A Hybrid Approach To Web Service Orchestration

Adam Barker

Currently most workflow research has focused on designing and implementing service orchestrations, where all message exchange takes place through a centralised server. This is a valid solution for scenarios found in e-Commerce where relatively small quantities of intermediate data are involved, but makes less sense when dealing with large quantities of intermediate data as are commonly found in the sciences. This talk discusses some early research on peer-to-peer Web services, allowing the output of one service invocation to be passed directly to where it is required as input to the next service, thereby decreasing intermediate data and network traffic.
