Adaptive future Internet applications: opportunities and challenges for adaptive web services technology
Adaptive capabilities are essential features to guarantee the proper execution of Web services and service-oriented applications once dynamic changes are not exceptions but the rule. In fact, the importance of adaptive services significantly increases in the context of Future Internet (FI) applications once they will be composed of a multitude of diverse types of services that offer flexible, remote access to software features, content and computing resources. Therefore, applications in this context, will have to autonomously adapt to changes on service provisioning, availability of things and content, computing resources, and network connectivity. Current proposals for adaptive Web services and adaptive service-based applications will be challenged in such context because they fall short to support essential characteristics in FI applications. This chapter will analyze and justify the need for the transition from adaptive Web services and service-based applications to adaptive FI applications. Based on two real-world use case from multimedia and transport and Logistics domains, we examine how current adaptive solutions need to be enhanced to properly address the adaptive needs of FI applications. Finally, we propose future challenges that need to be considered in adaptive FI applications.

Abstract

Adaptive capabilities are essential features to guarantee the proper execution of Web services and service-oriented applications once dynamic changes are not exceptions but the rule. In fact, the importance of adaptive services significantly increases in the context of Future Internet (FI) applications once they will be composed of a multitude of diverse types of services that offer flexible, remote access to software features, content and computing resources. Therefore, applications in this context, will have to autonomously adapt to changes on service provisioning, availability of things and content, computing resources, and network connectivity. Current proposals for adaptive Web services and adaptive service-based applications will be challenged in such context because they fall short to support essential characteristics in FI applications. This chapter will analyze and justify the need for the transition from adaptive Web services and service-based applications to adaptive FI applications. Based on two real-world use case from multimedia and transport and Logistics domains, we examine how current adaptive solutions need to be enhanced to properly address the adaptive needs of FI applications. Finally, we propose future challenges that need to be considered in adaptive FI applications.
