Service Composition Based Middleware Architecture for Mobile Grid

M. A. Maluk Mohamed, D. Janakiram


Service Composition refers to the construction of complex services with the help of more primitive and easily executable services or components. With the proliferation of wireless communication and the mobile Internet, the demand for mobile data services has increased. In addition the recent spurt of e-services and m-services has increased the importance of service composition. We envisage service composition to play a crucial role in providing mobile devices access to complex services. The basis for our proposed approach is to virtualize the individual system resources as services that can be described, discovered and dynamically configured at runtime to execute an application. The paper discuss a novel paradigm which integrates mobile devices into the traditional grid, with the capability for composition of services. To accomplish such a global service composition in the new model we propose to add functional layers over the already proposed Anonymous Remote Mobile Cluster Computing model. The idea behind such middleware is to use the available resources efficiently and to hide the complexity inherent in managing heterogeneous services. This paper describes the unique capabilities of the proposed middleware and gives the layered view of the proposed architecture.
