Developing jxta applications for mobile devices and invoking web services deployed in jxta platform from mobile devices

Bahadır, Mesut
Today, Peer-to-peer (P2P) computing and Web Services play an important role in networking and computing. P2P computing, that aims addressing all the resources in a network and sharing them, is an old paradigm that gains importance nowadays with the advent of popular file sharing and instant messaging applications. On the other hand, a Web service is a software system that has an interface allowing applications to interact with other applications through Internet or intranet. Providing methods for publishing and discovering Web services from which mobile devices can facilitate in a P2P environment enables exploitation of P2P and Web service technologies efficiently by mobile devices. This also extends the range of devices that facilitate P2P and Web services technologies from servers and desktop computers to personal digital assistants (PDAs) and mobile phones. In this thesis, an architecture that enables publishing and discovering Web services for mobile clients that are inter-connected in a P2P environment is introduced. Key issues in this architecture are allowing mobile devices to join in a P2P network group, publishing Web services and discovering these services in P2P network. Invoking Web services that are published and discovered is another key issue in this architecture. The architecture introduced exploits P2P and Web services standards using various tools for mobile devices. For the purpose of organizing a P2P environment, JXTA protocols and services are used. WSDL is used for describing Web services. JXTA advertisements help in publication and discovery of Web services; and BPEL enables composition, deployment and execution of Web services. The architecture introduced within the scope of this thesis combines all these standards with tools that enable use of these standards on mobile devices. The work done in this thesis is realized as a part of Artemis, a


Deploying and invoking secure web services over JXTA framework
Görgün, İlhami; Doğaç, Asuman; Department of Computer Engineering (2004)
Web services introduce a new paradigm for distributed computing, and the technology that it introduces constructs a new type of Web application. Web services can be described as any software that makes its discovery and invocation available over the Internet, and uses a standardized XML messaging system. The term peer-to-peer refers to a class of decentralized systems enabling the access of shared resources available on peers that are acting both as client and as server. In this work, a peer-to-peer approac...
A certificate based authentication control model using smart mobile devices for ubiquitous computing environments
Çavdar, Davut; Eren, Pekin Erhan; Department of Information Systems (2011)
In this thesis work, a certificate based authentication model supported by mobile devices is provided for ubiquitous computing environments. The model primarily aims to create an infrastructure for controlling and regulating access requests through mobile devices to local resources and services. The model also allows users from different domains to use local resources and services within the scope of agreements between domains. In addition to conceptual description of the model, a real prototype implementat...
A study of Kangaroo Transaction model for mobile transaction management
Örenç, Zülfü; Coşar, Ahmet; Department of Information Systems (2004)
Wireless network technology has advanced to the point that it is possible to use Internet connectivity to perform job tasks while moving in a city. We simulate and experimentally evaluate Dunham̕s Kangaroo Transaction (KT) model, and a modified version of it. Our results show that the modified-KT model does not have much communication overhead (although more than the original KT model) and it is more resilient to failures of base stations.
Semantically enriched web service composition in mobile environments
Ertürkmen, K. Alpay; Doğaç, Asuman; Department of Information Systems (2003)
Web Services are self-contained, self-describing, modular applications that can be published, located, and invoked through XML artefacts across the Web. Web services technologies can be applied to many kinds of applications, where they offer considerable advantages compared to the old world of product-specific APIs, platform-specific coding, and other أbrittleؤ technology restrictions. Currently there are millions of web services available on the web due to the increase in e-commerce business volume. Web se...
Data integration over horizontally partitioned databases in service-oriented data grids
Sunercan, Hatice Kevser Sönmez; Çiçekli, Fehime Nihan; Alpdemir, Mahmut Nedim; Department of Computer Engineering (2010)
Information integration over distributed and heterogeneous resources has been challenging in many terms: coping with various kinds of heterogeneity including data model, platform, access interfaces; coping with various forms of data distribution and maintenance policies, scalability, performance, security and trust, reliability and resilience, legal issues etc. It is obvious that each of these dimensions deserves a separate thread of research efforts. One particular challenge among the ones listed above tha...
