In this thesis, some novel ideas are presented for solving automated web service composition problem. Some possible real world problems such as partial observability of environment, nondeterministic effects of web services, service execution failures are solved through some mechanisms. In addition to automated web service composition, automated web service invocation task is handled in this thesis by using reflection mechanism. The proposed approach is based on AI planning. Web service composition problem is translated to AI planning problem and a novel AI planner namely “Simplanner” that is designed for working in highly dynamic environments under time constraints is adapted to the proposed system. World altering service calls are done by conforming to the WS-Coordination and WS-Business Activity web service transaction specifications in order to physically repair failure situations and prevent undesired side effects of aborted web service composition efforts.

A test oriented service and object model for software product lines
Parlakol, Nazif Bülent; Karagöz, Pınar; Department of Computer Engineering (2010)
In this thesis, a new modeling technique is proposed for minimizing regression testing effort in software product lines. The “Product Flow Model” is used for the common representation of products in application engineering and the “Domain Service and Object Model” represents the variant based relations between products and core assets. This new approach provides a solution for avoiding unnecessary work load of regression testing using the principles of sub-service decomposition and variant based product/sub...

Natural language query processing in ontology based multimedia databases
Aygül, Filiz Alaca; Çiçekli, Fehime Nihan; Department of Computer Engineering (2010)
In this thesis a natural language query interface is developed for semantic and spatio-temporal querying of MPEG-7 based domain ontologies. The underlying ontology is created by attaching domain ontologies to the core Rhizomik MPEG-7 ontology. The user can pose concept, complex concept (objects connected with an “AND” or “OR” connector), spatial (left, right . . . ), temporal (before, after, at least 10 minutes before, 5 minutes after . . . ), object trajectory and directional trajectory (east, west, southe...
Missing link discovery in wikipedia: a comparative study
Sunercan, Ömer; Birtürk, Ayşe Nur; Department of Computer Engineering (2010)
The fast growing online encyclopedia concept presents original and innovative features by taking advantage of information technologies. The links connecting the articles is one of the most important instances of these features. In this thesis, we present our work on discovering missing links in Wikipedia articles. This task is important for both readers and authors of Wikipedia. Readers will benefit from the increased article quality with better navigation support. On the other hand, the system can be employ...
Design and implementation of an open security architecture for a software-based security module
Kaynar, Kaan; Özgit, Attila; Department of Computer Engineering (2009)
Main purpose of this thesis work is to design a comprehensive and open security architecture whose desired parts could be realized on a general-purpose embedded computer without any special cryptography hardware. The architecture provides security mechanisms that implement known cryptography techniques, operations of some famous network security protocols and appropriate system security methods. Consequently, a server machine may offload a substantial part of its security processing tasks to an embedded com...
