Service oriented system design through process decomposition

Akbıyık, Eren Koçak
Although service oriented architecture has reached a particular maturity level especially in the technological dimension, there is a lack of common and acceptable approach to design a software system through composition and integration of web services. In this thesis, a service oriented system design approach for Service Oriented Architecture based software development is introduced to fill this gap. This new methodology basically offers a procedural top-down decomposition of a given software system allowing several abstraction levels. At the higher levels of the decomposition, the system is divided into abstract nodes that correspond to process models in the decomposition tree. Any node is a process and keeps the sequence and the state information for the possible sub-processes in this decomposition tree. Nodes which are defined as process models may include some sub-nodes to present details for the intermediate levels of the model. Eventually at the leaf level, process models are decomposed into existing web services as the atomic units of system execution. All processes constructing the system decomposition tree are modeled with BPEL (Business Process Execution Language) to expose the algorithmic details of the design. This modeling technique is also supported with a graphical modeling language referred to as SOSEML (Service Oriented Software Engineering Modeling Language) that is also newly introduced in this thesis.


Design and implementation of a plug-in framework for distributed object technologies
Kadıoğlu, Koray; Doğru, Ali Hikmet; Department of Computer Engineering (2006)
This thesis presents a framework design and implementation that enables run-time selection of different remote call mechanisms. In order to implement an extendable and modular system with run-time upgrading facility, a plug-in framework design is used. Since such a design requires enhanced usage of run-time facilities of the programming language that is used to implement the framework, in this study Java is selected because of its reflection and dynamic class loading facilities. A sample usage of this frame...
Scheduling approaches for parameter sweep applications in a heterogeneous distributed environment
Karaduman, Gülşah; Şener, Cevat; Alpdemir, Mahmut Nedim; Department of Computer Engineering (2010)
In this thesis, the focus is on the development of scheduling algorithms for Sim-PETEK which is a framework for parallel and distributed execution of simulations. Since it is especially designed for running parameter sweep applications in a heterogeneous distributed computational environment, multi-round and adaptive scheduling approaches are followed. Five different scheduling algorithms are designed and evaluated for scheduling purposes of Sim-PETEK. Development of these algorithms are arranged in a way t...
Providing scalability for an automated web service composition framework
Kaya, Ertay; Çiçekli, Fehime Nihan; Department of Computer Engineering (2010)
In this thesis, some enhancements to an existing automatic web service composition and execution system are described which provide a practical significance to the existing framework with scalability, i.e. the ability to operate on large service sets in reasonable time. In addition, the service storage mechanism utilized in the enhanced system presents an effective method to maintain large service sets. The described enhanced system provides scalability by implementing a pre-processing phase that extracts s...
Variability modeling in software product lines
Kaşıkçı, Barış Can Cengiz; Bilgen, Semih; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2009)
Software product lines provide enhanced means for systematic reuse when constructing systems within a particular domain. In order to achieve this, systems in a product line are expected to have a significant amount of commonality. Variability is what distinguishes these systems from one another and is spread across various product line artifacts. This thesis focuses on modeling and managing product line variability. The concept of concerns is proposed as a means of variability modeling. Another proposal is ...
Web service composition under resource allocation constraints
Karakoç, Erman; Karagöz, Pınar; Department of Computer Engineering (2007)
Web service composition is an inevitable aspect of web services technology, which solves complex problems by combining available basic services and ordering them to best suit the problem requirements. Automatic composition gives us flexibility of selecting best candidate services at composition time, this would require the user to define the resource allocation constraints for selecting and composing candidate web services. Resource allocation constraints define restrictions on how to allocate resources, an...
