware and application level.
